The three-day workshop promises to dramatically change your life. A few friends who have attended the workshop are willing to vouch for it, so I am convinced. The program will holistically improve your mental and physical health through a combination of yoga, meditation, breathing techniques as well as practical knowledge sessions. Worth a try I’d say.
