Founded by Jessica Schmidt Harvard MBA  in 2014, Executive Sutra is here to Amplify Your Performance and Deepen Your Fulfillment.


Did you know? Gratitude meditation improves sales. Posture increases energy. Breathing tools reduce stress. Executive Sutra combines innovative techniques from Harvard Business School, neuroscience, yoga and meditation, to help executives and employees transcend the work/life balance paradigm for peak performance in all areas of life.


What is Sutra? Sutra means “thread” in Sanscrit, the language of yoga. Small segments which can be woven together or taken individually. We believe small threads of wellness techniques can be woven into the workplace, to transform our business landscape and create strong, responsible leaders who are living at their highest potential.
