I attended the Art of Living course based on a coworker's suggestion a couple weeks back. I saw the change in my coworker and thought it was worth a try. He just seems more energetic at peace and happier and claims that his wrist pains were gone. I went to the class hoping to get more energy and to cope with stress and maybe even get rid of my wrist pains.
Being a skeptic, I was waiting for a little bit until I commented on it. The 6 day course was mostly about being in the present and teaching the Sudarshan Kriya (AOL breathing / meditation). Overall it was a good experience.
They hold weekly sessions of the Sudarshan Kriya and I just got back from another session. Like last week and during the course it felt good. It feels like my mind gets a reboot (Ya, I am a geek for using this term) and I always leave the session happy and singing with the radio on the way home. I do have better energy and focus the last two weeks so I can attribute that to the course. Will have to see if I can keep this up and if the benefits keep coming.
