Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya

Shambhavi Mahamudra kriya is a powerful and purifying energy technique using the breath. This practice aligns your entire system so that your body, mind and emotions function in harmony, establishing a chemistry of blissfulness within you.
When practiced regularly, this 21-minute kriya can bring the following benefits into ones life:

  • Improved mental clarity, sleep quality and increased energy levels
  • Ability to handle stressful situations effortlessly
  • Deepening of interpersonal relationships
  • Helps to purify the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, space) in the body leading to pleasantness in the body, mind and emotions
  • Relief from chronic ailments such as allergies, insomnia, hypertension, diabetes and obesity
  • Access to the innate intelligence and competence within, which is the very source of creation
  • Greater peace and joy in everyday life

Done in a simple seated asana or posture, Shambhavi gives you the access to your deepest life energies and makes them vibrantly alive. It does not require any physical fitness or previous knowledge of yoga and is easy to integrate into any lifestyle.


“I find that this is a particularly amazing time to be alive, because there is a new intersection between spirituality and science. That’s why I like the fact that you are calling it Inner Engineering.”

“Sadhguru, you have been an inspiration to me. I mean a true inspiration. I hope everybody comes to Isha in one way or another.”

“Inner Engineering teaches us to abandon our miseries and live blissfully. The most important takeaway is that we need to ‘make a life’ instead of ‘earning a living’.”

Chandrababu Naidu
Chandrababu NaiduChief Minister, Andhra Pradesh, India

“The perspective and practices that Sadhguru has given, gives you the strength and stability to go through the day without getting overly disturbed by stress. My equanimity and sense of calmness in the face of all that life throws at me has certainly improved a lot.”

Ravi Venkatesan

“All my questions has been answered in this 3-day Shambhavi Mahamudra program. The emptiness I felt throughout my life got filled with powerful energy. I started seeing life in a different way.”

Bradley McArthur

“Overnight I recovered from the adrenal fatigue which prevented me from going beyond. Not only I have been feeling blissful, content, and serene since I took the Inner Engineering program, I feel so energized and alive! My concentration, memory, and “joie de vivre” are back!”

Vivianne Nantel

“I am more aware. I am living more from this moment or experience in life rather than allowing my mind to dictate my day-to-day life based on past experiences or memories.”

Craig Kolavo

“I get less appetite and sleep late in night I feel more confidence in me and at the same time compassionate”

Gunjan Rajgor

“My reaction time to negative situations is much slower. The course has shown me how to make more conscious decisions. Again, Thank You.”

Mary Shank

“Greater awareness to each moment. Awareness bringing gratitude for each moment and whatever it brings. Noticing my reactions to events in life without being overwhelmed by events. A greater awareness and connection to the world around me, the natural world, the people around me.”

Alicia Fries

“I no longer see the limitations in my life as a problem that is holding me back. Just because I am unable to do something, that doesn’t prevent me from exploring life. I used to look at the way the social system is shaped as something preventing me from being happy. Now I am happy just living my life. Now that I am happy I see things as they are. Knowing how things are has completely changed how I go about living my life the way I want it to be.”

Andrew Pawlowski

“I had allergic rhinitis for 17 years. After doing the Shambhavi program, the frequency and severity has reduced. I feel my immunity level has been boosted up. I have fast recovery from fever. My body weight is maintained. My sensitivity and fear towards external environment have reduced a lot.”

Abbey Fitzgerald

“I have been doing my Isha practice for 1 year and 3 months; since beginning I have lost over 25 lbs, no longer have allergies, am fully awake, energetic and focused throughout my long workday, I have no stress in my fast-paced, detailed, deadline-driven world, I really could write a book on changes on my life – increased intuition and awareness is something I wasn’t expecting.”

Susan Fair

“What I felt in the presence of Sadhguru cannot be described and I keep it it to myself not finding the right words. The initiation has been a key moment and what happened to me at that moment is forever in the core of my being.”

Paul Renault

“I have become much calmer and in control. Anger is getting to crumble. I am able to love my kids much better and react positively.”

Ravichand Nandhi

“I am more peaceful. I can observe myself and notice how is my life and how I let some feelings that I have ruin my serenity. I know that how I feel only depends on me. I am working to love myself and the world a little more every day.”

Mila Tapperi Hajjar

“A greater ability to respond to circumstances rather than react. A clearer sense of purpose. I feel that my relationships have improved with both colleagues and family members. I am more productive, less tired. Life feels more exciting and less challenging.”

Andy Grant

“I feel more positive, see life differently and live more joyfully everyday. I feel a certain sense of peace in me which cannot be truly described in words. I feel empowered as well to create my life the way I want it to be.”

Hina Gidwani

“After doing Shambhavi for several months, I became much calmer. I no longer simply react to everything that goes around me. At work, I am much less attached to my own ideas and more appreciative of others’ contributions, and that has made me much more effective in team situations.”

William J.P.

“I had anxiety, depression and insomnia for 1 year. I had to consult a psychiatrist as my sleep was very poor. For 6 months I slept only with sleeping dose. At this stage I did the Shambhavi program and I recovered dramatically in the next year of practice. I had even stopped taking medication.”

Matt Stuart

“I would first like to thank Sadhguru for teaching me the Shambhavi Mahamudra. It has really increased the quality and the intensity of my focus and attention in a big way that I cannot describe in words. During the practice I felt a very strong presence pulsating within me. My awareness has increased manifold. This is not happening because I am trying to be aware, but this sense of awareness has come to me automatically in a very strong way after doing the Shambhavi kriya.
I also feel my body’s physical energy has increased, and the need to have food has decreased, and I don’t feel any exhaustion in my body even after working long hours, the body feels very light.”

Derek Thomas

“I feel more alive and in tune with my surroundings. When I practice what I’ve learned I feel more at peace and am able to accept life as it is. The depression I had been experiencing seems to have subsided and I have more joy in my everyday life.”

Sid Ripplinger

“I am not looking so much as what I can get, but what I can be. I am more peaceful. I am understanding all material things are easy to attain but being blissful is the ultimate. My heart is open to others not just working for myself. I feel more. I am not trying to control situations but just letting things happen and respond to that.”

Jennifer Maves

“I am beginning to see the real Me who has never left my side even when I have been wandering around in the world trying to be someone else. I feel like I am returning to source. People at my workplace even notice the change.”

Ralf Putz

“People ask me what had happened to me. I look so vibrant with energy, so joyful. That’s exactly how I feel. There is clarity again within me, purpose and so much love for life. I am deeply touched.”

“Only when you are in touch with the innermost core
of who you are, you live a complete life.”Sadhguru

Sadhguru is a realised yogi and mystic – a man whose passion for life spills into everything he encounters. With a keen mind and a heart that knows no boundary, Sadhguru makes the ancient yogic sciences relevant to contemporary minds, providing a door to the deeper dimensions of life.

For all of the strides we have made in science and technology, with standards of living unimaginable a century ago, most human beings still remain in search of wholeness and purpose in their lives. Sadhguru’s fundamental vision is to offer the science of inner wellbeing to every human being. From this vision stem a multitude of projects and transformational programmes, all towards the same aim: to raise every human being to the peak of their potential, be exuberant, all inclusive, in harmony within themselves and with the world.

Named one of India’s 50 most influential people, through an approach that does not ascribe to any belief system, Sadhguru’s work has deeply touched and transformed the lives of millions worldwide.

An author, poet, visionary and internationally renowned speaker, Sadhguru can put across quantum leaps in ideas in a downright pragmatic manner — it is this ability, perhaps, that has attracted so many universities, international conferences and corporates such as UN, TED, MIT, World Bank and the World Economic Forum to invite him as a speaker time and again. His talks have brought clarity and perception to leading intellectuals, business leaders and policy makers around the world, creating a wellspring of inclusive action and economics.

A Yogi’s Guide to Joy

Isha Foundation is pleased to announce that Sadhguru’s latest book, Inner Engineering: A Yogi’s Guide to Joy, was published on September 20, 2016. For the first time, Sadhguru presents Western readers with a path to achieving absolute well-being through the classical science of yoga in a practical, accessible book. It is a means to create inner situations exactly the way you want them, turning you into the architect of your own joy.

In this transformative book Sadhguru tells the story of his own awakening, from a boy with an affinity for the natural world, to a young daredevil who crossed the Indian continent on his motorcycle. He relates the moment of his enlightenment on a mountaintop in southern India, from which he emerged radically changed. Today, as the founder of Isha, he lights the path for millions. The wisdom distilled in this accessible, profound, and engaging book offers readers the opportunity to achieve nothing less than a life of joy.

“My aim in this book is to help make joy your constant companion. To make that happen, this book offers you not a sermon, but a science; not a teaching, but a technology; not a precept, but a path.”

– Sadhguru
