Emma Seppälä • TEDxSacramento


From "Anxious and Scattered", to "Grounded and Confident"

"Prior to learning Sudarshan Kriya, I had a hard time relaxing and breathing.  I was anxious and scattered. Now that I have this practice, I am more grounded and confident in myself. I can express more love to myself and others.  I'm more clear, focused and awake." 

- Samora S., actress

"Significantly Improved My Ability to Stay Calm"

"The main benefit is it's significantly improved my ability to stay calm when I'm stressed, tired or angry. I used to think these practices were for people who did very little, but it's the opposite. I have a lot to do and I have to be effective as a leader.  Sudarshan Kriya keeps me moving in the right direction." 

- Clarke Weatherspoon, 


"Come to Work in a Better Mindset" 

“Making food that makes people happy brings me a lot of happiness. And when I come to work (after doing my practices), having already centered myself, it's way easier to plan out menus, delegate tasks to other people, or work with other people. Now I come to work in a much better mindset, and that in turn translates into the quality of work and the way I deal with people at work. Just the way I process emotions, thoughts, and feelings is different from before."

- Dan, Boone, NC 


"My Whole Personality Has Been Transformed" 

“I was diagnosed with Hypertension (High BP) at the age of 19. I started practicing Sudarshan Kriya at the age of 21; now 6 years have passed and I am as normal and fit as I could have imagined. My whole personality has been transformed. I love practicing Sudarshan Kriya and Sahaj Samadhi Meditation … my innate perception of life has since turned very positive. Earlier I was not there for me - now I am there for others."

- Abhinav Kapr 


"Helped Heal Past Wounds"

"Learning to manage my own mind and body through breathing practices has truly been the greatest gift. Practicing Sudarshan Kriya everyday has helped me heal past wounds, become more confident in myself and more aware of everything in my life so that I can be a better me." 

- Brittany Potier, entrepreneur 

"Transformed into Newness, Aliveness, and Innocence!" 

“I had four children as a single parent. I was depressed. Medicines didn't help. After the course, I do the practice when I feel anxious, and an unpleasant emotion is washed away and I am transformed into newness, aliveness, and innocence! I am constantly in awe of the whole process and so thankful, full of gratitude that it's happening. I feel like I will find my purpose in life through this practice.“

- Lillian B., musician, artist, and writer, Smithfield, NC 

"Much Healthier Right Away" 

“I was very ill. The only thing that helped me other than allopathic medicine was pranayama. It was a complete change (after Happiness and Silence Retreat). I was much healthier right away. My mind became clear and I became more comfortable in my body. Also, people commented on my skin all the time, so I think it helped with anti-aging. That's a benefit.”

- Patricia, retired ESL teacher,  

   Winston, NC 


"Helps Me Chill Out if I'm Stressed"

"Sudarshan Kriya helps me chill out if I'm stressed, and maintain high levels of energy. Just this morning, I woke up on the wrong side of bed. So I really gave my kriya my all, and my outlook completely changed afterwards. I'm still surprised how effective it is."

- Brooks Hassig, designer, San Francisco, CA

Science has shown that upto 90% of the body’s toxins can be eliminated through the breath which leads to healthier lives

In a matter of minutes one can not only change their mental state for the positive with the breath but also increase the energy levels

The breath is also very instrumental in bringing the mind into the present moment or living in the now. This is taught on the Happiness Program and living in the moment becomes a conscious reality integrated into one’s life rather than a cliche.

The Happiness Program teaches the SKY Breathing Meditation which allows one to feel all the benefits of meditation. It is simple and focussed on rhythmic breathing which allows one to go into meditation after it is completed.

The class size can vary anywhere from 5 - 20 people

Once you come to the Program you will feel the benefits immediately. However, just like exercising where one needs to keep up with the practise to see the benefits manifest into one’s life, it is recommended that you keep up with the SKY Meditation that you learn

It is a powerful rhythmic breathing technique where one breathes in a specific guided rhythms of the breath to eliminate stress and negative emotions (like anger, fear, anxiety etc) and find deep peace within.

Over 70 independent studies have shown that symptoms of depression, anxiety, (insert relevant condition) have been reduced with the practice of SKY (Sudarshan Kriya + associated pranayamas). It’s been demonstrated that SKY significantly reduces (the ‘stress hormone’) cortisol levels.
