The conscious one lives in close harmony with his inner self and the elements of nature.


“Ish” is the supreme power that governs the universe. Synonymous with Ishwar - ‘The Lord’. the wielder of this primordial power has been given the name Adi Yogi or Shiva in Hindu scriptures. The sacred spaces where his power manifests itself in all its resplendent glory is Ishana. CONSCIOUS LIVING


Away from the cliches of India projected to the world since long, Ishana is a hymn, a prayer to the enlightened, golden past that was steeped in the awareness of itself and of its surroundings. Conscious of what it took from the nature, conscious of what it gave back and conscious of how it made use of what it did take. Inspired from this sublime ethos, Ishana brings forth the best of ancient traditions, arts and crafts and therapies to the global audience.

In being cognizant of the immense power of Nature and its elements, Ishana celebrate the Joy of life and living in complete harmony with them and thus finding it within our own selves, as we advance on the path of becoming one with that supreme power that manifests itself in all forms. Join us on this path towards Conscious Living.


Sage Patanjali is credited with the creation of Yoga Sutra ó the treatise that elaborates Yoga as a system of mental abstraction ó a formal yoga philosophy. This treatise, more than commonly perceived postures known as Asanans; is a system for control of mind. Defined in the second sutra as an underlying foundation of his entire work is the premise:

(yogas citta-vritti-nirodha) - Yoga Sutras 1.2

Translated as 'Yoga is the inhibition of the modifications of the mind'
The Yoga Sutras are also the basis of 'Ashtanga Yoga' ("Eight-Limbed Yoga'). These Eight Limbs can be described thus:

  • Yama: Abstentions: Ahimsa (non-violence), Satya (Truth, non-lying), Asteya (non-covetousness), Brahmacharya (non-sensuality, celibacy), and Aparigraha (non-possessiveness).
  • Niyama: Observances: Shaucha (purity), Santosha (contentment), Tapas (austerity), Svadhyaya (study of the Vedic scriptures to know about God and the soul), and Ishvara-Pranidhana (surrender to God).
  • Asana: Posture: Patanjali's Sutras refers to the,* seated position used for meditation.
  • Pranayama: Suspending Breath: Prana, breath, 'Payama', to restrain or stop. Also interpreted as control of the life force.
  • Pratyahara: Abstraction: Withdrawal of the sense organs from external objects.
  • Dharana: Concentration: Fixing the attention on a single object.
  • Dhyana: Meditation: Intense contemplation of the nature of the object of meditation.
  • Samidhi: Liberation: merging consciousness with the object of meditation.

Yoga is a practical method of reaching one's potential as well as an antidote to stress and means to fulfillment. Meditation is the tool that helps 'quieting of the mind field' and thus facilitates the journey towards the final objective. Ishana's consecrated energy spaces such as the Healing Pool support introspection and bring about the feeling of upliftment.


We are what we eat. Extrapolating the same logic, we can assume that we would feel better, live longer, healthier and more productive lives if we ate good food laden with nutrients from the nature. With a wide range of foods available for our consumption, the one that is actively and enthusiastically favored over the rest by food and nutrition experts is locally grown.

A host of benefits are attributed to locally grown produce over the others. Most local foods present a wide range of choice of seasonal foods. Being seasonal, it is fresh and far more delicious and definitely more nutritious. Being locally produced, it has far less impact on the environment and a smaller carbon footprint. The chefs of the region would also know how to turn the local produce into gourmet food with their time-tested recipes, bursting with local flavor.

Greater food safety comes with knowing the origins of the food and its source. Eating fresh does away with preservatives, ripening agents and other chemical additives helping the body receive the true and natural essence and nutrition.

Slow and macrobiotic foods cooked in less oil and minimal processing provide the positive energy to the body and helps it remain healthy, attuned to nature and responsible towards the nature and environment.

A whole range of local specialties created with traditional recipes find the pride of place at Ishana.


According to Ayurveda, the three doshas or dispositions namely Vaata, Pitta and Kapha are the functional intelligences governing the body mind complex. These energies manifest in the body through their qualities, specific sites, and the active roles they play in orchestrating the processes that create and sustain the body. These energies are responsible for the things happening in the organism. Any aspect related to metabolic function and its relationship to health and disease boils down to the harmonious actions of the three doshas.

The underlying tenet of Ayurveda is to understand that any imbalance in the doshas is what really triggers the disease process. Ayurveda encourages the prevention of imbalance and restoration of balance through the management of the doshas with a natural, common sense regime that includes proper diet and lifestyle, Ayurvedic herbs and herbal preparation, as well daily healthy routines, yoga and meditation practices suited to the individual's unique constitution, Ayurvedic therapies for relaxation and rejuvenation, and Panchakarma for deep detoxification of body.

Ayurvedic theory asserts that building a healthy metabolic system, attaining good digestion and proper excretion leads to vitality. Ayurveda also focuses on exercise, yoga, and meditation for a healthy mind and body.

Two oldest forms of prevention, cure and wellbeing enable one to not just live in harmony with nature, but also help one benefit from the science of enhancing the healing and rejuvenating properties of the natural elements.

A range of these products, made in accordance with the tenets of the sacred and revered treatises on health and longevity offer the benefits of natural ingredients. Their benefits heal from within, at the cause of health issues, bring harmony between the mind, body and spirit with its holistic medicinal system. Ishana's wide range of medicine brings health and wellness to its patrons along with complementary consultation with an Ayurvedic Doctor.


The centeróstone of the practice of Ayurvedic medicine and care is Hygiene. The tenets of Ayurveda elaborated this as regular bathing, cleansing of teeth, skin care, eye cleansing and oil application. Ayurveda is the treasure trove of plant based medicines and treatments and a wide range of plant based medicines including cardamom and cinnamon are employed for the same. It also includes the practice of adding minerals like silver, copper and gold to prescriptions. This practice of adding minerals to herbal medicines was known as Rasa Shastra.

The therapeutic properties of each plant and its part are documented in Ayurveda. The treatise elaborates on the benefits of various combinations and methods of preparation of these therapeutic lotions, balms, poultices etc. Usage of various oils for consumption and anointing, smearing, head massage etc are prescribed along with their benefits for healthy living.

Ishana recognizes the benefits of the Ayurvedic system of well-being and offers a wide range of health care products prepared in accordance with the tenets of Ayurveda.

The more we make ourself sensitive and receptive of the immense positivity and energy that the subtle vehicles carry with them, mote elevated becomes out existence, gradually elevating it to the level of Conscious living. It is not just what we eat alone, but what we do and how we do it-defines our ascent to this level. Reflecting in what we wear, how we live and out actions is our thought process. In being conscious of our actions, our thoughts become more receptive of the higher energies.

Thoughtfully chosen and placed objects and artifacts, strains of mellifluous and inspiring music, purifying incense and water bodies in Ad, metals that ate good conductors of energy not only act subtly on our mental state, these draw in positivity and makes it linger around us longer, creating a connect with Nature, the sublime sources of all energies.

Staying in touch with nature isn't quite as simple as a morning walk in manicured lawns. Staying in touch with nature is being open and receptive to it. Being able to hear what it is telling you and often answering its questions, heeding its gentle reminders.
The journey begins with incorporating a bit of nature into every action and thought. Being conscious of what we do and its impact on the environment around us and giving back to the environment in every way.

Nature has the unmatched ability to restore, rejuvenate and reenergise the health and wellness of its subjects. Ancient cultures are famous for their deep and complete understanding of this healing power as well as their ability to utilize these well-kept secrets to their advantage.

Inspired and directed by traditional therapies and natural ingredients, Ishana Nature Spa offers succor and relaxation through indulgent and pure spa products and deeply rejuvenating therapies expertly imparted by trained and experienced therapists.

Touch can have healing powers and infants are introduced to touch in the form of massage right after birth. It is considered beneficial for the infants as it deepens breathing rhythm, induces relaxation, aids, digestion and stimulates the immune system. Dais (women specially trained in this art) perform this daily ritual for the babies and thus is born the relationship of touch and response that stays with the individual through a lifetime.

Traditionally, the Guru (spiritual guide) was equated to God and disciples sought his blessings, paid respects and expressed complete devotion by touching his feet. They pressed their Guru’s feet in a gentle, massage like manner to perform seva (service) and to provide him and rest and relaxation. In response, a benevolent and gracious touch of the Guru on the disciple’s forehead made him feel blessed.

At our spa, we equate our guests with God and approach them with the same reverence, respect and desire to serve. The therapies performed at Ishana are therefore not just Ayurveda on a Spa table; they are a mileu of touch and response, respect, nourishment, and desire to provide rest and relaxation to anyone who is keen to receive it.

Conscious Living is not merely living our own lives in tune with Nature, it is a wider concept which also extends to the society we live in. It encompasses being aware of our responsibilities and consciously giving back to the same, enriching lives of those around us. Ishana aims to support the under-privileged in all possible ways to help people with the basic necessities of life like food, shelter, education and health-care.

In keeping with Ishana's vision to develop a platform for the same, Ishana employs full-time professionals to further raise awareness, involvement and resources for the program. Ishana is committed towards creating a team of young Change Makers who have the passion and determination to bring about continuous change in the environment. While these Change Makers are currently engaged in the field of education, Ishana is committed to add more such Change Makers to address the areas of health and wellóbeing. Working on the principle of 'Paying it forward' this program takes care of a team of professions who go forward and positively impact the lives of the under-privileged through different programs and in varied areas of life, thus creating a multiplier effect while fulfilling Ishana's objective of inclusive and involved development.
