Real Yoga Cures

by Suzanne Beenackers

Harish Johari Ayurveda

When Harish Johari came to the West, his advice to the sick failed to heal them. It took him a while to figure out that Westerners were not so much a different species, but lacked the solid foundation of a daily rhythm.  People were jumping out of bed, skipping breakfast and morning prayers, rushing to work, and completely stressing themselves out. His Ayurveda was working on fine tuning, when in reality the whole foundation for a healthy life was missing. Alarmed by his findings, he changed his approach, and became a succesful healer.

At this moment, the same is happening with yoga. Yoga is a sought after means to relax, to destress and to heal, when the truth is, that yoga is about fine tuning. As long as you stick with your rushed lifestyle, yoga is just occupying space at your to-do list. If you need a cure, before turning to yoga, a doctor, or a psychiatrist, look at the pillars of your life: your daily rhythm and your daily diet. Meditation, yoga and pills, may or may not come after.
