ATB has been created and implemented in Auroville schools since 1992, by Aloka Marti and Joan Sala, based on their personal experience following the spiritual path of integral yoga and the idea of integral education. ATB is one of them, that has been developed from a close interaction with children for more than 20 years. Joan and Aloka have published a book, that has been translated into 5 languages. The programme has proven to be popular with students, and effective in attaining objectives, such as enhancing concentration, developing awareness, refining the senses, understanding and managing emotions, developing a sense of collaboration with others, and establishing a contact with the observer within.

After 3 years of study and exposure to diverse disciplines aimed at expanding consciousness, they joined Auroville, where years of research gave birth to the ATB Program in Auroville schools.
