Sudarshan Kriya Yoga: Breathing For Healthy Life

Yoga, an ancient health promotive practice has been adopted as a healthy way of life across the globe. Recently, alternative medicine has adopted yoga as an approach to healthy living. The environmental pollution, eating habits, increased pace of life, sedentary lifestyle, and psychosocial disturbances have increased stress levels and their associated disorders. One of the widely recommended relaxation exercises by yogacharyas are Yogic Breathing techniques or Pranayama which are regularly practiced for relaxation, stress reduction, control of psychophysiological states, and to improve organ function. Manipulation of breath movement during pranayama, has been shown to positively affect autonomic nervous system imbalances, psychological or stress-related disorders, and immune function. Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY) is one unique, powerful yet simple form of breathing exercise that has shown favourable effects on the mind–body system. SKY technique is taught by Art of Living Foundation through its centres in more than 156 countries. Millions of people across all continents and from all walks of life have experienced the healing power of the Sudarshan Kriya Yoga. It has shown to facilitate physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. There is growing evidence that suggests, SKY can be a beneficial, safe and economical adjunct to the treatment of anxiety, stress, post-traumatic stress disorder, stress-related medical illnesses, depression, substance abuse and rehabilitation of criminal offenders. This talk gives insights about the physiological mechanisms, the mind–body connection, and the benefits of Sudarshan Kriya Yoga (SKY) in a wide range of clinical conditions.
