About the Program
As underscored by the Hon. Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, during his Sep ‘14 address at the United Nations General Assembly, yoga is an ancient technology with its roots in India. Yoga is deeply ingrained in Indian culture and has always been seen as a powerful enabler for one’s ultimate wellbeing.
The Inner Engineering program offers powerful tools derived from the yogic sciences, to achieve one’s full potential. It has been specially designed for government officials holding senior leadership positions in the central and state governments, who stand to gain enormously from the timeless wisdom woven with insights on leadership. The program has been devised by Sadhguru and is conducted by highly trained teachers. It not only empowers participants to achieve an inner balance that translates into clarity, creativity, efficiency and harmony at the workplace, but also realize their boundless potential.
The program employs a variety of methods to address every aspect of wellbeing – body, mind, emotions and energy – to establish a sense of health, joy and vibrancy.

WATCH Inner Engineering – Introduction by Sadhguru
for Andhra Govt-Glimpses
“I have never sat with such devotion for three days. We have organized many training programs and spiritual classes, but this is the one that has happened so wonderfully. I used to talk only about health and economic indicators, now we have bought happiness indicators. This is the beginning of happiness indicators. I want to wholeheartedly congratulate Sadhguru.”
Shri N Chandrababu Naidu, Hon. Chief Minister, Andhra Pradesh
“All the programs, which the DOPT has been offering through various training institutions, academies and all that, all over the country and across the world, have basically helped us in sharpening our intellect and also getting knowledge inputs. But the most important aspect of our life itself, that is, how we can improve ourselves, so that we can become better human beings and only a better human being can serve the society better. So this aspect has been completely missing in our training programs in the last half a century. Thanks to the present Government of India and the DOPT and Isha Foundation that they could think of bringing this training program, which enhances human value.”
Shri. JSV Prasad, IAS (AP, 1987)
It’s been a wonderful experience of five days. I would say experientially – I feel more joy, I feel more centered, I feel more spontaneous and I certainly feel more empowered. It has helped me to touch a core of my being in a very fundamental way. The whole experience of doing a meditative process under the guidance of Sadhguru, the whole Shambhavi kriya and the entire experience here, has really helped me to feel my inner being and I’m feeling more centered.”
Smt. Manisha Verma, IAS (MH, 1993)
This is a program that should be made mandatory for every civil servant. For one thing, it teaches you the true meaning of integrity, of what it means to do your best for everybody, in whichever job you are in. And it also gives you the discipline that you need to be able to touch other people’s lives. So it’s been a remarkably useful program.
Shri Gurucharan, IAS (KA,1982)
