TRAINING ASHRAM GURU
The teachers have been trained during an intense 21-week haha yoga teacher training by Isha Hatha Yoga School in Coimbatore, India. The training is comprised of sessions with more than 1750 hours in total which includes 10 hours of yoga practices per day, anatomy and physiology, yogic physiology, science of siddha medicine and sacred places as well as yogic principles, lifestyle and diet. During these almost five months the teachers themselves underwent a transformation which breaks limitations of their mind, body and emotions to experience what yoga in it’s ancient roots really is about.
Isha Hatha Yoga School delivers classical Hatha Yoga in its full depth and dimension. It is Sadhguru's vision to offer this ancient science in all its purity and make it available to every individual. As a step towards realizing this vision, he has devised the Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Program. In this program, Hatha Yoga will be taught as a living experience in the most beautiful ashram setting of the Isha Yoga Center, India under the grace of a living master. Upon completion of the program, trainees will have the privilege and fulfillment of bringing this knowledge to many more people.
Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru is a spiritual master with a difference. An arresting blend of profundity and pragmatism, his life and work serve as a reminder that yoga is not an esoteric discipline from an outdated past, but a contemporary science, vitally relevant to our times. Probing, passionate and provocative, insightful, logical and unfailingly witty, Sadhguru's talks have earned him the reputation of a speaker and opinion-maker of international renown. With a celebratory engagement with life on all levels, Sadhguru's areas of active involvement encompass fields as diverse as architecture and visual design, poetry and painting, ecology and horticulture, music and sports.
Sadhguru is also the founder of Isha Foundation, a non-profit organization which has been dedicated to the wellbeing of the individual and the world for the past three decades. Isha Foundation does not promote any particular ideology, religion, or race, but transmits inner sciences of universal appeal.
„When I speak, I am not giving a teaching. I am only making people thirsty to know. As knowing oneself is the fundamental and the ultimate.“ - Sadhguru
Sadhguru’s vision to transform the world has been unfolding over the past 30 years through programs designed to create an inclusive culture and establish global harmony. He established the Isha Foundation, an international non-profit service organization, through which he has offered powerful yoga programs that extend a rare opportunity for self-discovery, inner transformation, and empowerment for individuals to reach their full potential. He has initiated many large scale human service projects for rural upliftment, quality education for the poor, environmental stewardship and holistic health, which have impacted the lives of millions of people around the world, earning a special consultative status with the United Nations.
Isha Foundation is run entirely by volunteers inspired by their own personal transformation. Sadhguru has emphasized that humanity now has the necessary capability and resources to address every problem on the planet; the only missing element is willingness. Sadhguru has kindled this willingness within millions of people to extend their heads, hands, and hearts toward the betterment of humanity.
