The second wave of COVID-19 has taken a heavy toll on people's lives and wellbeing. Amid a record-high spike in COVID cases, overwhelmed hospitals, there's also a shortage of oxygen as people are facing breathing difficult - a primary symptom of COVID-19. In a bid to help people improve lung capacity through breathing techniques, The Art of Living is conducting a virtual campaign for ten days.

These virtual sessions will run from 7.30 pm to 8.15 pm, starting May 1 and streamed on YouTube. They are aimed at providing spiritual and emotional comfort in these trying times. The sessions will be led by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
