Yoga physiology and anatomy according to classical yoga and tantra texts
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Srikrishna Chandaka and Dr. Suneetha Kandi
Yoga has grown to be a very popular science. It has become one of the most favored alternative therapy and fitness programs. A huge amount of scientific investigations are being carried out throughout the world using state-of-the-art technology in order to identify, measure and verify the almost miraculous results of yoga on the human body and mind. It is necessary to understand the science of yoga in a holistic sense which necessities the understanding of terms and concepts as mentioned in the classical texts of yoga. These concepts of yoga physiology and anatomy which are presented here, might be easily brushed away as ‘unscientific’ since these concepts have yet to be verified by ‘machines’. Nevertheless, in order to understand and explain the miraculous benefits, the modern medicine needs to look at them to find answers – if not now; at least in the near future.
