What sets Isha Hatha Yoga apart?
Our lineage: consider what it could be like to learn Yoga from the source, say from a yogi in the Himalayas, to know that what you are receiving is authentic without any distortion. Isha Hatha Yoga is that. Our practices come from the Adiyogi and the 7 Saptarishis and were brought to the South of India by Agastya Muni, the father of South Indian mysticism.

Our programs are designed by Sadhguru the living master, yogi and mystic, and the founder of the Isha Foundation (www.isha.sadhguru.com), and are always conducted in a committed and conducive atmosphere, with meticulous attention to every aspect of the class. Isha Yoga is practised by millions around the world and its benefits have been recorded in many studies that show significant increases in concentration, mental clarity, emotional balance, energy levels, productivity, inner peace, and self-confidence.
Surya Kriya
Description of the main practice

Surya Kriya is a potent 21-step yogic practice of tremendous antiquity, designed as a holistic process for health, wellness, and complete inner well-being. It activates the solar plexus to raise the Samat Prana, or solar heat, in the system. It also balances a person's left and right energy channels, leading to stability of the body and stillness of the mind. Traditionally available only to select groups of yogis, Surya Kriya is being offered by Sadhguru as a comprehensive spiritual practice that is ideal for the hectic pace of today's world.
Benefits of Surya Kriya

Additional practices that will be taught during this retreat
  • Nadhi Shuddhi
    A Yogic practice that cleanses the nadis – the pathways through which prana (vital energy) flows – resulting in a balanced energy system and psychological well-being. It relieves anxiety, stress and psychological tension, and brings balance to your thoughts, activities and emotions, so you can enjoy a deep sense of peace throughout the day.
  • AUM chanting
    AUM chanting is a powerful practice that aligns the three fundamental aspects of the system – body, mind and energy – leading to a more profound experience of life. It helps stabilize the body and mind, thus eliminating psychological disturbances and alleviating chronic ailments. AUM chanting creates a powerful basis for further inner exploration.
  • Isha Kriya meditation
    The purpose of Isha Kriya is to help an individual get in touch with the source of his existence and to create life according to his wish and vision. Daily practice of Isha Kriya brings health, dynamism, peace and well-being. It is a powerful tool that develops mental clarity and focus and creates mental stability.

    Ašuma silent retreat
    This place, set in Lovcen National Park, is amazing. I could tell that there was a lot of thought and care put into creating it. I joined a silent retreat and it was just perfect. Accommodation is 5star glamping…all the way down to a plush robe and slippers! Food is delicious and the lounge area is comfy and peaceful. I'm ready to return! Highly recommend.

    Such an amazing place! The location is so quiet and surrounded by green, all you can hear is birds. The tents are wonderful and attention has been paid to every detail - I loved sleeping practically outside but still in a comfortable bed. Food was also healthy, local and delicious. My retreat was only for two nights but I would have happily stayed another week. Can't wait to return.

  • Maria S
    We have an amazing experience in Ashuma right now, September 2023. From the very first day being here is like to be in a fairy-tale: very special place, where natural beauty is connected with lovingly created man made space. Even the smallest details are so well thought, convenient, and ful of soothing positive energy. Tents are lovely to stay, and all other spots (yoga hall, dining area, chill out gathering space etc.) are planned and made with lots of love. Nice to touch, beautiful to see, pleasure to be. And last, but not least is a group of people who make all of this work. Their work is impeccable, they are always here for you in a very genuine, kind and delicate way! Guy, you are truly amazing! Thank you for everything you do.
