Participant Experience

I realized the course as very good and wish it should encourage the people preferably young ones.

Tilak Raj Aggarwal

The workshop was very well designed, covering all important aspects for well being (mind & body)

Suchitra

Understanding of issues, concepts....one relates to the Tutor's words and experience. Personal attention and time were given to address the participant's problem and issues. Definitive/assured feeling of self-pride and equal hope that we can overcome our conditions. A fantastic insight into the Vedic-yogic-sattvic way of living.
