The Scientific Benefits of Inner Engineering
What is Inner Engineering?
Designed by Sadhguru, Inner Engineering is a technology for well-being derived from the science of Yoga. It is offered as a comprehensive course for personal growth that brings about a shift in the way you perceive and experience your life, your work, and the world that you live in.
Inner Engineering offers a unique opportunity for self-exploration and transformation, leading to a life of fulfilment and joy.
The Inner Engineering Online program has been designed by Sadhguru to offer technologies of wellbeing to all. The program consists of a series of seven 90-minute sessions that can be experienced from the comfort of your own space, at your own pace.
Inner Engineering Completion includes the initiation into the ancient and powerful practice of Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya, delivered as a separate 2-day program that requires your physical presence.
Reputable scientific studies and surveys have found significant improvement in the mental and emotional state of regular Shambhavi practitioners.
Mental and Emotional Benefits
Research shows that without requiring any lifestyle changes, the practice of Shambhavi has proven to result in significantly better focus, mental clarity, higher energy levels and improved productivity.
536 Shambhavi practitioners were surveyed and testified to the kriya's impact on relieving chronic ailments such as headaches, migraines, allergies, asthma, back pain and menstrual disorders.
Improved Sleep and Relief from Insomnia
Surveys also revealed significant improvement in cases of insomnia, leading to a reduction or even elimination of medication in 40% of the cases.
Relief from Depression and Anxiety
People suffering from depression and anxiety symptoms reported a significant improvement after practicing Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya. 50% of the people surveyed said that they were able to stop taking medication for depression/anxiety after consulting with their doctor.
Relief from Menstrual Disorders
Women suffering from menstrual disorders showed significant improvement after taking up the practice of Shambhavi Mahamudra. A team from the Poole Hospitals NHS Trust, UK, and the Indiana University School of Medicine, conducted a questionnaire survey of 128 female practitioners of Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya about the prevalence of menstrual disorders before they began the kriya and after six months of practice.
Sadhguru: “Today there is enough scientific evidence to prove that when you are blissful, your mind and body function at their best. I would say most human beings are functioning at 15 to 20% of their natural capabilities. If only you could sit here in a sustained level of pleasantness, you would see that in one week you would be significantly more intelligent and sharp than the way you are right now.
As there is a science and technology to create external wellbeing, there is a whole science and technology to create inner wellbeing. This is what we are offering as Inner Engineering.”
