As defined by World Health Organization (WHO), health is a "State of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." With Stress becoming a ubiquitous phenomenon and non-communicable diseases on the rise, holistic techniques of Breathing, Yoga and Meditation emanating from Global Ancient Knowledge Systems (GAKS) have gained tremendous importance for their beneficial impact on human mind-body complex.

Art of Living has been widely teaching powerful Breathing, Yoga and Meditation techniques for more than 37 years around the world with millions experiencing powerful health benefits.

Research at Sri Sri Institute for Advanced Research aims to understand the impact of Global Ancient Knowledge Systems on mental and physical health and social wellbeing. We use a wide variety of assessments ranging from  psychometric to molecular and genomic analysis.

Our current research aims to assess the Impact of Breathing, Yoga and Meditation on respiratory, cardiac, gastrointestinal and nervous system. We are also working on assessing the impact on psychological wellbeing, sleep, memory and cognition.
