#IYC – Isha Yoga Center
A burgeoning yoga center at the foothills of the Velliangiri, part of the Western ghats, in Coimbatore, Isha Yoga Center (IYC) is a beauty and surprising place to visit, invest & benefit. It’s been around for 25 years, and overtly popular only for the past 10. This space has been designed under the guidance of Sadhguru and thousands of volunteers who have poured in their love, willingness & commitment towards creating an infrastructure & platform for offering technologies of self-transformation & raising human consciousness.
The tools offered are subjective, powerful & very apt for the modern man, who has forgotten to invest in the only two instruments through which he can experience life, his body & mind. Applying the tools offered by Isha Yoga upon oneself, is a direct commitment on owning up to one’s life and willing to enhance it.
It offers an unique realization in one’s life, when after all the trials & tribulations one allows himself to succumb to, and fall prey to an assumed benevolence in trying to organize one’s life excessively – one only keeps on coming back to the cyclic experience of occasional triumph followed by an expected fall. This simple realization, if kept alive & unsullied, has the possibility of invoking an inward journey of tremendous significance!
Investing is an art of getting rewarded for having an insight into something in the present, whose potential or possibility is realized only in the future, immediate or distant. Humans in general, are not good at it for the simple reason, they lack balance, to be able to perceive what is happening in the present properly, since they muddle what they want to happen, with what is already happening in the present, on the screen of their perception.
Its a continuous issue with us & we erroneously look for solutions outside of us, except within, where this distortion is occurring. Subjective tools, like what is offered at IYC, are unique investment opportunities, which opens up the dimension of proper perceiving, by raising our inner energies, where we can start seeing the mechanics of how we’re distorting our own perception, and thus benefit significantly in the way we handle the affairs of the world and regain a balance within, which helps us in experiencing life with equanimity, a remarkably big deal worth investing in! 🙂
For most successful human, who has decent food, shelter & clothing properly organized for himself, life seems stressful and complicated, an unique attribute of the modern man.
He struggles with the lopsidedness of his emotions and logic, and finds himself cornered and confronting recurring challenges, because all his ideas of organizing his life should have given him freedom and happiness he’s frantically running after, except that, it seems fleeting or outright distant, at some imaginary horizon. Since, most of us exhibit the same experience of life, it seems like a natural way of strife, which happens to everyone, except that, its a fallacy to make such an assumption, without experimenting with subjective tools of transformation. If someone has a genuine intent at scrutinizing the anomalies in his perception of life and applies the technologies offered at IYC, it is pretty much assured, this person is on his way to freedom, because he’ll start seeing the shackles he applies upon himself.
Isha Yoga Center, spanned over hundreds of acres is surrounded by one of the 18 biosphere reserves of the country, and houses a broad variety of flora & fauna.
It’s an eco-friendly space, where only electric bikes & bicycles are promoted inside, and buildings are standing on organic & natural ingredients with an abundance of beautiful trees, flower bearing plants, intricate stone work, unique architectures and subtle aesthetics, augmenting the beauty of the space.

Investing is an art, while the science of yoga offers variety of subjective tools, and us humans need to marry this art & science, to create wellbeing.
Marrying this two can also help us in arriving at a space within, where struggles can be easily mitigated by fine tuning our inner energies to bring balance & harmony towards external stimuli, rather than seeking rampant counseling, incessant bickering & gossiping, succumbing to avoidable diseases, seeking answers in tabloids or self-help gospels, dulling the mind with soap operas, venting over phone, endlessly browsing the internet, or fatally & slowly falling for destroying habits of smoking, alcohol or drugs.
