SKY Campus Happiness Retreat is a total well-being training offered to millions of people worldwide. Participants gain foundational stress-management skills, develop a personal evidence-based breathing and meditation practice, learn a short personal yoga practice, and increase social connection and emotional intelligence skills. SKY Breath Meditation, is an evidence-based meditation practice integrated with breath work that can significantly increase one's well-being and calmness, and significantly reduces anxiety and stress markers. The course features interactive group processes, experiential learning, emotional intelligence training, breathwork, light yoga, and evidence-based meditation.

Recent research studies evaluated by Yale University shows that SKY Breath Meditation was the most powerful and beneficial program for student mental health and well-being.
