The Shivanga Sadhana for Gents is a powerful 42-day vrata (period of sadhana). Offered by Sadhguru, this sadhana enhances one's receptivity to the energies of Dhyanalinga, and allows one to explore deeper levels of experience in body, mind, and energy. The sadhana is also an opportunity to make a pilgrimage to the sacred Velliangiri Mountain, and be initiated into Shiva Namaskar, a powerful practice. The sadhana starts every full moon day and culminates on the Shivratri of the next month in the Isha Yoga Center.
The Shivanga Sadhana for Ladies happens once a year, during the 21 days leading up to Thaipoosam Purnima (the full moon day in the lunar month of Thai) with a different set of practices and discipline suitable for women. This special sadhana will open one up to receive the Grace of Linga Bhairavi. The initiation starts 21 days prior to Thaipoosam, and the closing takes place at Linga Bhairavi on Thaipoosam Purnima.

“Something has changed in the physical, mental, and emotional levels, and something is happening on the energy level which I can’t describe. It’s been very supportive and uplifting, and though I have no clue what it is all about, I am enjoying it”
“There are really no words to describe the experience…Shiva is with us. It has really demolished the ego and changed the way we experience life.”
“For two years now I have been observing this process and every time I do it I feel enveloped by the grace of the Devi. The sadhana has also allowed me to embrace people and also inculcate a strong sense of determination to break barriers. I am extremely grateful to Sadhguru for this tremendous experience.”
“During the Devi Sadhana, her Grace supported me not just in daily life activities but also in my practices. The energy space around me felt like she was present all the time, sharing like a friend, protecting like a mother and guiding always.”
