Broadly speaking, yoga education of the physical is twofold having as its objectives.
(i) care, development and control of the external body.
(ii) care, development and control of the internal organs.
The former includes postural training and personal hygiene while the latter consists of varied intricate processes which directly affect the health, development and control of the internal organs.
Of these the yoga postural training while in the main subordinated to the highest spiritual objective is sufficiently exhaustive even as a comprehensive scheme of physical education.Because of their marked physiological reactions with the minimum waste of energy and other similar hygienic benefits the yoga postures offer a unique system of physical training to a women.
What is highly important however is the right selection of the most hygienic postures, either static or dynamic from the many so that they may be systematized into a harmonious course of daily exercises physiologically and otherwise most suited to the peculiar needs of a woman.
With regard to the intricate yoga processes even while these are primarily intended to purify the nervous system they directly affect also the health development and control of almost all the internal organs.Of these the elementary practices have been explained in the official publications of the Institute while the more advanced and complicated require to be studied under the personal guidance of a scientific yogin.
Where such guidance is not available it is safer to defer the study than to risk an injury through misguided practice.This does not mean that the higher yoga practices are injurious but it certainly means that any scientific study undertaken without authorized direction especially when it happens to be an experiment on one own person is likely to prove fruitless or even injurious.
