You have decided to make changes in your life! It’s empowering to know that you can fundamentally change who you are – physically, mentally, emotionally and on the level of your energy. Investing now can have a huge impact on your future health and happiness.
It’s one thing admitting to yourself that change is necessary. Now, admitting that to a stranger takes some courage. If you want change to happen, you’re going to have to let your guard down, and risk being exposed, and that isn’t always easy.
So, I want to reassure you. The yoga we teach comes from Sadhguru. What he stresses as the most fundamental aspects of teachers is our integrity and our commitment to our own practices.
You expect a surgeon who’s going to cut you open to have very clean hands, don’t you? With classical yoga, we can facilitate changes at the very core of who you are, and so we also need to keep working on ourselves, so that we are offering yoga to you in the purest possible way.
With this in mind, since the teacher training, which was 1,750 hours of contact time, in the Isha Yoga Centre, in southern India, I have attended each of the annual teacher upgrades in Europe, and an extra upgrade in India. These involve a week of committed yoga practice and advanced training to improve our teaching skills.
Each year, I spend around a month in India, doing yoga, volunteering and deepening my own practice. I have participated in the most advanced Isha Yoga programme, and gone to Kailash. Yoga is a subjective science, and the more I invest in my own practice, the more profoundly you will receive it.
When you come to a programme, what we want is to equip you to be able to integrate the practice into your daily life. Every care is taken to make that possible for you. That might involve several hours of preparing the room to create a conducive atmosphere. It means finding out a little about you before the programme, to ensure the practices will be appropriate, and to recommend what further programmes will be beneficial for you. These are just some examples.
Commitment and investment is not just something that I ask of you. It’s something I offer to you, because that’s the way to make deep and long-lasting changes in your life.
As a result of rising venue costs, and in an effort to maintain the highest standards in what we offer, it has become necessary to increase the financial investment from August 2018. However, everything is being done to make the programmes accessible, including offering FREE and programmes at a token amount, so that the basic tools are open to all.
As an acknowledgement of your loyalty, existing participants can continue to benefit from the old investment amounts until the end of the year, so we encourage you to register now and make use of that offer. Please enquire for the amounts.
7% of our profit is donated to Isha Foundation, which runs a variety of social outreach projects, and also offers free yoga programmes to the rural poor in India.
Existing participants will continue to benefit from one free review session for each friend who registers for Angamardana Complete programme, Surya Kriya or Yogasanas. You can even gift this to your friend, if you wish!
When you pay in advance for 2 programmes (Bhuta Shuddhi, Jala Neti, Angamardana Complete programme, Surya Kriya or Yogasanas), you can receive a 15% discount on the second programme (the one with the lower investment). Pay for 3 programmes together and receive a 25% discount on the 3rd programme (the lowest investment).
Two or more people from the same household registering for the same programme: second (and third) person receives a 10% discount.
Yes, you can use both discounts together, and get a whopping 35% reduction!
The preparations for Surya Kriya are being offered separately to the main programme, so that those already practicing Shambhavi Mahamudra Kriya do not need to repeat what they have already learnt. Similarly, for Yogasanas, there are prerequisite programmes, so those who have already learnt the preparations can enjoy more time focusing on the asanas themselves.
To ensure yoga remains accessible for everyone, we will also continue to offer exchanges of time and skills to offset the financial investment, for those who need to make use of that. This can be negotiated on an individual basis. Please don’t feel shy to request support if you need it.

We are looking into opening an option whereby you can secure a place in a programme, a number of review sessions and a number of private interactions with the teacher, which can be used over a period of 3, 6 or 9 months. This is to help those who need more support committing to the practices regularly, or to those who are new to yoga and need more time to absorb the information.
Please let us know if that option is interesting to you, as it will help us to structure the programmes.
Once you have chosen the programme you would like to attend, please register your interest by clicking on the link.
Please go through the Health Questionnaire (above) and make us aware of relevant health conditions that could indicate if a practice may not be appropriate for you, (for example hernia, recent operation, pregnancy). This will also help us to guide you about practices that could be supportive for your particular situation.
Once we have confirmed that you are eligible for the programme, you can pay via bank transfer to reserve your place. Details below. No need to write any message. We will reserve your space upon receipt of a screen shot of the transfer.
