Sudarshan Kriya - Benefits

Sudarshan Kriya is a simple yet powerful rhythmic breathing technique that de-stresses, and cleanses at the cellular level, and effectively draws you into a deep state of meditation.

Sudarshan Kriya and accompanying breathing practices, referred to collectively as SKY and taught through the Art of Living programs, have been found to enhance brain, hormone, immune and cardiovascular system function. Published research shows SKY significantly reduces stress, depression, anxiety and PTSD, and increases well-being both mentally and physically. Research also demonstrates that the effects of SKY reach all the way down to the molecular level, to our DNA.
