About Isha Hatha Yoga
Developed by globally-renowned yogi, humanitarian and enlightened master, Sadhguru, the Isha™ Hatha School of Yoga has been established to revive the ancient science of Hatha Yoga, with programs taught to millions worldwide.
"Hatha Yoga is about creating a body which is not a hurdle in one’s life. The body becomes a stepping stone ... in one’s progress of blossoming into his ultimate possibility.”

Our staff and studio
Yoga Sadhana is founded, managed and run by Abhishek (Abhi) Guru and is the first private school in Australia to teach Isha Hatha Yoga.
Abhi undertook the internationally-renowned 1750-hour Isha Hatha Training Program in South India in 2013, wishing to bring Hatha Yoga in its full depth and profundity to an Australian audience.
Also a graduate of IIT Madras, IIM Calcutta and The University of Sydney, life has offered him a range of conventionally rewarding career pursuits that he has ignored in the pursuit of yoga. Teaching for him is neither a profession nor a hobby but an expression of a humbling and profound experience of the deeper dimensions of life that he strives to share with his students.
Since establishing Yoga Sadhana, Abhi has taught Hatha Yoga to over one thousand students across Australia and South East Asia, and featured at several international yoga festivals.
After spending 3 years as a full time volunteer at the Isha Yoga Center in India, becoming a yoga teacher was an easy choice for Ramy.
"I have met so many wonderful teachers and volunteers in my life that they left me no other choice than to become a teacher of my own. Teaching yoga for me is an offering. I have worked as a fitness professional for numerous years with adults and children of all ages. Ever since I started practising yoga I also volunteered for different kinds of programs here in Australia as well as India."
"Daily practice of yoga has changed me to my very core. Dimensions of life previously unknown to me have suddenly opened up and my life has begun to unfold in way I could never imagined. My sadhana (spiritual practices) become a priority in my life and as a consequence of that I have changed my lifestyle in order to establish greater physical, emotional and psychological balance. Longing to go beyond my current state of being had deepened. With Sadhguru grace and guidance my spiritual journey is an ever unfolding adventure."
Agnes has enjoyed her career in the advertising and media industry as a financial accountant for over 10 years. This is where her passion for yoga started. Agnes would not miss her weekly yoga class with her teacher at work. Her enthusiasm and willingness to discover more about her yoga practice grew and she was introduced to Isha Hatha Yoga and Sadhguru on a first date (from her now Husband, Ramy) in 2017.
Since then she has been devoted to her self practice and daily sadhana. Her love affair with Isha Yoga continued to blossom and the willingness to offer her life in whichever way she can led her to complete the Isha Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2018.
“When I first saw a demonstration of Surya Kriya in my first hatha yoga class, I was blown away from the grace of a simple sequence of postures and breathing pattern. It captivated me and took my breath away. Ever since, I started my daily sadhana (spiritual self practice) I have been able to find the grounding, balance, inspiration, support, guidance and grace within myself to direct my life in the most kindest and joyful way towards myself and others. Being a yoga teacher, to be able to offer classical hatha yoga to others and see how they blossom within, is such an honor and privilege”.
The Yoga Sadhana studio was established in mid 2016 as a purpose-built venue for teaching and practising Hatha Yoga, featuring beautiful cotton carpets handmade by South Indian artisans, and a shop that stocks useful yoga supplies.
Channel 7 recently interviewed and featured Yoga Sadhana on the TV show 'The House of Wellness' - for a segment titled 'The Power of Yoga'. Catch the full episode here (our studio features from 2m30s to 5m30s).

Our teaching methods
Our classes are taught with great care and precision to create a conducive atmosphere for learning the subtle science of Hatha Yoga.
Taught in an intimate group setting, classes are designed to gradually introduce students to yoga practices through verbal instruction and demonstrations. We also feature informative videos that provide intellectual insight into the processes taking place.
Unlike many modern yoga studios, we avoid playing music, using mirrors or props, talking while demonstrating, or physically touching participants during the classes. Many students comment on the depth of their experience as a direct result of this inward oriented teaching format.
