Description
About the Book

In the last few years, the concept of yoga therapy is gaining popularity all over the world. From being a "last resort" option to be used only when all other modern systems of medicine have failed yoga is today well established as a highly effective and practical system of healing and therapy. The reason is its unique, holistic approach that addresses not the problem but the cause(s) of the problem. Sadly today, health is understood merely as a workout for physical fitness and the practice of yoga is limited to achieving the perfect posture. This limited understanding of yoga fails to consider the holistic effect of yoga on the human system.

Tkrishnamacharya made it his life's work to heal people be adapting yoga to suit their individual needs and thus maximizing the benefits they derived from it. Is little wonder then that therapy has been the primary focus at Krishnamacharya yoga Mandiram since its inception in 1976. At KYM, therapy does not stop with just helping people deal with physical illness, but extends to those seeking relief from emotional and spiritual problems as well.

This book will help the reader understand how KYM operates, through the eyes of a qualified scientific researcher. The purpose of this study is to identify and describe the processes of yoga therapy as conducted by teachers at the KYM. The data has been drawn from one-to-one interviews with the teachers. The analysis is interpretative, following the rigors of qualitative research.

Broad areas addressed in this book constitute topics such as – "Tailoring the Teaching to the Individual student", Aiming at the Mind While Dealing with the Body." "Commitment to the Lineage of T. Krishnamacharya" and "Healing through Relationship."

Teachers at the KYM, who provided the data for this study have received the teachings directly from the lineage of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar. This book provides a window into that extraordinary healing tradition as it unfolds today.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
