General Information about yoga is that, it is only performing yogasanas. But it is not so. As per Pathanjali, Yoga has eight limbs. In this book Yoga Therapy, we have tried to cover all the eight limbs, i.e., Yama, Niyama, Asana, Pranayama, Prathyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi. This gives not only bodily benefit, but also mental, emotional and spiritual benefit.

Healthy condition of body, mind and spirit is an instrument for "Purusartha" according to the great sage Charaka. But today, it is a forgotten fact and the human beings run after only worldly facilities without knowing the goals of life. As a result of this, mankind is under heavy stress and suffering from various types of psychosomatic disorders. Hence, now-a-days Yoga, a holistic approach is considered as an effective treatment for stress oriented disorders. Only properly practiced Yoga techniques, according to the needs of an individual serve this purpose.
Sri H. S. Keshavamurthy, a well-known expert in this field, has effectively contributed to the remedy of health problems of people by publishing this book on "Yoga Therapy For Common Diseases". In this book, he has explained techniques of Yoga which are useful for daily practice. So also, the application of Yoga for various psychosomatic disorders are explained for the patients which is the need of the hour today.
I wish a good success to Sri. H. S. Keshavamurthy who is an example for the Students, Practitioners and Professionals of Yoga Therapy by his valuable works. Let more precious works come into light in this field by him.
