Isha Foundation is an entirely volunteer-run, international nonprofit organization founded by Sadhguru, dedicated to cultivating human potential and restoring global community through inspiration and individual transformation.
Sadhguru is a yogi, mystic, and visionary. Named one of India’s 50 most influential people, Sadhguru’s work has touched the lives of millions worldwide through his transformational programs.
Sadhguru has a unique ability to make the ancient yogic sciences relevant to contemporary minds. His approach does not ascribe to any belief system, but offers methods for self-transformation that are both proven and powerful.
An internationally renowned speaker, Sadhguru has been an influential voice at major global forums, including the United Nations World Headquarters and the World Economic Forum, addressing diverse issues including socioeconomic development, leadership and spirituality.
He has been invited to speak at leading educational institutions, including Oxford, London Business School, Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Wharton, and MIT. In February 2017, Sadhguru was the recipient of the Padma Vibhushan Award from the government of India, the highest annual civilian award, for exceptional and distinguished service. He has been featured in the Huffington Post, New York Times, and on CNN.
Maya Rizkallah is a full-time volunteer and trained Isha Yoga teacher with Isha Foundation. She completed her teachers training program in November 2007 and has since been facilitating Inner Engineering programs across India, the UK, Europe, Singapore, Malaysia and the United States.
Designed by Sadhguru and offered under his direct guidance, the Isha Yoga Teachers Training Programme is an intensive program that creates the necessary atmosphere for an individual to explore the deeper dimensions of Yoga.
In doing so, they become a vehicle for others to receive the tools necessary to explore their own inner transformation. Today, teachers from around the world, of all ages and background, are working with selfless commitment to offer this possibility to others.
