Traditionally, the time around Mahashivratri is considered as an auspicious time to enhance and deepen yogic practices. The Classical Yoga Workshop provides an opportunity to participate in a special yoga program and to stay in the consecrated environs of the Isha Yoga Center during Mahashivratri.
Prior participation in a basic Isha Yoga or Inner Engineering program is recommended but not mandatory.
What is this workshop about?
This year, for the first time, the program includes the Isha Dinacharya Workshop, which offers a simple, impactful daily health regimen from Siddha, Ayurveda & Yoga. Designed by Sadhguru, this workshop covers wake-up to bedtime routines such as importance of keeping the colon and other orifices clean, cleansing the skin, about consuming water and food, sleeping habits, and gives an understanding of the science behind these practices.
Besides bringing the necessary changes to the body and mind, a daily routine helps one to tune into body’s biological clock, aids in better digestion, absorption and assimilation, and takes care of the health of the bodily organs. These regimens can be easily incorporated even by those with hectic lifestyles, and have a long-lasting impact on one’s wellness, health and vitality.
The program includes a set of simple yet transformative Hatha Yoga practices, which will prepare your system to receive the most benefits on the significant night of Mahashivratri. In this program, we will be offering a specially curated selection of the following practices:
- Angamardana – a series of processes to invigorate the body and reach peak physical fitness and mental health.
- Yogasanas – a set of powerful postures to elevate one’s consciousness, stabilize one’s mind, emotions and energy system, and decelerate the aging process.
This set of practices is geared to align your system to the celestial geometry. Being in sync with the existence will naturally create a chemistry for health, joy, blissfulness, and above all, balance. Something which can be easily integrated into your daily routine, these practices will revitalize the body on all levels and enhance your energy system.
Some of the main benefits include:
- Strengthening the spine, skeletal system, and muscular system
- Relieving chronic health conditions
- Increasing flexibility and body tone
- Taking years off the body and decelerating the ageing process
Select participants (Manasarovar category) will also get a chance to participate in the Pancha Bhuta Aradhana, which happens at the Dhyanalinga with Sadhguru.
All participants can also take part in the Yaksha and Mahashivaratri celebrations. Food and stay will be provided as a part of this program during these 5 days (March 1-5, 2019).
