According to yogic lore, Adiyogi, Shiva himself, is said to have spent time upon the Velliangiri Mountains, gracing this region with his presence many thousands of years ago. Adiyogi left behind a powerful energy palpably cascading from these mountains even today, earning this region the historic reference “The Kailash of the South.” Generations of oral history in South India detail the lives of countless legendary yogis and exuberant mystics who were drawn to the vibrant energies of these mountains. Working towards the ultimate goal of self-realization, they transcended the limitations of body and mind, and created tools for liberation. Their mystical knowledge lives on these sacred mountains peaks. At the foothills of these sacred mountains lies Isha Yoga Centre where the Isha Hata Yoga teachers have spent a substantial amount of time during their training, imbibing the quality of the space.
