Happy Holidays!

In keeping with our annual tradition for Art Excel kids, on Dec. 1st we decorated a Christmas tree at the Metuchen center. As you can see from the pictures, it was loads of fun with little and big kids! There was so much enthusiasm, joy and happiness. As Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says depression can never exist when you are around kids, since their energy is very uplifting and contagious. We had holiday snacks, games and so many ornaments for the tree that the next year we will have to buy a bigger tree…

Thanks to all the parents and big kids for all their help in making this possible.

Wishing everyone happy holidays and New Year!!

Our children have innate gifts and vast potential. Art of Living‘s ART Excel course (All Round Training in Excellence) for children 8-13 years helps them realize their potential by teaching them skills for living a happy life. The course combines yoga and breathing for relieving stress with practical tips for relating to people and taking responsibility. The course is very interactive and taught mostly through games. The children learn in a way that suits their enthusiastic, lively natures. Sumathi Satish and her team organized two ART Excel courses at North Brunswick, New Jersey in January and March. Both courses were taught by Amrapalee Panchal. Here are photos by Satish Balasubramanian of Meru Designs.

To nurture happiness and resilience in our children, we teach ART Excel courses for children 8-13 years old. The ART Excel course (stands for All Round Training in Excellence) teaches a breathing technique called Sudarshan Kriya as well as yoga to eliminate stress, along with other valuable tools to manage emotions. Many of these processes are taught through games.

At the end of the course, the children act out skits to express what they have learnt, with their parents as the audience. They come up with stories based on their daily lives. Students learn to be positive, support each other and respond to bullying.  Here are some photos by Kaarthiga Shiva of a recent ART Excel course (Feb 23, 2012) at the Metuchen Art of Living center taught by Amrapalee Panchal.
