Free relief programmes to combat COVID

The Art of Living Foundation Sri Lanka has initiated several free relief programmes to combat COVID-19 virtually, which will include a session on specific breathing techniques to improve lung capacity, building immunity and a guided meditation by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in Sinhala, Tamil and English.

The Art of Living has been helping people in their issues with stress and more with such programmes for many years now. The organisation also has been coming up with different and new exercises and sessions regularly and the most recent one is amid the coronavirus-induced lockdown in the county where many have been forced to be at home.

As wave of COVID-19 rages on, the sessions will provide the much needed spiritual and emotional comfort in these times of abject fear, grief and uncertainty, with many people having lost their near and dear to the pandemic. Last year, millions around the globe benefitted from the ‘Open up in Lockdown’ meditations with Gurudev. This year Gurudev has put together a special set of breathing exercises and meditations that will help boost lung capacity, improve immunity and provide deep relaxation to the mind. Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar said that in these challenging times, all must be brave and kept their strength and faith intact.

Three types of programmes will be offered three days. Immunity boost and Prevention Programme for normal people, Home Isolation Care Programme for the people affected by the virus and a Post COVID rehabilitation programme to get relieved from the post COVID symptoms. A regular practice can result in better health. He said that yoga postures and breathing exercise must be practiced after consulting a doctor and under the supervision of a trained teacher.
