Wellness depends on the choices we make, and the only freedom we have is to choose our attitude towards life. When we adopt an attitude of acceptance, we realize how blessed we are, and then life becomes a heaven rather than a hell.

He quoted Swami Vivekananda in saying, “All souls are potentially Divine" and added that it is up to us to manifest that through an attitude of service for the society and entire humanity. Participants were treated to an interactive practice session on Yoga for Mental Health by DrMeena Ramanathan, Deputy Director, CYTER and this was followed in the afternoon by a humour filled, enlightening session by "Overcoming negative mind sets through yoga therapy" by DrKausthub Desikachar of the Krishnamacharya Healing & Yoga Foundation, Chennai.
