 More about Art of Breathing Course
'Breath' is a prime factor for good health and the most important source of energy. But it is also the most overlooked aspect and rated much lower down in our list of priorities. Breath purifies and energises our systems and delivers subtle but very powerful energy to every single cell of our body. Come, experience and discover the secret of BREATH. Learn how to live life to its fullest potential.

And of course, Know breathKnow life!

Whether feeling happy and successful or feeling stressed out from either fear or disappointments or poor health: every participant is taken care of on the course and he or she goes back feeling lighter and also has learnt effective tools and  techniques for releasing mental and physical stresses. Thus he or she achieves improved health, enhanced energy status, greater peace of mind, deeper self-knowledge, higher awareness and abundant joy.

What you will learn on the Course?
Sudarshan Kriya ***
'Sudarshan Kriya' is the masterpiece, a jewel in the crown of all the Art of Living Courses. It is a transformational Breathing Technique which is learnt by more than 20 million people the world over. The bye-product of the course is that it integrates body-mind-spirit and thus restoring the natural harmony and hence it is also healing.

Experience Peace of Mind
Much of the stresses or limitations in life come from our own mind vacillating between regret of the past or worry about the future. And yet the present is the only place where we  experience the whole life. A remarkable feature of the course is that all the participants are able to re-discover the present moment not just as a concept but as a direct experience.

Simple Techniques for Daily Life
Participants leave with a package of simple but powerful techniques to practise at home daily. There is also the extraordinary group practice known as the weekly follow ups. They are held at various places in cities through out the world. So they will be able to remain in contact. It is specially made available for those who have already finished the course. They can join their nearest local group and refresh and reinforce their practices.
These practices are sacred treasures that have grown in value over the years enabling us to enhance its benefits and add to our continual blossoming.
