About Flying Elephants
A workshop designed to help you take flight with any weight.
Teen years are all about having boundless, seemingly never-ending energy. Help teach your child how to channelize that energy, into productive pursuits that will benefit them in the long run.
The Flying Elephants Workshop for Teens is fun, a 3-day, mind and brain empowerment workshop for 12 to 18 year olds. We use cutting edge techniques NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and Transactional Analysis in a fun and engaging way to prepare your teen for a successful and happy life as an adult.
If you’re wondering why your child needs a workshop to teach them how to think and behave, when you yourself didn’t need one growing up… That’s a great question.
The circumstances are different.
The rules are different.
So the instruction manual has to be different.
- The technology and the unique complications they bring with them.
- The amount of information we require them to retain and reproduce at school has quadrupled.
- The goals set for them by their parents and educators have become much more ambitious, and therefore, much more stress-inducing than ever before.
- The reported amount of stress, an average 8th grader faces in day to day life, is significantly more than their counterparts from 15 or even 10 years ago.
- The violence, gore and unpleasantness the average Indian teenager is apathetic to, would have been downright frightening to children of the same age growing up it say... the 80’s.
- None of this is their fault. This is the world we live in.
- The best gift you can give your children this summer are the skills to tackle these newfound dilemmas with grace and maturity.
- Skills we believe they will carry with them - into a well adjusted and successful adulthood

Vijay, 12th, MCTM School, Chennai
I came to my first MindFresh Flying Elephants workshop, when I was in 8th Standard. Due to the reason that I was lean and short, I had been constantly put down by people around me. I was very sad about it and so, wanted to anything possible to come out of it.
That was when I was put into this Magical workshop called Flying Elephants by my father. It was truly a life turning event for me. This workshop made my confidence level to rise, as a result of which, my grades have been only A and A+ from that time. Hence, gift your children with an experience of MindFresh and Kirtanya and you would certainly be glad for helping them fly.

With Flying Elephants, a lot of unanswered questions in my teens were answered. I was able to see the blessings that I had in my life than to complain about things that I did not have. I lost my father when I was very young, but had a mom who was strong enough to support herself and me.
Today, I am a happy teen, focusing on my strengths, concentrating on things over which I have control. I wish MindFresh had a school, where I can come fill my cup every day!

Before Flying Elephants, I was just a normal teen. I had everything, parent’s support, good school, above average performance and friends in school. Yet, I could take back something extra-ordinary from the workshop. It was the knowledge about myself, my true potential and the way to go forward.
Today, after an year of my first experience with MindFresh, I have a clear plan about the path I want to travel. I am no longer lead by chance, I have clear choices in my mind and proceed on the path of excellence.
Flying Elephants is here to empower the mind & brain of your teenager to cross through this most important and toughest period of their life. A teen who is able to pass through this phase without much damage has greater chances of success in life. Any mistake made in at this time may have an irreparable damage throughout their life.
Why should you take a chance with your teenager’s life? Why can’t we as parents go an extra mile to empower them with necessary strategies to handle life.
Take a chance to introduce them to the world of self-love and confidence.
The upper limit is 20 years. Additionally, competitive exam aspirants, UPSE, TNPSCE, Bank Exam aspirants, CA and CWA candidates can participate and benefit.
Understanding both the languages is mandatory for the registration of workshop, though proficiency is not required. If you do not know Tamil, you might need to wait for an only english workshop that is conducted once in a year.
The classes will be highly interactive, insightful, with relevant exercises, games and fun filled activities.
Making an emotional connect with your teen might work magic for the persistent problems that you have been facing with your teen!
- Age related – Issues that a typical teenager faces in terms of distractions, relationship stress, rebellious attitude, high risk adventures, etc.,
- Situation related – Tough times to overcome, like a recent death in the family, separation between parents, change of school or city etc.,
- Pregnancy related – Emotional imbalance due to excessive fear, stress, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, ADHD, etc.,
Conversely, the workshop is a must attend if your pregnancy was tough and you have passed a lot of negative emotions in your teen. Since this experience might give them a picture of what they are fighting against and the knowledge about long battle to achieve success.

Peak learning does not happen in the conventional ways. At Flying Elephants, we teach brain friendly ways of studying.

Effective ways of reading, revision, concentration are taught and the students are encouraged to test the methods during the workshop itself. Powerful and effective meditations and NLP exercises are dealt for improvement in confidence, courage and concentration.
Once a participant, who was already very successful participated in the program and made this statement. “Now I know why I am successful. It feels so nice to get know the secret and it gives me immense confidence that was not an accident, and I can replicate this success in areas in which I would not have otherwise done!”
