Jaggi Vasudev, AKA Sadhguru is an Indian yogi, mystic and New York Times bestselling author. He founded the Isha Foundation, a non-religious, non-profit organization which offers yoga programs around the world. The foundation is also involved in social outreach, education and environmental initiatives.
Isha Foundation is operated by over 7 Million volunteers from more than 300 city-based centres spread worldwide. The Foundation is headquartered at Isha Yoga Center, set at the foot of the Velliangiri Mountains in southern India, and at the Isha Institute of Inner Sciences on the magnificent Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee, USA.
Isha Yoga Center founded in 1993, hosts a series of programs to heighten self-awareness through Yoga. The foundation works in tandem with International bodies like the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and Sadhguru is a popular speaker at a number of conclaves and summits including the World Economic Forum.
Sadhguru has gained momentous popularity in the past half a decade, particularly because of his ideas on the human condition and mixing spirituality and science in even doses. He presents himself in the same contrasting way. One day you’ll find him sporting a pair of blue jeans strolling barefoot across the Himalayas, and the next you might catch him in his loincloth straddling a BMW motorbike.
Belonging to no particular tradition, Sadhguru presents his teachings in a way that is valid for contemporary life which explains his universal success.
