Kite Warriors has made a name for itself in the US, but the business has also made a mark on India.
It has been in business for more than 25 years and has been helping people heal their souls for more, and the latest batch of clients have been the athletes of Indian descent.
The owner of Kite, who wished to remain anonymous, has been working with athletes from the USA, Canada and the UK.
“We have been providing spiritual counselling for athletes for more 20 years now.
Many of them came to us through our websites and through our podcasts, and then we started the business in 2009,” he told NDTV.
He said that it was difficult to explain what was going on to the athletes who had no understanding of what was happening to them.
“They came to me and said, ‘Why are you doing this?’
And I said, I’m doing this because I want to help people.
But I’m also a human being, I have an understanding of human suffering, I understand the suffering that a lot of people in the world go through, so I am trying to help them.”
Kite Warriors said it had worked with some athletes who were suffering from depression and anxiety, and said that some of its clients had been on medication and had had their lives improved.
“Most of the clients we’ve been working for have had a life that was better than they had been before.
They’ve had an improved quality of life and they have achieved more,” the founder said.
The company, which started out as a meditation business, now has a network of more than 60,000 people, who have been trained through a programme run by the organisation Surya Meditation.
“The programme is free, it’s very easy, and it helps them understand how to meditate.
There are a lot more people than before,” he said.
But Kite’s business is also proving to be controversial.
A lot of Indian athletes, who are often denied medical treatment in the country due to the religious and cultural barriers, have criticised the practice, and some have even filed complaints to the Ministry of Home Affairs and the Sports Ministry.
“Kite is very controversial in the Indian sports community.
I have personally faced a lot from people who are against it.
There is also a lot against it in the USA,” the trainer said.
“I’ve also had a few people who came to the office saying they had not received any help, and that’s why they were not happy.”
Kiting has been providing support for athletes who want to come to the UK, and they also work with the athletes in their countries of birth to help in their healing.
“There are people who come here to help us with depression.
We help them with anger management.
We also help them through their recovery from drugs, alcohol and various other things.
We do not do anything against the athletes.
It is an Indian company, it is an NGO, and we are not doing anything illegal,” he added.
