The IAM – Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique® (or IAM® Technique), is a powerful practice developed by Amma.
IAM® Technique is a combination of relaxing yogic stretches, breathing and concentration exercises and takes as little as 20 minutes a day. IAM® Technique helps people find fulfillment in life. Its goal is the integration of body, breath, and mind. The IAM® Technique is a suitable practice for people of all faiths; it is not bound to any religious or spiritual belief system.
There are four different types of IAM® Technique
- IAM®20 – specifically designed for working people, students, businesses and other organisations. Takes just 20 minutes a day.
- IAM®35 – advanced meditation technique for those deeply interested in spiritual practice. It takes only 35 minutes a day.
- IAM® Youth – designed for young people aged between 15 – 18, as an effective tool for personal growth and development.
- IAM® Children – a playful and simple technique that only takes 15 minutes a day. It helps children achieve a state of inner calm and improves concentration.
According to a study published in the international journal Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine (eCAM)*, people who practice the IAM® Technique experience a reduction in stress-hormones as little as 48 hours after beginning the practice. Other positive effects, including heart and respiratory-rate reduction and immunological benefits were also recorded by practitioners. In addition, a positive alteration in attitude has also been clinically observed, with practitioners of IAM responding more calmly to “stressful events” than a control group.
