Isha Yoga Center is an ashram situated at the foothills of Vellaiangiri on the outskirts of Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, India. It is the headquarters for the Isha Foundation and among the top places to visit near Coimbatore.
Isha Yoga Center was founded by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev two decades ago and is administered by the Isha Foundation. Sprawling over 150 acres of lush land, the ashram is dedicated to fostering inner transformation and creating an established state of wellbeing in individuals. The large tranquil residential complex houses an active international community of Brahmacharis who are full-time volunteers. It offers all four major paths of yoga - kriya (energy), gnana (knowledge), karma (action), and bhakti (devotion), drawing people from all over the world.
The Guinness Book of World Records has declared it to be the world's largest bust sculpture. The statue is named Adiyogi, which means 'the first yogi' because Shiva is known as the originator of yoga. The height of the statue, 112 feet, symbolizes the 112 ways to attain liberation from the cycle of death and rebirth that are mentioned in yogic culture. The number also represents the 112 energy points in the human body.
The Adi Yogi Alayam and Spanda Hall is the main hall where thousands of visitors gather to learn about the science of yoga and practice accordingly. The Vanaprastha accommodation on the premises was designed to give people with families the opportunity to come and be involved with the center. This place is not religion specific, and this is well-illustrated by the huge white edifice on the outside with symbols of all religions.
