Inspired by the Yesplus program of the Intl. Assoc. of Human values (IAHV), the Yesplus at MIT club aims to make MIT stress-free through yoga and meditation. As part of our mission, we lead yoga & meditation sessions, stress management workshops, substance-free dance concerts, and community service events.
While all club members are interested in meditation, there will plenty of opportunities to enjoy nature, perform community service, or just enjoy life at MIT with other members of the club. After years of experimenting, our club has found that the most effective technique for our club is the Sudarshan Kriya breathing technique which can be learned at a Yesplus Meditation & Leadership Retreat. Most members of the club practice this technique and often practice together on the weekends.Get Notified!
