Blurb/Shorttext:
Yoga:Belief and Attitude is a treat for students of cultural anthropology and all those who are inspired by Yoga or are curious to know more, with or without practicing it. The book affirms that yoga is a way of life and breaks the myth of it being a Hindu philosophy or a religious practice. The literature in the book will bring forth moments of awakening to understand the origin and forms of yoga, providing insight to its worldview and philosophy. Yoga is considered as a traditional form of physical and mental exercise, one can say it an alternative medicine like Unani or Ayurveda. Yoga has got a global recognition in maintaining physical and mental health.Yoga has been a broad venture in the western countries, while it is not popularly practiced in India. Keeping this at the backdrop, the book looks at yoga through the lens of medical anthropology and advocates the goodness of yoga for all age groups, especially bringing forth the beliefs and attitudes of college students (youth). This book is a true integration of culture and health practice which allows readers to take a look at their lifestyle and way of being, inspiring them to work towards the well being of mind and body.
