To backtrack… What is the YES+ ?

YES+ provides us with tools to manage our stress and energy levels, leading us to a more happy, fulfilled, and meaningful life. This workshop has been taught in over 100 universities around the world and at corporate institutions such as Google and the World Bank. Here’s what you’ll learn:

– Success without Stress – Think that success and stress go hand in hand? Research shows that we are more productive and creative without high levels of stress. YES+ provides empirically validated tools for decreased stress.

– Energy  – Learn unique meditation and breathing techniques to recharge and boost your efficiency.

– Focus & Relaxation  – Find out how to achieve a relaxed and focused state of mind so you can live in the present moment and get things done without the jitters

– Empowerment  – Learn how the mind works and how you can pursue your goals while being happy and fulfilled.

– Connection & Service – Make some of the most meaningful connections you’ve made on campus and understand how making a differences impacts your well-being

Excited yet?! Find out more about the course on this linked page. This semester we are having two sessions of the workshop: 12-15 October and 19-22 October.


On the volunteering end, we will going to the Moral Welfare home every first Saturday of the month. Find out the details here.

This semester, we will are not having the Yoga Jam party due to some logistical difficulties… but perhaps next semester? 🙂

Looking forward to meeting all of you and having a great time ahead this semester 🙂

YES!+ With Atika !

April 9 – 12, 2015 at Stephen Riady Centre, NUS

Atika Dhandia is not only a globe-trotting image consultant & a chic jewelry designer, she is also one of the international directors of the YES!+ ! And we had the lucky chance to have a YES!+ workshop conducted by her right here at NUS !

SoOoo much fun, energy and happyyy faces all around!! 🙂

It was a fantastic mix of meditation, SKY, yoga with games like dog-n-the-bone to go back to being child-like, delicious salads from iron chef competition, funky dancing, along with deep knowledge & self-realization.

Ruby, a PhD student, said she felt so relaxed and happy as if she had been on a long vacation !
Another participant, Chris felt happy for no reason! Nan wanted to know how soon she could train to become a teacher and spread this fantastic workshop back in her hometown in China! 🙂

Some snapshots of the lovely time we all had are available here.

The beautiful evening unfolded with blissful smiles. Adam (Our Rocking YES!+ Teacher) started off with some interesting games – a lot of running around, chasing and team work! Everyone gave their 100% and with lots of laughter

Soon after this we brushed up on 5 sutras in a very interesting way… Kudos to the organizing team for getting the sutras explained with some amazing pictures explaining the sutras.
