Sudarshan Kriya is the cornerstone of the Art of Living Course. Breath is the link between the body and mind. It is a very efficient tool for handling the mind and negative emotions. Sudarshan Kriya® incorporates specific natural rhythms of breath, which harmonize the body, mind, and emotions. This unique breathing technique helps handle stress, fatigue, and such negative emotions as anger, frustration, and depression, leaving you calm and relaxed yet energized, focused, and aware.

During this two-day course you will be introduced to the essence of Vedic sciences, learn to chant powerful mantras, and participate in various ceremonies that incorporate this ancient knowledge.
