Set at the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains, considered sacred and called the Kailash of the South, Isha Yoga attracts seekers from across the globe. Pristine hills, thick forests, an abundance of wildlife and gleaming waterfalls – the backdrop against which this centre is set is nothing short of extraordinary. The centre is a landmark in the city thanks to its 34-metre tall Adiyogi Shiva Statue that attracts a lot of visitors each year. Isha Yoga offers ‘Inner Engineering’ workshops for visitors, which involves unique meditation and yoga practices that promote inner peace and well-being. Apart from the day-to-day activities, the centre also offers monthly programmes for visitors. But, because of its popularity, accommodation at the centre is available only through prior bookings.

An authentic resort, Vaidyagrama focuses more on the healing and less on the comforts. Not for the faint-hearted, as the living conditions can be a bit overwhelming but only because the property focuses more on what matters. The village is located 20-kilometres away from the city centre, letting you wholly focus on yourself and your treatment. Simple meals and tailored treatments leave you with gratifying results.
