Description

Preface

These notes are prepared with a view to give concise and at the same time very precise idea regarding the dynamic aspect of the structure and function of the human body, rather than the mere description of its anatomical and physiological features. Selectively only those points are highlighted which would contribute in better understanding of 'HOW' AND 'WHY' the various Yogic practices, affect the human body.

These notes contain also the brief summary of the research work carried out to investigate the effects of various Yogic practices over 50 yrs. at Kaivalyadhama, Lonavla as well as in other centers all over the world.

Although these notes cover a wide area, the presentation in essentially brief and up to the point. We would like to emphasize the fact that these notes cannot replace the lectures and the discussions during which further clarification, elaboration and interrelationship between various concepts could be presented.

We hope the students of Yoga would find these notes very useful for gaining an insight to the whole Yogic discipline.

Testimonials
The statues arrived yesterday. They are beautiful! Thank you!
Gregory Hancock Dance Theatre, Indiana
I have purchased several items from Exotic India: Bronze and wood statues, books and apparel. I have been very pleased with all the items. Their delivery is prompt, packaging very secure and the price reasonable.

Fotis, Greece
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
