Description
About the Book

In the last few years, the concept of yoga therapy is gaining popularity all over the world. From being a "last resort" option to be used only when all other modern systems of medicine have failed yoga is today well established as a highly effective and practical system of healing and therapy. The reason is its unique, holistic approach that addresses not the problem but the cause(s) of the problem. Sadly today, health is understood merely as a workout for physical fitness and the practice of yoga is limited to achieving the perfect posture. This limited understanding of yoga fails to consider the holistic effect of yoga on the human system.

Tkrishnamacharya made it his life's work to heal people be adapting yoga to suit their individual needs and thus maximizing the benefits they derived from it. Is little wonder then that therapy has been the primary focus at Krishnamacharya yoga Mandiram since its inception in 1976. At KYM, therapy does not stop with just helping people deal with physical illness, but extends to those seeking relief from emotional and spiritual problems as well.

This book will help the reader understand how KYM operates, through the eyes of a qualified scientific researcher. The purpose of this study is to identify and describe the processes of yoga therapy as conducted by teachers at the KYM. The data has been drawn from one-to-one interviews with the teachers. The analysis is interpretative, following the rigors of qualitative research.

Broad areas addressed in this book constitute topics such as – "Tailoring the Teaching to the Individual student", Aiming at the Mind While Dealing with the Body." "Commitment to the Lineage of T. Krishnamacharya" and "Healing through Relationship."

Teachers at the KYM, who provided the data for this study have received the teachings directly from the lineage of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar. This book provides a window into that extraordinary healing tradition as it unfolds today.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
