About
Yoga is India’s gift to the world. The word yoga literally means ‘union’, union of the body, mind and soul. It is an ancient discipline that originated in India around the 6th century B.C. and was embraced by the rest of the world in the 20th century. There have been several gurus in India, who have each made a significant contribution in teaching yoga in India and abroad. Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev, simply known as Sadhguru, is one such proponent of the ancient science of yoga. Through his Isha Foundation that has over 200 centers worldwide, Sadhguru is engaged in spreading awareness about the benefits of yoga. On this half-day trip, spend some time at Isha Yoga Center, the headquarters of the Isha Foundation near Coimbatore. Highlights • 112 ft. high bust of Adiyogi • Meditation in Dhyanalinga • Calm atmosphere at the Meditation Center

Shhh...... ..no words seriously
Isha yoga center is a place where you go to receive grace. There are many courses being conducted which one may do . Or just sit in silence and declutter our inner chaos. Dhyan linga attracts you like a magnet to sit for as long as you want. Ashram is so big , one can take long walks. Bhiksha hall is for food (Prasadam) where two meals a day are served. Isha shoppe is there to buy genuine products. Canteens are there inside if in case you still want to eat besides the two meals. Once you enter the ashram premises to stay, you can’t go out for the duration of your stay to the outside world (what a blessing though) I am speechless yet wants to say so much 🙏positive vibes only😇

Serene Siva!
The Isha Yoga Center is quite close to the Coimbatore city center - around 20+ KMS. Quick drive, and you get to see the awesome Siva statue, with a picturesque background with nature, mountains and lots of land. They got ample parking space, and also provide buttermilk to escape from the sweltering heat. Not to be missed if you're visiting Coimbatore.

Dhyanalinga visit
May 2019 • Couples
Sadhguru said that Dhyanalinga is a consecrated and energised form which will remain like that forever, that kind of aroused my curiosity to visit this place.

We drove there from Bangalore on a Friday, started at 5 am in morning and reached there by 1:00 pm. Roads are excellent, so you really dont feel the strain and exhaustion. Not many restaurants on the way though except the Saravana bhavans.

Isha is a sprawling campus. You may get a little lost from where to enter, but ask people and they will guide you. They will take the keys of your car and park the car themselves.

Check in was bit confusing as there was no particular queue and you need just sit there and show up when the guy before you leaves the counter. The rooms are very good. Made of bricks, they are quite cool from inside. We stayed at Kavery complex. (Nadhi cotteges). They are very spacious too.

Food was wholesome and I liked that. They followed the timings strictly. you will be seating on the ground and have your food. There were a couple of restaurants too, should you like to have some more varieties.

Dhyanalinga entry was very well organised. You can take a dip in the pool (separate for men and women) before entering the Dhyanalinga dome. Once you enter, there were batches of 15 mins after which you can walk out. But if you want, you can remain seated and continue your meditation.

Now the point where I would like to give a feedback for improvement :

This is a huge place, but sufficient instructions are not readily available about the do and dont's and clarity on specific instructions at certain places was missing. Some places had specific instructions which if you are not aware, you may miss out. For example, nowhere it was mentioned that to take a bath, you need INR 20, so if you go there without your wallet (which I guess most of the visitors would prefer to do while strolling inside the ashram), then you would have to come back and take the money with you. Another example, there is a Nada aradhna which happens every day at the Dhyanalinga & if you want to witness that, you need to pay 700/-. Again this was not mentioned anywhere clearly, so if you are not carrying your wallet, you will miss that.

Post 9:30 PM, the security guards would push you back in your cotteges, even if you want to sit outside quietly on the ground or by the lotus pool for some more time.

My partner also gave not so good feedback about the condition of toilets near the back exit, which led to the Adiyogi statue.
Also the Chandra Kund water didnt seem to be very clean.

Barring these few points, overall the entire place is efficiently managed, and that too my volunteers who arent professionals. So full marks for that.
Most of the places were very neat and order was maintained in-spite of heavy rush of visitors.

I medidated at Dhyanalinga for some time, but no effect on me as I have not yet developed the antennae for receptiveness.

Would want to come back again later.

May 2019 • Family
We stayed at the Nalanda block. Isha has various residential buildings with different names. They call it cottages but they are actually rooms. Our room was huge, clean and comfortable with a beautiful personal balcony, even beautiful public area with great view of the mountains. I enjoyed walking the huge grounds and the lovely property. Here are some tips which will tide you over, if you are a first time visitor, or a tourist.

1. Bring a small sling bag, you can put your phone, a credit card and pls do put some cash. The cash can come in very handy when you get tired of walking and enjoy a sukku coffee at their cafeteria or get tempted to buy something from the isha gift shoppe and they have some beautiful, gorgeous stuff. Also the cash can help you to take a bullock or battery operated ride from isha centre to adiyogi grounds and enjoy the mountains and mango trees on the way.
2. Pls wear decent footwear or if you can, pls choose to walk barefoot. I had to deposit my shoes 4-5 places, but it was no problem at all. No one steals your footwear, even on a public holiday and the staff is very courteous and kind. Avoid heels , I touched 20K footsteps on my fitbit the day I was staying and I was happy. For elderly there are battery operated cars that can be requested. For younger people there are cycles at many places which can be used to go around.
3. The food--the BHIKSHA hall serves only 2 community meals a day. AT 10 and 10.45 am and at 7 or 7.45pm. The food is wholesome, healthy and awesome. For those who are in the habit of snacking or tea/coffee can visit the cafe near gift shoppe but pls remember it runs out of food after 6pm. There is a big restaurant opposite the entry snake gate of the ashram and it is open till late night.
4. Don't stick to only Dhyanlinga, kunds, adiyogi but do explore the ashram respecting their rules. I enjoyed a beautiful evening at their lotus pond. The walk to Adiyogi was full of clear skies and numerous neem and mango trees. There are coconut and palm trees everywhere outside the ashram. Try everything, breathe the clean air.If you are staying overnight, visit dhayanlinga during their evening nadha aradhana at 5.45, where they play music. I am usually not moved by meditation or spiritual practices, but I really enjoyed listening to that music in the peaceful, elliptical shrine.
5. The ashram's rooms are self service, so pls do not accept room service etc. Water filters are placed at strategic intervals and you can fill your own water. Surprisingly there are no mosquitoes even though they have 2-3 ponds and very few insects. I have stayed in various nature lodges and open land facilities but I am surprised to have no creepy crawly encounters here. Maybe it was the hot month, MAy and monsoon will be a different story all over.Carry your mosquito repellant just in case.

If you are in search of something that can change your life, just go for it. At distance of around 60 KMs from coimbatore this is that place which will change your life. Dhyanliga and Linga Bhairavi's energy is something that anyone can feel. Even an atheist also can.

Adiyogi Statue & Dhyanalinga Yogic Temple at Isha Yoga Centre- Must Visit
Jan 2019
Adiyogi Statue is located just outside Isha Yoga Centre which is about 38 kms.from Coimbatore airport. Isha Yoga centre (spread over 150 acres) is located at the foothills of the Velliangiri mountains. Adiyogi statue is about 112 ft. tall which has been recognized by the Guinness World Records as the "Largest Bust Sculpture” in the world. It is located about 1.5 km. from main gate of Isha Yoga Centre. There are bullock carts available but it is recommended to walk to reach the statue. Isha Yoga Centre is promoted by Isha Foundation, a non-profit, spiritual organization founded in 1992 by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.

We stayed for 1 day at Nalanda (4 Star hotel like room- option of A/c & non A/c rooms ). Room rate includes 2 veg. meals served at Bhiksha hall (Timings- 10 AM or 10.45 AM & 7 PM or 7.45 PM.). Meals were simple but were of high quality. Moondraam Pirai restaurant, open to public, is just outside main gate on the way to Adiyogi statue. Very good Dosa, Idly and other veg.items are available at reasonable prices. In addition, the Pepper Vine Eatery near the Dhyanalinga Yogic Temple offers a range of snacks and fruit juices.

Visited Dhyanalinga Temple for 20 mins.meditation session. Experience was fantastic. Also visited the Linga Bhairavi temple for aarti but skipped Suryakund (for men) and Chandrakund (for women). Isha Yoga Centre is very clean & peaceful. Staff & Volunteers were very friendly. Battery operated vehicles are available for all to move around various areas of the centre. Mobile phones are allowed for residents but talking loudly in common areas is discouraged. Photography is not allowed inside centre except in front of Dhyanalinga Temple & yes, at Adiyogi statue. Footwear and Mobile Phones can be deposited free at counters located at main gate, near temple etc. Free yoga courses are also available for visitors/cottage residents. Overall, must visit if you are in Coimbatore and have atleast 6 hrs.available.

Brilliant experience..
Nov 2018
This Diwali, we decided to get away from the noise and pollution, especially for my mother & daughter who are both allergic to the fumes that engulf Bangalore during these 3 days. Luckily we came to know about the Isha Yoga Center in Coimbatore, and headed there for a short break. I had booked the cottages in advance, and we decided to drive down. We started early and had a brilliant drive on the NH, passing through Salem. The roads were brilliant and thanks to Fastag we raced through the numerous toll booths as well and reached Isha center around lunch time.

We had lunch at the public restaurant, Moondram Pirai. It wasn't very good and we were apprehensive about how we would manage, but we were then informed about the Bhiksha hall where sumptuous food is served everyday for the residents. More on that later..

The Yoga center was at the foothills of the Velangiri mountain range, and the first thing that we noticed was how clean the air was, and how peaceful the whole place was. The presence of Sadhguru was felt everywhere in the ashram, even though he wasn't there physically at that time. His chants were played at many places and his videos were running in the many AV sections in the ashram.

We relaxed for a bit in our cottages and then headed out to explore the ashram. There is a huge 112 ft statue of Adiyogi just outside the ashram and we decided to pay a visit there. This statue holds the Guinness record for the world's largest bust statue and it was a magnificent sight. There were bullock carts to transport visitors to the statue, but we decided to walk instead. The statue is made of steel and is truly impressive.

We spent some time at the statue and headed back to the ashram for the evening dinner at the Bhiksha hall. The food is prepared by the volunteers and they feed all residents of the ashram four times a day (Brunch at 10 am &10.45 am, and Dinner at 7 pm and 7.45 pm). It was simple, delicious and very well organized. The entire place is silent and no instructions are given, yet everyone somehow follows the required procedures including chanting of Sahana bhavatu before eating, and washing your respective plates and tumblers after the meal. It was a lesson on how to organize large gatherings without creating a commotion around it! After dinner we retired to our rooms after a short walk since lights go off at 9.30 pm.

We started early the next day and found some peacocks at the Nalanda grounds outside the cottage to have a pleasant start to the day. We first visited the Linga Bhairavi temple for the morning aarti (quite an invigorating experience), followed by a dip in the Suryakund (for men) and Chandrakund (for women). These are pools of cool water that are very relaxing, with Shiva lingas inside the pool. While the Suryakund was very clean, the ladies found a couple of bugs in the Chandrakund unfortunately. After a dip in the pools, we visited the Dhyanalinga temple, where a large Shiva linga is located in a huge meditation hall. The pin drop silence there along with the energy emanated by the solidified mercury linga takes you to a meditative state easily and is very peaceful and energizing. We then had the brunch at the Bhiksha hall, followed by a class on Isha Kriya and Upa Yoga, which are simple exercises to initiate someone into regular yoga and meditation. The rest of the day was spent exploring the ashram and taking in the clean air and soaking in the atmosphere.
