6. Description Abstract Here the main focus is on examining the connection between body, health and self-development and AoL/SKY practice. Respondents’ answers have highlighted this connection, and we deem it an important focus point for the rationale of SKY practice. Further, as the practitioners in AoL (especially in Norway) seem to be overwhelmingly female, we will focus on various perspectives on gender in NRMs, and in Art of Living more particularly. The authors will examine the teachings/ethos/practice of the organization for that might explain the attraction for women. The same pattern of gender distribution characterizes many other NRMs/New Age practices. Based on available material (both literature, observational and survey data) we will pay some attention to matters of power, body and sexuality, and how these are performed within this particular NRM.
