Art of Living Foundation is a volunteer-led organization dedicated to improving quality of life through the practice of yoga and meditation.
Happiness: it’s something we all long for. Relaxation: an idea we all wish to attain. But how can you achieve these two wonderful things when you aren’t sure where to start? Art of Living Foundation is committed to offering its participants serene clarity in the way of both happiness and relaxation. Through their community-centric projects and wellness programs, the Foundation aims to introduce the world to the key to positive approaches.
Art of Living Foundation is both volunteer-based, led and driven. When volunteering with Art of Living, volunteers embrace an opportunity to mutually benefit from the healing and relaxing powers of meditation and yoga practice. Here are some of the volunteer opportunities currently available within the Art of Living Foundation:
- Prisoner Rehabilitation
- Disaster & Trauma Relief
- Youth Empowerment in Schools
- Trauma and PTSD Relief for Veterans
- Environmental Sustainability
- Rural Development
- Empowering Women
This 2 to 12 month opportunity embraces the practice of yoga in a mutually beneficial partnership. The service and yoga fellowship aims to expand your mind and challenge your concepts in an effort to embrace selfless service, or seva. Participating in this volunteer program requires 35 hours of service per week and a warm willingness to contribute to what makes the Art of Living Foundation so special. Responsibilities of the Service & Yoga Fellowship participants include:
- Tending to Guest Services
- Facilities and Grounds Maintenance
- Content Development
- Community and Global Outreach
- Trails and Forestry Maintenance
- Spa Therapy

In their ‘free time,’ Service & Yoga Fellowship volunteers may embrace entertaining activities such as hiking adventures, music performances, movie nights and thought-provoking knowledge discussions. Art of Living Foundation believes that these fun activities enrich the overall experience and enjoyment of the Service & Yoga Fellowship program, overall.
Also known as the Art of Living Part 2 course, the Inward Bound volunteer opportunity is available to participants who have completed 2 months or more of the Service & Yoga Fellowship. Participants enjoy the benefits of discounted rates on the Art of Meditation program. Housing is provided in the form of shared rooms. A wholesome plant-based, vegetarian diet is also prepared daily.
