Sadhanapada at the Isha Yoga Centre in Coimbatore, India, is a seven-month residential programme for inner transformation. Whether one is looking to take a sabbatical from work, a gap year from studies, seeking spiritual growth or time away for oneself, this time at a consecrated space is an investment towards finding inner balance, clarity and intensity within oneself.
This life-transforming programme, which is offered free of cost by Sadhguru, has attracted participants from 42 different countries, making it the biggest batch with approximately 1,200 seekers, most of them being in their early 20s.
Sharing what pulled her towards Sadhanapada, Vaishali Batra (27), a successful food blogger from Delhi, said,
“My longing to participate in Sadhanapada was fuelled when the lockdown took place. I realised how sedentary lifestyle, stress and anxiety had taken oven my mind and body in the pandemic year. If I had to take charge of my life, this was the time. So overcoming all challenges, here I am to make most of this precious time.”
With an intention to imbibe the qualities of a volunteer, Vaishali said, “Sadhanapada for me is an opportunity to seek my truth, establish my sadhana, understand the true meaning of devotion and become the best conscious version of myself.”
Samuel Choi (25), former soccer player from the United States, shared that after doing the Inner Engineering programme offered by Sadhguru, something shifted in him drastically and thus began a deep spiritual longing.
After clearing several rounds to selection and an arduous 72-hour journey to India, Samuel says, “The struggle was absolutely worth it!”
Imbibing the simple culture and Satvik food offered in the ashram, and adapting to a new lifestyle that includes yogic practices and volunteering, Samuel said, “With each passing day, I can notice transformation within me. I am definitely finding myself more focused and aware. I also feel a sense of freedom that’s unmatched.”
Find clarity and stability within and enhance your capabilities. Sadhanapada offers you the tools to discover all this and more — a life-transforming programme that inspires every youth.
