Dr Ishwar V. Basavaraddi

Yoga is an Art and Science of healthy living. It is a spiritual discipline based on an extremely subtle science, which focuses on bringing harmony between Mind and Body. The holistic approach of Yoga is well established, known for bringing harmony in all walks of life. It is, thus, a therapeutic medicine for prevention of diseases, promotion of health, and management of many lifestyle-related disorders.

The term “YOGA” is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘YUJ’, meaning ‘to join’, or ‘to yoke’ or ‘to unite’. As per Yogic scriptures the practice of yoga leads to union of individual consciousness with that of the universal consciousness, indicating a perfect harmony between the Mind and Body, Man and Nature.

The aim of Yoga is Self-realization. To overcome all kinds of sufferings while achieving ‘the state of liberation’. This is one of the oldest sciences of the world originated in India, which is very useful for preserving and maintaining one’s physical and mental health while attaining ‘Spiritual Evolution’. 

The practice of Yoga is believed to have started with the very dawn of civilization.  Mythologically, the oldest principal deity of Hinduism, LORD SHIVA is considered to be the first teacher of YOGA.

    MDNIY has been spearheading to revive the
    ancient Indian heritage in the science & art of YOGA as a way of life. It has been highly successful in establishing universal recognition of its benefits in promotion of health, preventing all life-style ailments, reversing the effects of premature aging, and helping to recover from all psychological as well as psychosomatic disorders.
    For its full benefits to humanity, its study and practice must be included as an essential subject at all levels of education, and especially
    in the curriculum of all the systems of medicine.
    This solitary step shall help in ensuring ATMANIRBHAR BHARAT with “HEALTH FOR ALL” in the country in quick time and shall be far more productive than all the progress in medical science.
