Rudyard Kipling
Sorry Mr. Kipling,
they indeed have!
Through Yoga!
• 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!
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.

Yoga therapy nests
inside the larger
Yoga & is
therefore
neither separate
from nor greater
than Yoga.
Yoga and Yoga Therapy
Yoga therapy is the professional
application of the principles & practices
of yoga to promote health and well-
being within a therapeutic relationship
that includes personalized assessment,
goal setting, lifestyle management, and
yoga practices for individuals or small
groups. - IAYT 2020
Salutogenesis
• Derivation of Greek + Latin
–Latin: salus = health
–Greek: genesis = source
• In combination = Sources of health
SALUTOGENESIS versus PATHOGENESIS…
Pathogenesis
• What causes diseases?
• About avoiding problems
•Reactive - absence disease
• Against pain or loss
• Enables survival of species
Salutogenesis
• What causes health?
• About reaching potential
• Proactive - presence health
• For gain or growth
• Discover how to live fully
Health, a dynamic state
• Health is seen as a dynamic movement in a
continuum between total ill-health & total
health

Stress management through Yoga
• Dr W Selvamurthy, one of India’s
greatest scientists said:
Yoga enables and empowers
individuals to
– Modify their perceptions of the stressors,
– Optimise their responses to them, and
– Efficiently release the pent up stresses.
• We can think of it as a 3-in-1 action!!

“The treatment of the
part shouldn’t be
attempted without a
treatment of the entirety.
The treatment of the
body without treating
the mind and soul is a
useless waste of time”

Relaxation is the key to healing!
• An essential prerequisite for healing.
• We cannot heal when we are stressed.
• Conscious relaxation facilitates self-healing
• All about educing the “Relaxation Response”
• Yoga’s greatest contribution
to modern healthcare!
Yoga places great importance on a proper and healthy
lifestyle whose main components are:
ACHAR – healthy physical activities & exercise
VICHAR – right thoughts and right attitude towards
life that are vital for wellbeing.
AHAR – healthy, nourishing diet with adequate intake
of fresh water; balanced intake of fresh food, green
salads, sprouts, unrefined cereals & fresh fruits.
Sattwic diet, prepared & served with love & affection.
VIHAR – proper recreational activities to relax body
and mind are essential for good health.
VYAVAHAR – healthy relationships for social health
And not merely the absence of disease.

“There are many centers where you can get a
Yoga degree, attend a Yoga therapy session or
find Yoga research being undertaken. However,
to have all three happening in one place is
surely innovative. This center is indeed a role-

that of the West.”

  • 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. 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.
