Navratri and Vijayadashami celebrations

How to look at life differently? Yoga says, there is a way of looking at life from your lower self, which is called the jeevatma, there is a way of looking at life from the higher self, called the paramatma. This shift of perception from the lower self to the higher self, will lead you from samsara to nirvana, from a sense of deficiency to a sense of sufficiency.

Through his talks, Swamiji unravels complex concepts of birth, death, karma, dharma, among others, answering some of the most profound questions of life

Principles of Healing and Growth Management

Let the sunshine back into your life. Healing requires a paradigm shift; the program works to remove hurt by enabling that shift. We, all of us, have a 'hurt' body and a 'bliss' body. Our 'hurt' body continues to get affected by the negatives that life throws our way, drawing from negative experiences to create more negativity. 

We will employ methodologies such as Yoga Nidra to address habitual patterns, deep seated hurt and insecurities.

Residential Youth Camp for Teenagers

The Young Mind has a high potential for Creativity. How can these Minds be fine-tuned towards Excellence and see a Larger Purpose.Some of the most formative years of a person’s life are between the ages of 12 to 25 years. Negative peer pressure, exam pressure, emotional turmoil from life-changing events, among many other challenges, makes this a particularly difficult period. It is also during this time that lasting impressions and belief systems are formed. We shape our world views, our approaches to problems, our personal likes and dislikes through our experiences during these years.
