It equips one to handle oneself well in all life situations and learn the art of facing the dualities of life with equanimity. I believe Yoga is an excellent tool for a balanced approach to managing “Self-Organization-Society” and at WeSchool we believe in building our students as competent professionals who can transform organizations while transforming themselves.”
