Isha Home School was founded in 2005 by Sadhguru. Set in the tranquil surroundings of the Isha Yoga Center at the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains, the residential school is home to students and faculty from different parts of the world. Students learn in a multi-age environment which allows them to go beyond predefined, age-specific syllabi and enhances their learning capabilities. The school’s emphasis is on integrating all aspects of life into the educational process, and its holistic and comprehensive curriculum includes art, music and drama in addition to academic subjects.

Spread across 65 acres, the school comprises three blocks: The Junior, the Middle and the Senior schools. Learning for the junior and middle school students happen within their residential blocks, a true home school process, while the senior school has a separate building for academics, the Gnana Shala.
Affiliated to the ICSE Board, the school has highly trained international professionals such as doctors, engineers, architects, chartered accountants, athletes, writers and artists, who have committed their time and talent to become teachers. What is more incredible though is the fact that they all work as full-time volunteer teachers, who have left professional jobs to dedicate themselves to this vision. Young and old, the school is a multicultural mix of students and teachers.
