The Art of Living Foundation

"I found the Art of Living course very easy to practice on a regular basis and very effective. At my instance the Course was introduced at Tihar Jail, where inmates and officers have derived immense benefit by way of physical, mental, spiritual and social well being."

"Recent scientific studies indicate a close relationship between the mind, body and emotions. An agitated mind triggers chemical changes in the body that may eventually lead to many physical disorders such as heart attacks, infections, high blood pressure and even cancer. A mind, that is totally relaxed, and in the present moment is the most efficient. The Art of Living offers just that. It enables us to be fully active in the modern world while remaining joyful, enthusiastic and full of love."
-Prof. Dr. Vinod Kochupillai, Head,
Cancer Center at All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

"My name is Ava. I can say that my art of living experience has been very good. I enjoy what it does to my body and mind. I felt that with these breathing practices I see that it relaxes my body and it makes me feel like I don't have any worries.

These different types of breathing help me in many ways. Today I felt like I was at a far place, I felt at peace where nothing can bother me in any way. I Felt like my body was trembling all over, it felt like the trembling was taking all stress, worries and sadness away little by little and I can say it was a great feeling.

Now that I know how to relax my body and mind I will keep doing these breathing practices. Well, this is how I felt. I thank you both for bringing this to me through this Art of Living program."

"At first I must say I was not going to give into the weird goings on, I thought it was some type of religion. But I opened my mind up enough to find out its not. And I'm glad I did. This is only my fourth day and I don't know it all yet, but what I have learned all ready I think there are many ways to apply it to my life. All my life I have been a happy person nothing gets to me, but for the last few years I've lost that happiness but I feel just from what I have experienced the last four days this will help me get it back as well as some energy that I have never had. My name is Virgil Hoffman, Boulder County Jail, and I just want to say thank you."
