WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
Developing leaders – Transforming Society
“The YES! program has made a significant change in my life. Earlier, I would go to school grumpy and upset due to things that had occurred the day before. I wouldn't do well in school and I’d lash out at people for no reason. After I took the YES! program, I used the breathing techniques they taught me to calm myself down. I no longer was grumpy and upset, but jolly and friendly. Even my grades are higher.”
“Wards who entered the camp with their hard, angry composures and delinquent attitudes were transformed by the end of one week into happy, smiling youngsters. In the 33 years of my probation experience, I have never seen such responses.”
“Although the class has the reputation of being “not easy”, the Art of Living succeeded in bringing more peace to the class and in improving the team spirit by means of breathing techniques, yoga, group processes and play in ways that the students themselves enjoyed, as became clear afterward.”
“Being a youth, I’ve undergone so many challenges and so many times it resulted in being depressed and angry. It’s all so confusing at this age. But when I did the Sudarshan Kriya, it changed all this. Once upon a time, I would just criticize myself so much and I used to hate myself but the Kriya made me feel beautiful from inside. I, then, started loving and respecting myself. It changed my attitude towards life completely!”
