• The benefits of positive thoughts versus the drawbacks of negative thoughts
• Explore how your thoughts create your reality
• The importance of cultivating positive thinking to create your ideal reality
• Learn practical ways to change your thinking


When you choose your thoughts, you create your reality.
Neuroscience has proven we have the power to shape our brains and the way we think, and yogis have known this truth for thousands of years. In this much-loved course, you’ll learn practical ways to transform and enhance your own ways of thinking to live your best life possible.

At a subtle level, your thoughts are the building blocks of your health, relationships, and experiences as you move through life. Positive thoughts are energizing and facilitate growth, while negative thoughts are draining. Get rid of old, self-defeating habits. Build new discipline and strength. Return home with a new set of tools and a rejuvenated mind … and a fresh, confident outlook on life.
