Yoga Therapy includes loosening exercises, asanas, pranayam, mudras, yoga nidra (deep relaxation) and meditation. These are very powerful and successful methods of preventing and curing diseases. Nature cure and yoga therapy are the two wheels of the cart on the road to a healthier life.
Yoga Techniques Used
Yogasanas includes gentle stretching and toning exercises. Each asana massages, stimulate and relaxes the internal organs, glands and toning the nerves throughout the body. It improves our physical, mental and spiritual health and thus cures many diseases
Pranayam is a serried of breathing techniques which stimulate and increase the vital energy in the nadis (energy pathways). It purifies them and induces physical mental health. It cleans and energises aura (energy body) and all the chakras
Yoga Nidra is a deep relaxation technique, where we learn to consciously relax. It is a state of dynamic psychic sleep with inner awareness. It releases mental, muscular and emotional tension.
Yogic Shatkarma -usually Saturday or Sunday are the days when yogic purificatory practices are practiced at ANCC for excreting toxic wastes accumulated in various parts of body. Neti for cleansing the nasal passage. Shankhprakshalana for cleansing the whole of digestive track, that is very much helpful in most disease related to digestive system. Trataka is also done on this day.
Yoga is a system of exercise for physical, mental and spiritual well being. The first written description was attributed by Pantanjali and was found in the yoga sutras. Pantanjali stated eight stages of yoga, the yama (universal moral commandments), niyama (self-purification through discipline), asana (posture), pranayama (breath-control), pratyahara (withdrawal of mind from external objects), dharana (concentration), dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi (state of super-consciousness).

Meditation is a safe and simple way to balance a persons physical, emotional and mental states. The concept of meditation works on the principle that when the mind is calm and focussed on the present, it is neither reacting to memories from the past nor being pre-occupied with plans for the future, two major sources of chronic stress known to impact health.
Long-term benefits include greater equanimity and acceptance of lifes ups and downs and a more alert and focused mind. Vipassana Meditation is one of them, which is highly recommended. To find out more about it, you can visit www.dhamma.org

As you practice this technique, you will automatically become less and less self-centred and more and more selfless. We actually spend hours and hours every day subconsciously praying to fulfil our desires and ego trips. As this suffering-causing habit lessens, we become more and more ready to listen silently as God whispers lovingly to us. They help to balance the endocrine system.
Meditation and prayer also calms the mind, enhancing the effectiveness of other treatments.
