So what exactly is the SKY Happiness Retreat?

The SKY Happiness Retreat is a 14-hour immersive, innovative life-skills training and self-development program, offered to students at more than 40 universities across the country, including Stanford, Ohio State, and MIT. Through experiential learning, students gain foundational stress-management and leadership skills, develop a personal daily breathing practice, build strategies for social connection, and engage in peer-driven service initiatives. Taught over three consecutive days, we introduce the SKY meditation technique, a scientifically validated breathing practice that significantly increases one's well-being and calmness. SKY reduces anxiety and stress markers. The SKY Happiness Retreat is one of the coolest places to connect with yourself, make awesome friends, and have FUN!

  • Help to improve quality of sleep

Below are photos from our previous workshops, benefits of SKY meditation, and testimonials.

Testimonials

“Yesplus (now SKY) made me very conscious of my thought patterns, and conscious of a sense of self that exists independent of those thoughts and different moods. It made me calmer, more reflective, more observant, and more stable–I enjoyed the course a great deal, and have found that a daily practice is something I’m relying on. (And this reading and finals period has been largely stress free, mainly because meditating removes most of that stress!)”

— SARAH, SOPHOMORE, HARVARD UNIVERSITY

 

“Alertness, creativity and efficient teamwork, I realize, are the cornerstones in contributing and getting the most from a demanding schedule at a business school. I observe that while students struggle to maintain their energy throughout the day, Yesplus practices helps me to be in “the zone”. They tremendously assist me to keep my smile throughout the day, deliver successfully and involve myself ingeniously… all without feeling a sense of stressful effort. What else can one ask for!”

— CHETAN, MANAGEMENT FELLOW AT SLOAN SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT, MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
