Of all the human pursuits, striving to transform oneself into a higher possibility is considered the most sacred. It is this pursuit that fulfills the purpose of the human form and it is this pursuit that brings well-being to all life. The basic purpose of Isha Foundation is to inspire, to stoke, and to nurture this innate search in every being, helping them realize the ultimate potential within.
Isha Foundation, founded by Sadhguru, is a volunteer-run, international nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating human potential. The Foundation is a human service organization that recognizes the possibility of each person to empower another – restoring global community through inspiration and individual transformation.
Isha Foundation is operated by over 2 Million volunteers from more than 150 city-based centers spread worldwide. The Foundation is headquartered at Isha Yoga Center, set at the base of the Velliangiri Mountains in southern India, and at the Isha Institute of Inner Sciences on the spectacular Cumberland Plateau in middle Tennessee, USA.
At the core of the Foundation’s activities is a customized system of yoga called Isha Yoga. Isha Yoga distills powerful, ancient yogic methods for a modern person, creating peak physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. This basis of total wellbeing accelerates inner growth, allowing each individual to tap the wealth of vibrant life within oneself. Sadhguru’s introductory program, Inner Engineering, introduces Shambhavi Maha Mudra – a simple but powerful kriya (inner energy process) for deep inner transformation.
Isha Foundation, a vibrant spiritual movement also implements several large-scale human service projects to support individual growth, revitalize the human spirit, rebuild communities, and restore the environment.
