EXISTENCE IS A FACT - LIVING IS AN ART
Life, in its many facets of Family, job, society - demands a lot. Worries, fear and stress are a natural result. We lose our inner balance, feel weak and lack energy. We stop living our lives, only to function until we are ‚out of function‘. We forget that there are some easy and very basic tools to handle stress and ten¬sion. Our own breath is a source to a healthier and happier life. There is a great secret in breath - it has an in-built ability to calm the mind, heal the body and energise the whole system within minutes!
To be able to deal with our mind and negative emotions is an art: The Art of Living.
THE ART OF BREATHING
Breath is life. The breath is with us from the beginning till the end of our life. Often the mind clings to anger, to guilt or regrets about the past, and to anxiety about the future. This oscillation of the mind between past and future creates tension and stress. Breath is the connection between body and mind and brings us to the present moment. It connects the external world of activity to the inner world of silence. The Art of Breathing course con¬sists of simple breathing techniques that help in reducing stress and also provides skills to deal effectively with challenging situ¬ations of everyday life.

PRANAYAMA: THE POWER OF THE BREATH
The breath is the most vital source of energy. Yet, it is known that we typically use only about 30% of our lung capacity. The science around pranayama, the power of breath and the right use of our breath has its roots in ancient wisdom and is still valid for this age. Get to know the breath as a purifying and empowering tool to support the overall well-being of body and mind.
Breath out stress - breath in joy for life.
One of the most comprehensive breathing techniques derived from the yogic science of breath and taught by the Art of Living Founda¬tion is the Sudarshan Kriya.
