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?

Border Image


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.


Hatha Yoga

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.


Bhuta Shuddhi – For Kantisarovar Category Only

Bhuta Shuddhi is an ancient yogic process of purifying the 5 elements within the human system (earth, water, fire, air and space). The practice helps keep one’s system in harmony & balance and prepares one to handle powerful states of energy. It also enables one to establish physical & mental wellbeing and shapes the body & mind towards ultimate wellbeing.


Shanmukhi Mudra

Shanmukhi Mudra is a simple but subtle practice that brightens and rejuvenates the face and eyes. It brings about a state of balance leading to increased awareness and meditativeness. Benefits include improved vision and relief from ailments related to nose, ears and eyes, vertigo and tinnitus.

Some of the main benefits include:
