The Art of Living Happiness Program


Life, in its many facets of Family, job, society - demands a lot. Worries, fear and stress can be 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 tension. 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 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.

Restore life's natural rhythm of happiness with Sudarshan Kriya®

Ancient knowledge in contemporary application

The central piece of the Art of living Happiness program is a unique and profound breathing technique. A practical tool that restores body, mind and spirit into its natural rhythm of being, the Sudarshan Kriya® has positively transformed millions and millions of lives.
Its uniqueness is not only in its performance, but also in its formation as  Sri Sri Ravi Shankar emerged with the Sudarshan Kriya after a ten - day silence period.

Most body toxins are released through the breath. After having released a substantial amount of emotional and physical stress your entire perception on life can be changed.

Along with Sudarshan Kriya, other powerful breathing techniques, yoga and meditation taught in the interactive sessions of the Happiness Program is all that you need for an experience of happiness like never before.

A number of studies have appeared in independent, peer-reviewed journals that attest to the benefits reported by those who do Sudarshan Kriya.

Sudarshan Kriya, a technique taught in the Art of Living course, takes you to the deepest meditation where body, mind and breath become one rhythm, connecting to the source of life within.

    Just some of the benefits course graduates mention: "The secret lies in our own breath. Through breathing exercises, certain breathing techniques and some practice of meditation, we can rekindle positive vibrations within and around us."
