About

We have reached a significant moment in the history of humanity.

For the first time, we have the necessary capability, technology and resources to address almost every fundamental problem on this planet, including concerns about nourishment, health, education and the environment. Never before was this possible. Everything is in place, but the only thing missing is human willingness to make it happen. For this to take place, a certain inclusive consciousness is needed. Raising human consciousness in the world is the most important thing that needs to happen right now.

About the Foundation

Sadhguru founded Isha Foundation, an entirely volunteer-run international nonprofit organization dedicated to cultivating human potential. The Foundation is headquartered at Isha Yoga Center in southern India and at Isha Institute of Inner-sciences in the United States. From its powerful programs for inner transformation to its inspiring projects for society and environment, Isha activities are designed to create an inclusive culture that is the basis for global harmony and progress. This approach has gained worldwide recognition and reflects in Isha Foundation’s special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations.

With over 200 Isha Yoga Centers located around the world, seekers are offered a rare opportunity to pursue their inner journey under the guidance of a self-realized yogi. At the core of the foundation’s activities is a customized system of yoga called Isha Yoga – yoga in its full depth and dimension. Isha’s signature program, Inner Engineering, is scientifically structured to present simple but powerful processes from the yogic tradition, to transcend the limitations of who you are and bring you to higher levels of consciousness. Inner Engineering gives you the tools to create your life the way you want it.

Under the guidance of Sadhguru and driven by a sense of oneness, love, and a deep longing to reach out and share, Isha Foundation has also implemented several large-scale human service projects for rural upliftment, education reform, environmental stewardship, as well as holistic and healthy living.
