  9. 9. Sorry Mr. Kipling, they indeed have! Through Yoga!
  10. 10. • This “East-West” dichotomy seems to have been overcome in recent times. • Many eastern healing traditions have slowly and steadily percolated health care systems worldwide. • This is especially true of mind– body therapies that focus on the health promotive intrinsic connections that exist between the human brain, mind, body, and individual behaviour. • Yoga is indeed all about integration!
  11. 11. National Health Service www.nhs.uk • Dozens of scientific trials of varying quality have been published on yoga. • While there's scope for more rigorous studies on its health benefits, most studies suggest yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance. • There's some evidence that regular yoga practice is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains – including lower back pain – depression and stress.

  29. 29. • Yoga aims to help regain our psycho- physiological balance, by removing the root cause of the dis-harmony. • Disassociation from inherent tendencies to identify with suffering, is Yoga! duhkha samyoga viyogam yoga samjnitham- Bhagavad-Gita VI: 23.
  30. 30. Yoga Therapy “without” Yoga Is no longer Yoga Therapy!
  31. 31. Cause of Disease According to Yoga • Primary cause – Dwaitam – duality - dichotomy • Disease = dis + ease (Asana-stira sukam and tado dwandwa anabigata) • Tri Dosha and their imbalance • Dwadasha Prana and their imbalance • Yoga Vashistha - psychosomatic and non psychosomatic disorders • Somato-psychic disorders

  34. 34. • The Pancha Klesha model of Maharishi Patanjali clearly states that the ‘root’ of all suffering (duhkha) is AVIDYA (distorted perception of reality). – tasya hetur avidya –PYS II:24 • Avidya as the root cause enables manifestation of other kleshas in dormant, attenuated, manifest or overpowering forms leading to suffering. - avidya kshetram uttaresham prasupta tanu vicchinna udaranam- Yoga Darshan II:4
  35. 35. Unless we treat the individual’s underlying psycho-somatic disassociation (dwaitham) and misconceived sense of self identify (avidya), we are not practicing Yoga Chikitsa.
  36. 36. Managing and suppressing manifest symptoms using Yoga techniques without trying to find & correct the ‘underlying’ cause is better described as YOGOPATHY! 1,2,3 1. Bhavanani AB. Are We Practicing Yoga Therapy Or Yogopathy? Integral Yoga Magazine; Fall 2009: 10-11. 2. Bhavanani AB. Are we practicing yoga therapy or yogopathy? Yoga Therapy Today 2011; 7 (2): 26-28 3. Bhavanani AB. Yoga is not an intervention, but maybe Yogopathy is. Int J Yoga 2012; 5: 157-58.
  37. 37. • As Yoga therapists, unless we aim to correct the manifest psycho-somatic disassociation as well as the underlying ignorant, distorted perception of reality in the individual, we are not practicing Yoga Chikitsa. • Yoga Chikitsa is based on salutogenesis • Yogopathy is based on pathogenesis

  41. 41. It doesn’t matter how many resources you have. If you don’t know how to use them, it will never be enough.
  42. 42. • Yogopathy, is more about "doing" than "being". • Yoga Chikitsa empowers an individual to “BE” at ease with themselves, an integrated state of coherence, their own Sukha Sthanam Some final words…….
  43. 43. • The need of the hour is for a symbiotic relationship between Yoga and modern science. • Living, human bridges combining the best of both worlds need to be cultivated. • Iti iti………….. The way forward! Some final words…….
