A visually striking 30,000 square foot space, the Abode is a two-level structure housing a 21-foot statue depicting the meditative image of the Adi Yogi alongside a consecrated linga.
ADI YOGI 21-FOOT STATUE
A breathtaking 21’ metal artwork depicts the meditative image of Adi Yogi, the first yogi, who offered the methods and science of Yoga as practiced by millions around the world today.
ENERGIZED COPPER FORM (LINGA)
Every form and shape has its own vibrance and quality about it. This ellipsoid or linga can be energized in various ways to bring different types of wellbeing to humanity. At the Abode, the linga is submerged in water and all visitors have the opportunity to touch the form and connect with the energy that it radiates.
FIVE ELEMENTS YANTRA
The most fundamental aspect of yoga is Bhuta Shuddhi – that means cleansing of the five elements that make up our physical existence and the planet we live on: Earth, Water, Wind, Fire and Space. Visitors to the Abode can make use of this deeply purifying science for their well-being. At the Abode, experience the one-of-a-kind artisan copper-work that depicts the five elements and fundamental mantras, which surround the energy form.
View exquisite and unique paintings depicting stories from the life of Adi Yogi — one as a man, another as a yogi, an ascetic and a Guru. Spanning the length of the walls inside the Abode, these stories offer inspiration for all and celebrate the significance of the Adi Yogi.
Experiencing the benefits of the Abode does not require any prayer or worship. Visitors can connect with the energies of the space by simply sitting, doing yogic practices, or through several offerings and processes.
As life is just energy manifested itself in various forms, a whole science of consecration is also about using these life energies and the manifested forms which could be of immense benefit and serve human well-being on various dimensions.
Sadhguru established the Abode of Yoga through the potent and ancient process of consecration over the process of three days in September of 2015.

HISTORY OF CONSECRATED SPACES
Over 15,000 years ago, Adi Yogi guided seven determined seekers, known as the saptarishis – the “seven sages,” in imparting the science of yoga. He taught them the very nature and mechanics of the human system, and illustrated seven different ways to approach this great knowledge.
