Description

From the Jacket:

The ancient discipline of yoga has acquired a special relevance in the present context. The fruitless, endless pursuit of material gain in the quest for happiness has led people all over the world to seek alternative methods of healing that can bring peace of mind.

Although yoga is essentially a deeply spiritual experience, modern-day practitioners tend to promote yoga as a set of techniques that can cure specific disorders and achieve general fitness.

This book explains the origin of yoga and traces the evolution of its meaning from ancient times to the present day. It focuses on certain techniques that can treat physical ailments and create a sense of physical and mental well-being.

Introduction

Overcrowding, stress, pollution and a fast pace of life are some of the major aspects of modern times that adversely affect health and happiness of the people. This is why there has been an increasing quest for a lifestyle that reduces the adverse impact of these realities of modern life. Yoga is one of the main options that has been recommended for reducing these adverse impacts. Several studies worldwide have conclusively proven that regular and correct practice of yoga can promote health and prevent some major diseases.

Preface

This is an easy–to-read reference series put together by a team of medical experts who offer the latest perspectives on body health.

Each book in the series enhances your knowledge on a particular health issue. It makes you an active participant by giving multiple perspectives to choose from – allopathy, acupuncture, Ayurveda, homoeopathy, nature cure and unani.

This book is intended as a home adviser but does not substitute a doctor.

The opinions are those of the contributors, and the publisher holds no responsibility.

Testimonials

As ever, brilliant price and service.
Howard, UK.
The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!
Charles (Rudra)
I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
