Essence of Yoga

“If someone utters the word ‘Yoga,’ people think of impossible physical postures. This is a very distorted idea of what Yoga is. Yoga is not about bending and twisting your body or holding your breath. Yoga is a technology. If you learn to use it, it works- no matter where you come from or what you believe in or do not believe in.”

– Sadhguru

As part of the International Day of Yoga celebrations, Isha Foundation is offering free online yoga sessions throughout the month of June. Anyone without prior yoga experience can join the 45-minute guided sessions and begin their yoga journey.
