Yoga has the potential to change our world-both through the alleviation of suffering and the creation of vast opportunities for self-fulfillment. Those of us who practice yoga know that this is true. But in order to bring the transformational effects of yoga deeply into our society, these effects must first be scientifically evaluated—and that’s just what we're doing at the Kripalu Institute for Extraordinary Living (KIEL).

Mediyoga Medical Yoga has been shaped and developed by Göran Boll on Institutet Medicinsk Yoga in Stockholm. Mediyoga is a therapeutic yoga form that springs from classical Kundaliniyoga, a very old, original yoga from the north of India and Tibet. It has roots in the Tantric tradition, one of the oldest forms of yoga known to man. Göran has also brought fundamental aspects of Ayurveda, the multi-millennial Indian medical art, and components from the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) into Kundaliniyogaen.
