The Science of Health & Healing is YOGA
Yoga science represents a scientific application of Yoga as a therapy. The Sanskrit meaning of the word Yoga is ‘integration’. It represents a process though which one learns how to live life in the most integrated way.
This becomes possible through a process of constant effort for identification and elimination of all the elements, which would lead to dis-integration. The health of the body and mind being the most important components of this integrated state, identification of all the elements, causing ill health techniques for neutralizing these ill effects becomes an important concern in Yoga.
Thus Yoga, viewed at one level as a science of personal growth for spiritual experience can also be viewed at therapy level as a science of Health and Healing.
History of Yoga Therapy

However, Yoga therapy in its present form is a new discipline, created by the marriage of traditional Yoga with modern medicine. Swami Kuvalyananda pioneered Yoga therapy in the early 1920s, applying the methods of modern medical science to study the physiological effects and therapeutic application of Yoga and, in the following decades, his practices spread to the rest of India & World.
