Yoga has a limited but a powerful arsenal of procedures- different asanas and myriad vinyasas, breathing exercises, variety of unique mudras, meditation techniques, to strengthen almost all systems of the human body/mind. It is therefore called, sarvanga sadhana or a method of accessing and working on every part and system of the body, including the internal organs/ parts.
In this program, emphasis will be placed on a proper assessment of the available yoga techniques to impart health to different parts of the body, especially the internal organs. Procedures specifically for the different systems and organs like the heart and the circulatory system, lungs and the respiratory system, the abdominal organs and the digestive system, pelvic organs, the brain, spine and the nadis, all from purely a yogic perspective will be discussed and practiced. Aided by a proper diet and a calm mind, Yoga could ensure healthy internal organs and a robust disease free life.
