WRITTEN TESTIMONIALS


“I joined the SKY program at a time when I was really under a lot of stress. What I needed at that time in my life was relaxation of my body, but sleep was certainly not enough to help me. So when I heard of the SKY program, I decided to join tit. I had no idea what it had in store for me. During the course, I was not only taught techniques in relaxing and refreshing not just my body, but rather my whole being. It is a wonderful feeling. Another important outcome that I am grateful for, is the overall improvement in my health, which I believe result from the lifestyle changes I made after the SKY program and using the breathing techniques I was taught. The SKY program way exceeded my expectations!”

— ISAAC (PH.D. STUDENT), MAX PLANCK INSTITUTE, MUNICH INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW CENTER (MIPLC)


“My experience on SKY was wonderful and unique, almost unexplainable. The things taught made everything seem clearer, simple, and less hectic. It’s as if now I finally have the foundations to lead a great, rewarding life. The dynamism with which everything is taught helped me realize everything better, and the breathing exercises helped me relax and look at the world more clearly. This truly is a wonderful course that everyone should go through, and the cause behind it is even more amazing: TRULY making the world a better place. Thank You!”
