The process of Yoga Therapy is based on selecting and sequencing asanas which stretch specified parts of the body, and block others. Yoga therapy calms the brain and soothes the nerves, reducing the apprehension of pain. Yoga therapy begins with understanding the entire human body. The origins and development of the ailment in question are carefully studied, particularly the parts of the body most affected. The aim is not simply to cure the specific symptom, but to target the cause.
Guruji Shri B.K.S. Iyengar invented the sequences of asanas with support of specific props for each disease / pains. His 76 years of research resulted in a way out for the patients to cure their diseases / pains without medicine and without side effects. By doing simple asanas, one can cure their back pain, neck pain and knee pain. Asanas work on the body by stimulating injured parts of the body by increasing the blood supply to the parts and cure the injury / pain. Practice of Asanas also increases our ability to bear the pain. Yoga therapy rejuvenates the body and gives more resistance.
