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.
