Not just that you will be part the FOLK Community – a community of students pursuing and wide range of academic courses as well young professionals from varied domains, youth festivals and fun excursions.

Building Self-Confidence

Self-confidence is vital in almost every aspect of our lives, yet many people struggle to find it. Sadly, this can become a vicious cycle: people who lack self-confidence are less likely to achieve the success that could give them more confidence.

Yoga for Modern Age

When we think of Yoga, we generally think of some old bearded yogi standing on his head, or more recently people in athletic clothing posing serenely, or a class full of people stretching on yoga mats. People who are unfamiliar with the Vedic tradition of yoga see it as an exercise program or a way to relieve stress. But actually, the meaning of yoga is far beyond any of the physical gymnastics we tend to associate with the word.

The Power of Habits

Aristotle once said, ‘We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit’

We are all creatures of habit and if you make good habits, good habits will make you. Success is a result of daily habits and not of once-in-a-lifetime transformations. Learn to break free from bad habits and make new habits that are desirable

Science & Spirituality

From atoms to galaxies, we understand our world through Science. Science is an attempt to explain the world through observation and experiment. But many times what we observe  may not be the reality. So where can we get the most perfect knowledge of this world from? Can Science give us the perfect knowledge?

Handling Competition

We live in a very competitive culture. Early in life, we learn to compete – with siblings, classmates, teammates , and more. As we get out into the “real world,” we relate to life as a game we’re trying to win and the people around us as our “competitors,” even if they’re the people we love and care about most.

The Law of Karma

Science has discovered that nature obeys laws, from the microscopic level to the macroscopic level. Are human natures also governed by laws? Have you ever wondered why someone is born rich and someone poor? Why do sometimes bad things happen to good people and good things to bad people?!



How well do you _know_ your-self? Do you hear conflicting inner voices that put you into confusion?

If there's one club you want to be part of, being a youth then it is FOLK. If I look back, just the last 7 months of my involvement with FOLK has brought drastic transformations in my life.. I got clarity on the purpose of my life, I stopped eating junk food & majorly I made meditation a daily habit of my life. I'm forever indebted to FOLK MYSORE in my life and I recommend it to every body who's reading this to attend Sunday Retreat..

I can confidently say that the program "Folk" has been life-changing for me. Through this program, I have learned about spiritual concepts that I never knew existed, and it has helped me to let go a lot of bad habits that have been holding me back for years. I used to struggle with anxiety, emptiness, and poor time management but now I feel more peaceful and calm than ever before. I found something which made my life complete. The program "Folk" has a unique way of presenting spiritual concepts in a practical and relatable manner, making it easier to understand and apply in everyday life. The guidance and support provided by the program's instructors have been invaluable in my spiritual growth journey. I highly recommend the "Folk" program to anyone who is seeking a deeper understanding of spiritual concepts and wants to experience more peace, calmness, and satisfaction in their lives.
