Below you can find an abstract of the talk, which will be held by PhD. Phys. Doru Bodea:
Scientific studies upon the effects of different forms of yoga practice upon human health (both regarding the human body and the human psychic and mind) and welfare can be dated back to the 50’s. A simple search into the existing online libraries which provide meta-analysis functions, using key words as “yoga and health”, “yoga and welfare” or simply “yoga and scientific studies”, shows staggering and almost hard to believe results, offering numbers in the range of tens of thousands. And we are talking here about peer reviewed papers only. Nevertheless, the distribution of the studies in the last almost 20 years shows an interesting fact.
There is obviously a tremendous increase in the interest science shows to the yoga system and its specific benefits. This is partially due to the extraordinary development of the research facilities. Yet, the increase also proves that science finds worth investing the necessary time and attention to this ancient spiritual discipline. Although the possible marriage between science and spirituality looks still far more an arranged one than love at first sight, we have to admit that even considering the possibility is an enormous step forward from both sides. We invite you to a debate upon the role and relevance of modern science in the wide frame of traditional yoga practice.
