The Happiness Program combines breathing techniques, meditation, knowledge about the mind and how to manage negativity, as well as other interactive processes with ease and success in a stressful world. This course features Sudarshan Kriya™, a breathing technique that uses specific rhythms of breath to detoxify every cell of the body and infuse it with energy. These unique breathing techniques in the stress management workshops eliminate fatigue and negative emotions such as anger, frustration and depression, leaving you calm yet energized, focused yet relaxed.
Upon completion of the Happiness Program, participants learn how to incorporate Sudarshan Kriya and other breathing techniques into their daily lives. Course participants report that with regular practice (15-20 minutes a day), there is a vast improvement in energy levels, greater ease in interpersonal relationships, increased ability to work under pressure, greater joy, as well as increased creativity and mental clarity.
The Happiness Program is taught over six consecutive sessions for a total of 18-22 hours with each session lasting approximately three hours. The course format usually includes weekday evenings and two weekend mornings.
According to the science of breath, 80 to 90 percent of the toxins from the body are eliminated through the breath. The average individual uses only 35 percent of their lung capacity. A greater understanding and skillful use of breathing techniques in Los Angeles can transform one’s mental and emotional state and significantly improve the overall quality of one’s life.
A stressed mind tends to swing between future events and past actions – either in worry, anxiety, or regret. This constant vacillation creates unrest and unease in the mind and body.
The Happiness Program provides the individual with concrete tools and relaxation techniques that enable one to reduce the effects of stress on the system and function more fully in the present moment, with dynamism, peace, and joy.Register for the course
