Work Silently, Work Passionately

Satbodh Foundation, registered in 2022 under Section 8 of the Companies Act 2013, is a public charitable trust with several wings all dedicated to the cause of humanity. It works in multiple fields: yoga, meditation, Ayurveda, poverty alleviation, education, environment and women empowerment among others.

Spirit Yoga Foundation, an NGO and forerunner of Satbodh Foundation, worked for the empowerment of indigenous communities of Uttarakhand for years. Satbodh Foundation is treading the same path of service with even more zeal and vigour than before. 

Selfless service being its watchword, Satbodh Foundation principally focuses on self-sustainability of the rural community by insightful management of natural resources.

Yoga & Ayurveda

These two, combined, can ensure vigorous health- physical, mental, spiritual-of the rural people. The high-altitude regions being home to precious herbs and medicinal plants, we make the locals aware of their health utilities as home remedies for common ailments. Besides, we train them on yoga/pranayama practices which ensure unfailing health.

Social Marketing

Women Empowerment: This is crucial for village development. Women must be trained to hone their skills as part of self-sustainability projects. Churning out skilled women is key to women empowerment. As per our experiences, they are eager to learn new skills to substantially add to their families’ earnings.  We assist them as a mission.

Education & Hygiene

Unhygienic living invites diseases in the rural areas. Inculcating the value of sanitation in the rural people is a paramount need for a disease-free, healthy community. We not just instill this in them but also contribute our mite in including it in the basic education in the mountain villages.

Skill Development

We are deeply concerned over the fast-vanishing heritage craft and skill which used to previously sustain the village life economically. These indigenous arts must be revived to bring back prosperity of the village communities.  This is a crucial self-sustainability initiative for the impoverished village people.
