On Sunday, 16 March 2014, the Society held a Health and Wellness programme at Sivanandashram, Reservoir Hills. Over 1 200 people attended this unique event, capably run by the Ashram's team of medical practitioners and devotees who serve at Sivananda Clinic in Reservoir Hills. Topics discussed included some of the common ailments prevalent in the community, and focused on a holistic wholesome lifestyle, as advocated by Sri Gurudev and Pujya Swamiji, to prevent and treat these conditions. Daily prayer and meditation, attending Satsang, Yoga Asanas and Pranayama, and a healthy sattwic diet were highlighted as some of the key ingredients for being stress-free and healthy.

Guest speaker at the programme, Dr Vijay Mittal, an Ayurvedic doctor from India with over 20 years of experience, highlighted the key elements for living a healthy life and being disease free. Attendees also visited the many stalls manned by medical practitioners of various disciplines of health including homeopathy, nature cure, reflexology, eye care, dental care, Allopathy, Ayurveda, etc.  for free advice and guidance.

In a recorded audio message delivered by Pujya Swamiji at a health workshop many years ago, Pujya Swamiji said that whilst health is important and we should spare no effort into looking after our health, more important is our spiritual wellbeing, and that more effort needs to be invested in  this area, which will in itself take care of our physical wellbeing.Doctors speaking at the programme quoted Sri Gurudev in saying that when all other pathies have failed, Namapathy, or repetition of the Divine Name, is the best remedy for illness. We thank Sri Gurudev and Pujya Swamiji for giving us an informative and enlightening programme dedicated to health, and pray that all are blessed with good health!
