Few words suggest the mystic 'wisdom of the east' more strongly than Yoga. Yet this book is immensely practical. Its aim is to present quite simply some basic principles of living and to show you how they can be put into practice through specific exercises. Hatha Yoga, or the control of the body, teaches the naturalness of a long and healthy life and a tranquil old age, and that 'all disorders, even infectious diseases, are the result of mental causes'. Selvarajan Yesudian himself overcame a sickly childhood with the help of Yoga and now runs a Yoga school in Switzerland with Elizabeth Haich. This book, the fruit of their experience, is designed to help a wider circle of western readers. Disease, they maintain, is a lack of positive life force: to be healthy is a duty. --- from book's back cover
