"If you walk the path of Yoga, the Yoga Marga, wellbeing in its ultimate form is an assured reality." - Sadhguru

Who is Yoga Marga designed for?

Sadhguru's deep understanding of the human body and mind is the very quintessence of Yoga Marga, which is our signature program. Spread over twenty-one days, Yoga Marga is extremely intense, focused, dynamic and distinctly therapeutic in nature - especially geared towards people with chronic health conditions. However, even those in good health have found the program to be life-changing, seeing it as an opportunity to deepen their practices and bring the body and mind to a deeper level of balance, stability and harmony. The impact of the program is very individual and demands high levels of commitment and motivation, with an emphasis on process orientation and not results. This gives you an opportunity to work with your own self in a natural and non-invasive way to achieve balance.

Yoga Marga is open only to those who have been initiated into Shambhavi Mahamudra or Shoonya meditation, and who have been practicing for at least three months.

What can you expect from Yoga Marga?

Yoga Marga is meticulously customized starting with an individual medical consultation with our highly competent medical team, trained in Siddha, Ayurveda and Allopathy, and experienced in providing holistic solutions for an array of medical conditions. The team suggests specific yogic practices, Ayurvedic therapies, traditional Indian medicines, dietary regimens and therapeutic procedures, setting a course of treatment that is tailored for you. This intervention stems from a deep understanding of the human system, using traditional and holistic ways of disease mitigation.

There is an emphasis on spending time in the Dhyanalinga and Linga Bhairavi every day and taking daily dips in the energized waters of the Theerthakunds.

Yoga Marga also involves exploring nearby walking trails, a walk to a public reserve forest, recreational games and group activities and watching Sadhguru’s talks on a variety of topics on health and wellbeing. You will have an opportunity to participate in Prithvi Prema Seva, a process of consciously being in touch with Mother Earth. At the end of the program, you leave re-established in health and vitality with a deeper understanding of your body and mind. More importantly, you will be equipped with the necessary tools to move towards a way of living where health and wellbeing are natural.

Your family or caretaker can stay with you if you have opted for a single room and are not sharing accommodation with another program participant. Please note that you may not always get a room and that dining for all visitors will be in Biksha Hall at Isha Yoga Center.

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 Rejuvenation 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.
  • Once your registration is confirmed, we will send you a welcome letter with a detailed list of things to bring with you for the program, including more specific guidelines on clothing.

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. In order to get the best out of the program, it is advisable to focus your time and energies on the program itself. You can set aside some time before or after the program to engage in volunteering or other Isha Yoga Center events and activities.
