We incorporate Yoga in all the activities at the Isha Centers
Yoga is a very complete and ancient practice, and although recently it has been focused mainly in the asanas (postures) and in the physical aspect, its true nature is the search for self-discovery. There are many branches of yoga: Kundalini Yoga. Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Bikram, Power Yoga, Viniyoga, Iyengar Yoga and more recently others such as Aerial Yoga. Although some of them are very different in the way they are practiced, in general, yoga is a way of liberating us from the conditioning acquired through our life experiences, which separate us from our own essence. Its main purpose is to show us who we really are.
The main purpose of the Isha Judd method is to take us to that same experience of freedom, connect us with our true nature, our consciousness, thereby liberating us from our fears and childhood programs so that we achieve unconditional love of self.
It is a self-sufficient method that does not need other practices to work, but the body awareness created by yoga, is an excellent complement for the Isha Judd method, creating a stronger connection with our physical aspect. Also, yoga emphasizes certain aspects that are parallel to the expansion of consciousness, like “ahimsa”, which means doing no harm to one-self or to others, and other concepts focussed on awareness of self, through the asanas, breath, meditative education and unity with the whole.
