B.Tech 2nd year, IIT Delhi
Amazing experience! 7 days of this course has given me a lot of important ideas and knowledge to develop myself. I have been feeling physically fit. And gained enormous confidence through kriyas we do. It’s not only me who observed the change , but many of my friends also noticed this in me. I am grateful to my friends and parents who informed me about the course. I think this course is a necessity and should be taught to all. I would love to work for Art of Living in the future.
Before doing the YES!+ course, I was a very introverted and self conscious person. I almost never participated in any extracurricular activity in IIT due to this. The YES!+ course gave me a platform for the first time to come face my fears and overcome them. After the course, I realized that I had become more comfortable in meeting new people and talking on stage. The course also helped me immensely in dealing with my friends and handling peer pressure. Unlike many of my friends at IIT, I did not get addicted to drinking, smoking, computer games and pornography. The course also helped me in handling all my commitments efficiently. I started investing my time in organizing many events in IIT rather than sitting back lazily in my room.
I did the course in Sept 2007. I had a great experience of the Yes!+ course. It opened my mind to a lot of things and possibilities like being friendly with unknown people, managing time, effective working in a team and on the whole, helped me understand myself better. Above all, it introduced me to Sudarshan Kriya - a miracle of the modern world!

2nd Year, B.Tech (Engineering Physics)
I did the YES!+ course in the last semester of the year. It helped me manage my time efficiently and be focused, calm and relaxed at the same time. After the course I transcended my shortcomings and started interacting with seniors and other batch mates more easily and thatgave me the energy and enthusiasm to take up more co-curricular activities and responsibilities and to fulfill them skillfully and in time. My relationship with my family has also improved. Apart from all this, I improved my grades and also started studying more than just regular semester courses. I have many close good friends which are like my family members now. Most importantly it gave me a wonderful opportunity to serve others and express my gratitude towards the society I'm a part of. In short, YES!+ brought Excellence in every aspect of my life!
M.Tech 2 year
I did The YES!+ course from ART OF LIVING FOUNDATION in Sept 2006.It has been the greatest thing I ever did. Coming to IIT for an M.Tech. I was really thrown into a serious mess, where I was unable to cope up with the high standards of professionalism. I was unable to perform to the best of my abilities. The atmosphere here was no doubt the best in terms of infrastructure and academics but I was feeling absolutely cornered and dejected. There seemed to be no way by which I could revert back to my happy, calm and relaxed self and as a result I could only get an SPI of 8.05. My DGPA for the B.Tech was 9.23. After doing the course, and practicing the techniques regularly, I was able to gather myself. I started feeling at home at IIT. I do not think I gave extra efforts or anything but this calm and relaxed temperament helped me to secure an SPI of 9.4 the very next semester. I never thought I would be back to my old self despite so much of prevailing competition and peer pressure. Today I am enjoying the life here in IIT and Mumbai. Thanks to YES!+.
