Studying efficacy of yoga therapy: Individual centric approach
D Dwarakanath, Dr. V Duraiswami
Research in Yoga Therapy is largely focussed on studying the benefits of a fixed intervention commonly for all participants. Though the subjects may be homogeneous in several aspects, despite training each and every one may not have the ability to do the practices at the expected level. Similarly, all practices may not be appropriate for the subjects. At the constitutional level each person is unique in body structure, attitudes, mental status. This paper is an effort to evolve an individualised methodology while maintaining the rationale of commonality of practices. To examine the feasibility of individualised methodology in yoga therapy studies. Also to discover the basis and practicability of such an individualised approach.
