Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev is an author and Yogi, known for founding the Isha Foundation, which provides everyone in the world with a platform to explore their spiritual side of life by means of meditation and yoga.

Born on 3 September 1957 in Mysore, India, Jaggi Vasudev, now popularly known as Sadhguru, was born into a wealthy family. Due to his father's work, Jaggi Vasudev had his fair share of experience traveling across India, exposing him to various different people and cultures as he grew up.

Jaggi Vasudev was always attracted to the outdoors, exploring the nearby mountains and rivers whenever he got the opportunity, and one such exploration changed his life forever. A moment of peace at one of his favorite spots, the Chamundi Hills, helped him reach a meditative state where he felt so enlightened that several hours passed away in a blink of an eye, and when he returned he realized he would never be the same.

Ever since he has practiced yoga, he has learned to teach the ways of spirituality through meditation. His teachings are void of any belief system, except that a healthy mind and soul are all it takes to achieve inner peace. The Isha Foundation was founded in 1992 in Tamil Nadu, where he teaches a program called 'Inner Engineering', which includes yoga, personality development, and meditation. His followers have slowly but surely grown in number, with many people coming from all around the world to find inner peace in his teachings.
