Breath & Mindfulness

Got your mind in pieces? Get peace of mind! 
Handling the mind and its emotions (stress, anxiety, anger, depression, etc.) through the mind is not always so obvious. However, all these emotions have a corresponding breathing pattern. When angry, depressed, nervous, our breathing gets altered in specific ways. What the great masters of yoga have known for thousands of years is that this works both ways, like a two way street. By learning specific breathing techniques (pranayama & kriya), one can eliminate all these unwanted negative emotions and reclaim mastery over their state of mind.

Join us on the internationally acclaimed Art of Happiness program offered at Om West to learn the ins and outs of living with mindfulness as well as to master these breathing techniques including pranayama and the powerfulSudarshan Kriya practice.

We accumulate toxins in our bodies due to environmental pollution, our diet, stress and anxiety and due events from the past that have left impressions in the mind. The Sudarshan Kriya practice as taught on the Art of Happiness program allows you to flush out impurities and toxins both from the body and mind leaving you feeling fresh and renewed. The course is offered by Art of Living Foundation and is taught by Om West owners Antoine and Pamela who have both been completely transformed from practising the techniques taught on this course.



Trying to meditate without proper guidance often results in people closing their eyes, not too sure what to do or expect. Their mind gets bombarded with thoughts and they generally get discouraged after a few minutes.

The Art of Meditation course offered at Om West has the answer to that. This course gives you a proper initiation with a personal mantra that will allow you to reach higher states of awareness in a simple and natural manner. This initiation is done in the great tradition of yoga masters who have kept the science a well guarded secret until very recently.

Come and discover how a meditation practice can enhance the quality of your daily life. The course is offered by Art of Living Foundation and is taught by Om West owner and certified meditation teacher Antoine who has been practising meditation daily for over 20 years.
