Today yoga no longer is restricted to hermits of saints and sages. It has taken its place in everyday life and has aroused the world wide awakening and acceptances in the last decade. The science of yoga and its techniques have now been re-oriented to suit physiological needs & life styles. Experts of various branches of medicine including modern science are realizing role of these techniques in prevention & management of various disorders.
