"Health is not just being disease-free. Health is when every cell in your body is bouncing with life." - Sadhguru
Who is the Diabetes Management Program designed for?
This is an exclusive therapeutic program designed by Sadhguru to enable people with diabetes to create a basis for holistic management of their condition.
What can you expect from the Diabetes Management Program?
“In yoga, if there is diabetes, we see it as a very fundamental disturbance – diabetes is not taken lightly as a disease. We see that the fundamental structure of the basic body is being disturbed. That is why diabetes happens. And it is different in each individual. For each person, the level of disturbance and the type of disturbance that happens in each system is very different. So it needs to be handled individually. However, irrespective of what the disease is, yoga only aims at balancing and energizing or activating the energy body. The basic premise in yoga is that if your energy body is in full flow and properly balanced, there can be no chronic disease either in your physical body or your mental body. Diabetes will go because we are not treating the disease as such, we are seeing disease only as a manifestation of the disturbance that could be existing in the energy body. So if people are willing to do a certain amount of sadhana to balance and activate their energy body, they can definitely be free of all chronic ailments.” – Sadhguru
The program incorporates specific yogic practices and medical consultation with a team of highly competent doctors trained in Allopathy, Ayurveda and Siddha.

Isha Yoga is a comprehensive system derived from the ancient science of yoga to establish a deep and lasting personal transformation. It is a method of aligning your body, mind, emotions and energies to function at their peak and in complete harmony. It does not require any physical fitness or previous knowledge of yoga and is easy to integrate into any lifestyle. At Isha, yoga is taught in its full depth and dimension and communicated on an experiential level. The program includes Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya – a powerful 21-minute inner energy process that incorporates the breath. If practiced daily, it will deepen your experience of life, enabling you to explore your own self and the world with heightened perception.
Isha Health Solutions programs are a doorway to holistic living that take you beyond the conventional spa experience. They are scientifically structured and combine traditional systems of medicine, potent therapies and the sublime wisdom of ancient Indian practices. The disease-specific programs are rigorous, intense and focused, where interventions are geared towards people who have chronic health conditions. The Ayur programs are a refreshing break to those accustomed to hectic urban lifestyles and are therapeutic for day-to-day stresses.
The nearest hospital is in Coimbatore city, about one-and-a-half hours away by road. There is a small clinic on site at the Isha Yoga Center for basic medical needs and it is also equipped with an ambulance facility.
We would be happy for you to participate – however, you might face some dietary issues if you are allergic to many food substances. We will be unable to offer an individualized diet, as food in the Center is prepared in a centralized kitchen. The program diet consists of wholesome vegetarian food based on Indian cuisine, with an accent on seasonal local fruits and vegetables, nutritious whole grains, subtle spices, salads, herbal teas and tonics, fresh juices and Indian snacks and savories. Items like milk, sugar, nuts, wheat, etc. may be ingredients in side dishes. If you are okay with the above program diet, you can confidently go ahead with the registration process.
During the course of the program, you will be expected to do a reasonable amount of walking, so you should be comfortably mobile to get the best out of the program. At the moment, we regret that we are unable to make arrangements for those who are confined to a wheelchair or are unable to walk even short distances.
Yes, please bring all your regular medication with you. It is important that you continue to take it during the program, unless you have been advised otherwise following a consultation with our medical team.
There are two kinds of accommodation available – Nadi Cottages and Nalanda. The nature and intensity of the program schedule demands that you stay on the Isha Yoga Center premises, so it is not possible for you to book accommodation outside the Center and travel back and forth for the program. Even if you own accommodation on the Center premises, it is mandatory that you stay in program accommodation during the course.
- There are specific mandatory dress codes to be followed by program participants and visitors to the Isha Yoga Center. These codes have been formulated out of respect for the local culture and the monastic traditions at the Center. This will also help you experience the Center and the program in the best possible way, in terms of sitting comfortably on the floor, enhancing your receptivity to the space and dealing with the weather conditions.
- During practice sessions, you can wear long t-shirts and track pants, or salwars and kurtas. Your clothing during these sessions needs to be loose-fitting, comfortable and made of cotton. Do not wear sarees, skirts or dhotis to the practice sessions.
- During the day it is ideal to wear Indian formal clothes (gents – kurta, pyjama, pants, shirt; ladies – salwar, kurta, saris). If it is difficult for you to procure Indian clothes, you can wear loose-fitting tops that come up to mid-thighs and cover the upper arms, and loose-fitting ankle length cotton pants. You can also buy suitable clothes at the Isha Shoppe once you reach the center.

It will not be possible to volunteer or attend other programs except for Pancha Bhuta Aradhana or Pournami Pooja, which are included in the schedule of the program. The program schedules are quite intense and will not leave room for other events and activities.

You can set aside some time before or after the program to engage in volunteering or other Isha Yoga Center events and activities.
