Isha Kriya

Isha Kriya
is a simple yet potent practice created by Sadhguru, which is drawn from the wisdom of Indian spirituality. The word “kriya” literally means “internal action,” while “Isha” refers to that which is the source of creation. The whole purpose of Isha Kriya is to help an individual get in touch with the source of one’s existence, in order to create life according to one’s wish and vision. Provided as a free guided meditation online and available with written instructions as well, Isha Kriya offers the possibility to go beyond your limitations and live life to your fullest potential.


Isha Yoga Center

Isha Yoga Center, founded under the aegis of Isha Foundation, is located on 150 acres of lush land at the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains that are part of the Nilgiris Biosphere, a reserve forest with abundant wildlife.

Created as a powerful
(a center for inner growth), this popular destination attracts people from all parts of the world. It is unique in its offering of all aspects of yoga –
(action), kriya (energy), and
(devotion) and revives the
Guru-shishya paramparya
(the traditional method of knowledge transfer from Master to disciple).

Dhyanalinga Yogic Temple

The Dhyanalinga is a powerful and unique energy form created by Sadhguru from the essence of yogic sciences. Situated at the Isha Yoga Center, the Dhyanalinga is the first of its kind to be completed in over 2000 years. The Dhyanalinga Yogic Temple is a meditative space that does not ascribe to any particular faith or belief system nor does it require any ritual, prayer, or worship.

The Dhyanalinga was consecrated by Sadhguru after three years of an intense process of prana pratishtha. Housed within an architecturally striking pillarless dome structure, the Dhyanalinga’s energies allow even those unaware of meditation to experience a deep state of meditativeness, revealing the essential nature of life.


Isha Home School

Isha Home School, founded by Sadhguru, offers a stimulating curriculum which encourages a child’s natural curiosity and eagerness to learn. The school is affiliated to the ICSE Board for class X and to the ISC Board for the XIth and XIIth standards.

Isha Home School aims at providing high quality education in a home-like setting. The child grows up in an atmosphere where students of multiple ages live together in "houses." Each child forms a sibling-like relationship with fellow housemates and each household is headed by house-parents. Certain subjects are taught by specialists, who visit the home to give instruction. The school allows the child to progress at their own pace, while also ensuring that they are prepared for the board examinations at an appropriate age. The school does not place emphasis wholly on academic pursuits. It provides a well-balanced syllabus which gives children an opportunity to explore every aspect of themselves.


Isha Samskriti

Envisioned by Sadhguru as an offering to children, Isha Samskriti allows them to explore their innate capabilities rather than imposing merely informative education on them. Essentially rooted in the ancient Indian yogic systems and sciences, it does not propagate any particular religion, but establishes the right situation for the child to seek a deeper experience and inner understanding of the fundamentals of life.

As in the ancient Gurukulas of India, where students lived and learned in proximity of their Guru, the Isha Samskriti children grow up as an integrated part of the ashram amongst the Brahmacharis, Sanyasis and residents – all under the guidance of Sadhguru.
