What is Isha Hatha yoga ?
Isha Hatha Yoga programs are an unparalleled opportunity to learn classical hatha yoga in its full depth and vibrancy. The programs are conducted by highly trained teachers and are not taught merely for physical fitness and strength. They are a holistic process of naturally achieving mastery over the body and mind, so as to come to a state of health, joy, and bliss. The programs are an extensive exploration of hatha yoga and revive various dimensions of this ancient science that are largely absent in the world today.
Hatha yoga is currently taught in 5 different modules: Isha Upa-Yoga, Angamardana, Surya Kriya, Yogasanas and Bhuta Shuddhi. These practices have been selected and designed by Sadhguru to develop mental clarity and focus, boost vigor and vitality, balance body chemistry, and take years off the body, bringing a sense of lightness and freedom.
The symptoms of lupus, an auto-immune disease that results in severe joint inflammations and extreme tiredness, which have tormented me for 10 years, disappeared as if by magic, telling me that there was much more to yield from this program.
The gentleness of the teachers’ instructions has helped to open a great sense of willingness within me and changed my mindset from ‘I’ll do it only if I can’ to ‘let’s try everything.’ I was able to break my limitations so easily that a feeling of joy from within has blossomed.
Through these 21 days I became so receptive that this program is without any doubt the deepest experience I have had since I have been with Isha. I am well aware of having received a wonderful gift and I am committed to explore it in depth.
From the first day I started practicing Bhuta Shuddhi, I can feel that something is changing in my body, my mind, my energies. Definitely I will do this every morning for the rest of my life.
The way they approach the asanas here is so precise. It is really like a science.
I think of all the practices, Surya Kriya is the one which I love the most. It is just the right cocktail between physical movement, pranayam, and other aspects that you feel the transformation the moment you start doing it.
The kind of flexibility and strength Angamardhana can give you, nothing else can do that. You can see amazing results in such a short period of time.
