AdiYoga is a School for Classical Hatha Yoga. Adi means ‘original’ and Yoga means ‘union’. AdiYoga delivers classical Hatha Yoga in its full depth and dimension. It is AdiYoga’s vision to offer this ancient science in all its purity and make it available to every individual.
In the yogic tradition, the word “yoga” is only attached to a complete path which leads to self-realization. AdiYoga programs are comprehensive systems integrating the core of yogic science, unveiled for the modern human being. Our programs allow individuals to take tangible steps towards their physical, mental and spiritual growth. Designed by Sadhguru, founder of Isha Foundation, these programs are a rare opportunity for self-discovery under the guidance of a realized master.
AdiYoga teaches yoga in its full depth and dimension and communicates it on an experiential level. The programs provide methods for establishing oneself in a way of life that affirms wholeness and vitality. We also show that spiritual life does not deny worldly, social, and family responsibilities, but rather uses them as vehicles for personal growth and self-realization.
The range of regularly conducted programs involve simple postures, breathing and other powerful methods of transforming one’s energies. You do not have to be physically agile or have any previous knowledge or experience of yoga to participate in an AdiYoga program.
Tailored to suit individuals from every social and cultural background, AdiYoga provides powerful tools for inner exploration. Whatever your need may be, AdiYoga has a solution for you.
Yoga is a science. Yoga has nothing to do with any particular religion. As there are physical sciences to create external wellbeing, yoga is the science for inner wellbeing. This yogic science is of utmost importance now, like never before, because today we have tremendous power in our hands. With modern science and technology, tomorrow if we want, we can flatten a mountain or city. When we have this much power in our hands, it is very, very important that we have an inner sense, an awareness of life, and that we experience life and everyone as part of ourselves. Otherwise, we can create a calamity for ourselves and the world around us—which right now we are doing to some extent. This has happened only because we have attended only to the external science. We have never looked at the inner science within us. Just as there is an external science to create external wellbeing, there is an inner science to create inner wellbeing.
Yoga can be transmitted on many different levels. One is towards one’s physical and mental wellbeing which includes health and other aspects. Or it could be transmitted as a tool for ultimate wellbeing; in the sense, you can use this system as a stepping stone to go beyond. If you want, you can use this yoga just to get rid of your backache or you can use this yoga to get better mental focus and a little peace of mind and happiness in your life, or you can use this yoga as a way of climbing up to the highest possibility within yourself.
Using yoga just for health is not wrong, but it is a crime, because it can be a ladder to the divine. It is a way of approaching the Creator through the Creation. It can take you to places where you have never imagined. It is my wish and blessing that you should know the joy of being truly well, not just physical wellbeing, but to know and exude wellbeing in all dimensions of your existence.”
