About The School
The Yog School is established in 2016 and is devoted to presenting the ancient classical hatha yoga path. The Yog School is adhering to the core Classical Hatha Yoga practices of Isha Foundation in ways that are understandable and beneficial without compromising quality or depth. Isha Hatha Yoga practices are an unparalleled opportunity to learn practices derived from a yogic tradition maintained in its full purity and vibrancy for thousands of years. The goal of our sadhana or practices is understanding the mechanics of the body, creating a certain atmosphere, and then using body postures to drive your energy in specific directions, this helps in getting the highest Joy that comes from the realization in direct experience of the centre of consciousness. The Yog School embodies the meaning of the word “Yoga” in its traditional meaning of realizing the union of the individual and the universal, rather than the revisionist meaning of Yoga as a physical fitness program.
The Yog School is aware that “Lifestyle” is a very broad subject, containing many cultural, social, and religious connotations. Here, we are not trying to suggest guidelines or rules from any particular cultural, social, or religious perspective. The suggestions of yoga are universal in nature, and can be effective for all people, regardless of backgrounds. If you consciously use your body in particular way, you can elevate your consciousness.
Today, the hatha yoga that people are learning is not in its classical form, not in its full depth and dimension. Largely the “studio yoga” that you are seeing today is unfortunately, just the physical aspect of it. History has it just teaching the physical aspect of yoga is like having a stillborn baby. It is up to no good, it’s a tragedy. If you want a live process, it needs to be taught in a certain way. That’s where The Yog School comes into picture.
Different Hatha Yoga Program are taught at The Yog School, including Upa Yoga, Angamardana, Surya Kriya, Surya Shakti, Yogasanas, Bhuta Shuddhi, Children’s Yoga, Corporate Yoga, and a few additional yoga practices in addition to Private sessions. These practices have been selected and designed by Sadhguru to develop mental clarity and focus, boost vigor and vitality, balance hormonal levels and take years off the body, bringing a sense of lightness and freedom.
These practices are taught in a program format where you will be learning a complete Hatha Yoga practice over multiple sessions and when you finish the program you will be competent enough to do the Yoga practice by yourself in the comfort of your home. The classes will be conducted by highly trained teachers and will offer classical Hatha Yoga in its full depth and dimension. They are not taught merely for physical fitness and strength. They are a holistic process of naturally achieving a certain mastery over the body and mind, so as to come to a state of health, joy, and bliss. They are ideal for the hectic pace of today’s world.
