The Sacred Grove Foundation
Centre for Exploring Consciousness & Holistic Well-being
Welcome to The Sacred Grove Foundation UK, the center of holistic well-being, officially inaugurated on June 23, 2023, following the grand unveiling of our website by the venerable SRI M on June 9, 2023.
Over the years, Sri M's efforts as a social reformer and educationist have given rise to many successful initiatives in the sectors of Education, Health & Wellness, Community Welfare, Sustainable Living, Environment, Interfaith Harmony, Peace and Exploring Consciousness.
Our Mission & Inception
The Sacred Grove Foundation UK stands as the UK wing of Sri M's global initiative to share the values of yoga and foster well-being. Our mission is clear—to guide individuals towards joy, health, and well-being through the profound practices of yoga, Ayurveda's healing therapies, and the inner peace found in meditation. Sri M's teachings serve as the key to unlocking hidden potential and living in harmony.
Embracing Spirituality in Modern Life
Acknowledging the increasing recognition of spirituality, we understand that the stress of modern life and shifting roots push more people to connect with the Spirit. The path we tread at the UK Centre is open to all who aspire to create a better life and contribute to a brighter future for humanity.
