From "Anxious and Scattered", to "Grounded and Confident"

"Prior to learning Sudarshan Kriya, I had a hard time relaxing and breathing. I was anxious and scattered. Now that I have this practice, I am more grounded and confident in myself. I can express more love to myself and others. I'm more clear, focused and awake."

- Brittany Potier, entrepreneur 

"Much Healthier Right Away"

“I was very ill. The only thing that helped me other than allopathic medicine was pranayama. It was a complete change (after Happiness and Silence Retreat). I was much healthier right away. My mind became clear and I became more comfortable in my body. Also, people commented on my skin all the time, so I think it helped with anti-aging. That's a benefit.” 

- Patricia, retired ESL teacher, Winston, NC

Here’s Why Meditation Is So Amazing For Your Mental Health

“Impressive results"

Experience powerful shifts for less than a cup of coffee a day

A gym membership can easily cost you upwards of $650 a year.

A daily Starbucks habit? $1,100 a year or more, according to a recent study of 1,008 coffee drinkers!

How much do you invest in your peace of mind?

Your energy levels?

In giving yourself the tools you need to care for yourself, and so to have the energy to care for your family, your friends, and your work?

Now is your chance. For $190. That's less than the price of a coffee a day.

Imagine waking up each day, knowing you have a morning routine that leaves you strong, calm, and centered in minutes—with the confidence to manage change, uncertainty, and whatever comes your way.  

  • Three live online sessions with 1,000 hr certified trainers. This isn’t a faceless app or a one-way conversation.

  • Live interactions with your tribe online. 

  • Learn SKY Breathing Meditation with time and space to get your questions answered

One of the biggest illusions is that life can be controlled. And we’re so good at creating these false structures of safety and control! Through timelines, schedules, achievement, deadlines, competitions—there are so many methods we seek to control reality, holding on so tight without really realizing it.

So the current pandemic is a big shock to the system. We have to wake up to the reality of life—the only constant is change, nothing is permanent, even if we do our very best to make it appear otherwise! Fear and stress are a natural consequence of living in the illusion of control—which is where we find ourselves. That’s where we come in.

Imagine waking up each day, knowing you have a morning routine that leaves you strong, calm, and centered in minutes—with the confidence to manage change, uncertainty, and whatever comes your way.

After 39 years of dedication to the mind and the art of finding calm within, we’ve arrived at a proven formula for living with a greater sense of unshakeable ease and empowerment to live your best life.

How do you choose to live? Because it is a choice.

You cannot control what happens in life, but you can change how you react to it

You can become so centered that stresses big or small — don’t determine how you feel. 

You do.

And all it takes is some training and practice. In just a few minutes a day, you can transform how you feel in terms of your energy, your emotions and your mind

Calming an anxious, fearful, or confused mind is easy when you have the right tools 

If you’re struggling to maintain a balanced state of mind that is calm and focused, it can be hard to break the cycle. The mind can get stuck in a loop of future, fear-based worries or even past regrets, the constant bombardment of thoughts can become exhausting and spiral out of control—your mind can feel anything but relaxed and at ease.

Especially during this time, you may feel overwhelmed, stressed, or fearful. And perhaps you’ve tried to manage with one of the many options out there that provide momentary relief, but you’re still getting stuck in the same thoughts and mindstate.

Calming the mind doesn’t need to be so hard. That's where we come in.

The Online Happiness Program gives you evidence-based tools, proven to relieve, in minutes, even the busiest, most frantic of minds—with lasting energy and ease.

Why this Workshop?


"Come to Work in a Better Mindset"

“Making food that makes people happy brings me a lot of happiness. And when I come to work (after doing my practices), having already centered myself, it's way easier to plan out menus, delegate tasks to other people, or work with other people. Now I come to work in a much better mindset, and that in turn translates into the quality of work and the way I deal with people at work. Just the way I process emotions, thoughts, and feelings is different from before." 
- Dan, Boone, NC

"My Whole Personality Has Been Transformed"

“I was diagnosed with Hypertension (High BP) at the age of 19. I started practicing Sudarshan Kriya at the age of 21; now 6 years have passed and I am as normal and fit as I could have imagined. My whole personality has been transformed. I love practicing Sudarshan Kriya and Sahaj Samadhi Meditation … my innate perception of life has since turned very positive. Earlier I was not there for me - now I am there for others." 

- Abhinav Kapri

What people are saying about The Happiness Program

"It pulled me out of my depression"

“I was undergoing moderate depression. Hated eating. Couldn't focus on anything in life. Was basically in a very, very bad state of mind (depression does that) and had no idea how to get out of it. Then I took up Sudarshan Kriya. Within 1 month of Sudarshan Kriya, I was coming back up. I was returning to my usual self. My health improved considerably; I used to eat like a bird, now I eat well. I sleep better" 

"Made Me a More Confident and Social Person"

“I am practicing [Sudarshan Kriya] for 5 years now. I used to stammer a lot, but this breathing technique has a helped me to overcome the issue, and made me a more confident and social person. It has also helped me in reducing my sinus problems.”
-Prakash Porua

Boost your energy with SKY meditation

The heart of your experience will be SKY Breathing Meditation. SKY is a unique breathing practice that makes deep meditation and peace of mind available to just about anyone. 

If you can breathe, even if you have a busy mind, this practice can work for you.

Master your emotions with the Science of Breath

Stress and tension can get us down. Especially during lockdown. That’s where the breath comes in.

The mind can be all over the place. Many of us do not know how to handle our emotions. If you are depressed, then what? Anxious? Many people feel stuck and don’t know what to do, with no recourse other than to pop another prozac. How long can this last?

Similarly, just talking ourselves down doesn’t always work. Counting to 10? Just telling yourself not to be so angry? To fall asleep now?

Here the science of breath helps us a lot. The breath is related to our emotions. For every emotion, there is a particular pattern of breath. By learning to work with the rhythms of the breath, we no longer need to feel helpless or a victim to our emotions. 

We can shift our minds, become masters of our emotions and gain power over our own lives. 

By tuning the patterns of breath, you can change:

how you feel

how you think

Your energy levels

Do you like stats? Over 70 published research articles speak to the power of SKY breathing meditation.
