This book of Therapeutical Concepts in Yoga deals with Yogic Therapy, the principles on which they are based, and the scientific background of the same. The therapy can have real practical value, provided its principles are not mixed up with those of some other therapy. Even in some of the modern schools of Yoga, one finds a strong tendency and temptation to mix these up, either perhaps with an innocent view to obtain sanction or to add ‘elegance’ to demonstrations. Medical men, on the other hand, are prone to look upon the system as some form of special ‘exercises’ therapy. The Yogic therapeutical procedures do contain some exercises, but it is to be noted that the physiology of ordinary dynamic and violent exercises cannot be applied to them. Yogic therapy, however, does not consist of mere exercise; it is a composite treatment procedure which pays attention to all aspects of human personality. We, in our Health Centres, attempt to hit at a fair combination of both, and have found that such a procedure expedites results. Patanjali Yoga demands more or less an individual approach. With Hatha Yoga exercises, once the tensions are broken, it is easy to bring out the deep-seated repressions of patients and deal with them appropriately.
