What Is Isha Hatha Yoga?


Isha seeks to bring back classical yoga in its purest form – not studio yoga, not book yoga or the various innovations that are brought in around the world without an understanding of the basic principles – but proper classical yoga, which is a phenomenally powerful science. It is a system that is precisely and meticulously put together as a means of reaching higher dimensions within oneself.

Isha Hatha Yoga programs are an unparalleled opportunity to learn practices derived from a yogic tradition maintained in its full purity and vibrancy for thousands of years. These practices are not taught merely for physical fitness and strength but are holistic processes of naturally achieving a certain mastery over the body and mind, so as to come to a state of health, joy, bliss, and complete inner well-being. 

Isha Hatha Yoga is currently taught in 6 different classes: Upa Yoga, Angamardana, Surya Kriya, Surya Shakti, Yogasanas and Bhuta Shuddhi.  These practices have been selected and designed by Sadhguru, a highly accomplished yogi, to bring a sense of lightness and freedom physically, psychologically, emotionally, and energetically, and are ideal for the hectic pace of today’s world.

These classes are conducted by highly trained teachers around the world offering classical Hatha Yoga in its full depth and dimension. Matt Palermo is a local Ventura County, CA area teacher who is available for private and group classes. Matt's intent is to train you in whichever class suits you best in a supportive and conducive environment, and ensure you can safely and easily perform practices on your own and receive their numerous benefits.

"Yoga is not made up of any philosophies, concepts, ideologies or belief systems. These are only methods to enhance your perception, because only what you perceive is a reality for you." -Sadhguru
