Yoga for Modern Age

When we think of Yoga, we generally think of some old bearded yogi standing on his head, or more recently people in athletic clothing posing serenely, or a class full of people stretching on yoga mats. People who are unfamiliar with the Vedic tradition of yoga see it as an exercise program or a way to relieve stress. But actually, the meaning of yoga is far beyond any of the physical gymnastics we tend to associate with the word.

In this session, you get to know

  • Why does The deeper meaning of Yoga. Self-Confidence matter?

  • Different types of yoga systems.
  • The most feasible form of Yoga system.

The Power of Habits

Aristotle once said, ‘We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit’

We are all creatures of habit and if you make good habits, good habits will make you. Success is a result of daily habits and not of once-in-a-lifetime transformations. Learn to break free from bad habits and make new desirable habits

  • Science of Habits
  • 5 laws for habit formation
  • How to make and break habits
  • Moving from good to great – Learn some foundational habits

Science & Spirituality

From atoms to galaxies, we understand our world through Science. Science is an attempt to explain the world through observation and experiment. But many times what we observe  may not be the reality. So where can we get the most perfect knowledge of this world from? Can Science give us the perfect knowledge?

In this session, you get to know

  • Is seeing always believing?
  • Different Ways of acquiring knowledge
  • Are Science & the Vedas contradictory?
  • The most perfect source of knowledge about this world

Handling Competition

We live in a very competitive culture. Early in life, we learn to compete – with siblings, classmates, teammates , and more. As we get out into the “real world,” we relate to life as a game we’re trying to win and the people around us as our “competitors,” even if they’re the people we love and care about most.

In this session, you get to know

  • The important difference between positive competition and negative competition.
  • How to use competition in a healthy way to empower and inspire us.
  • The trap of comparison with others & how to stop the comparison game.
  • The extent to which competition is absolutely required.

The Law of Karma

Science has discovered that nature obeys laws from microscopic to macroscopic levels. Do laws also govern human nature? Have you ever wondered why someone is born rich and someone poor? Why do sometimes bad things happen to good people and good things to bad people?!


  • How Law of Karma works?
  • What is the cause of disparities in society?
  • Who is witnessing our activities?
  • Why are the ignorant not excused?
  • Three Types of Action
  • Way forward to a more responsible life.
