Yoga Therapy

· We don't meet you as a patient of a "disease". we meet you as a whole unique individual that you are.
· We take into account your personality, age, sex, education, occupation, family life, his/her interests etc.
· We are interested in knowing why and how you have decided to approach us at this particular juncture of your life.

· We assess your physical, psychological status during one to one meeting - going through necessary details of history of the psychosomatic illness, stage of the illness, investigations done by various experts, medical treatment-surgical intervention-radiological therapy-physiotherapy- if any.
· We design a suitable-safe course in Raj-Yoga for you taking into account your motivation, level of trust and comfort with us, available time, age, profession, family support and of course the health status.
· The clients who come to us have single or multiple illnesses like

- Essential Hypertension
- Ischaemic Heart disease with various sequelae
- Functional headache, Migraine
- Obesity
- Allergic bronchial Asthma
- Acid peptic disease
- Panic disorder
- Irritable bowel syndrome

We do look at pregnancy as normal physiological happening. We keep in touch with client's obstetrician. We invite for yoga training and care, pregnant ladies who have completed first three months of fetus’s organogenesis (first trimester) and are under close supervision of obstetrician and have safe and healthy pregnancy.

· We do not interfere with family physician or consultant's line of treatment unless we find major flaw in scientific understanding of the problem. We do "not" insist on you, to stop any kind of medication on our own. We do "not" claim that Yoga Therapy is an answer to all illnesses. We do not recommend yoga Therapy to those clients to whom a surgical intervention/hospital admission/ICU care/bed rest at home is insisted by Physician/Surgeon.
· We openly tell about limitations of Yoga Therapy. If we feel the need, taking into account degree of pain, stiffness, rigidity in the muscles of a person, we recommend Ayurvedic Massage. You and a trained person with authenticity and experience in massage mutually decide about details of the sessions.
· For persons having anxiety disorders, depression, personality disorders, family discord, work-place tensions showing moderate to severe degree of mental stress, we recommend Counseling and Psychotherapy -- either a short term or long-term work. This counseling and psychotherapy is offered at the "Sweekruti" center to help persons who wish to help themselves. (ref: http://www.sweekruti.org)

We understand and practice yoga as
"Way of life - a state of awareness of self in relation to outer world".
