The IndeaYoga Philosophy

The Challenge Today

In his over two decades of teaching, Yogacharya Bharath Shetty has observed that the pursuit of happiness has led many to seek instant gratification of the senses.

Material display of wealth and the obsession with social media have become quick fix solutions to feeling happy.

Yogacharya Bharath Shetty believes that material wealth or social media in itself is not a problem.

It is the realisation that everything in life is enjoyed best with an understanding that nothing will ever provide an everlasting source of peace, happiness or contentment, that is missing.

Similarly, he notices that the focus of practicing yoga often becomes limited to the improvements at physical level and short cuts are habitually used to meet the expectations.

At IndeaYoga we invite practioners to themselves observe that when one develops the patience and determination to practice consistently and regularly, improvements in the physical body are a natural outcome.

This desire to see everyone achieve the full benefit of a holistic yogic practice gave birth to the IndeaYoga vision.

IndeaYoga - Vision

IndeaYoga - Vision Vision

IndeaYoga’s vision is 'health and bliss for all'.

"Tamaso ma jyotirgamaya" the Shanthi Mantra from the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad which translates to "lead me from darkness to inner light" is the source of IndeaYoga’s vision.

‘Indea’ is combination of two words -

In = refers to "inner" in English

Dea = is "light" in Sanskrit

When put together ‘Indea’ means ‘inner light’

‘Yoga’ personifies the journey of moving from external darkness to inner light.

This inner light guides us during our arduous journey through life.

The inner light brightens all aspects of life, driving away darkness (of ignorance) and usher in the light (of knowledge).

‘With Presence’ implies ‘being awake’, ‘living mindfully’.

Being awake’ means being in the moment; not missing life as we walk through it, being conscious of what is going on inside us, as it happens.

Learning to live mindfully with a heart that is open to all life—its pain and pleasures, ups and downs—is how we come to know real peace, happiness, and contentment.
