Yoga for Health and Healing
The Sanskrit meaning of the word Yoga is ‘integration’. It represents a process through which one learns how to live life in the most integrated way.
This becomes possible through a process of constant effort for identification and elimination of all the elements, which would lead to dis-integration. The health of the body and mind being the most important components of this integrated state; identification of all the elements, causing ill health techniques for neutralizing these ill effects becomes an important concern in Yoga.
Thus Yoga, viewed at one level as a science of personal growth for spiritual experience can also be viewed at therapy level as a science of Health and Healing.
