Based on the very old wisdom and ethos the science of man, yoga in Kerala, is considered to be an art of living a balanced, healthy, and peaceful life. Being an integrated system, yoga studies and treats human beings in total relating to the mind, body and spirit. Yoga is an epitome of age old principles and values. It is a way of life which benefits the human beings socially and personally.

This not only ensures physical well being but it also gives moral elevation, mental peace, harmony and a spiritual uplift for man along with converting man from his animal like existence to an inspiring pinnacle of divinity.

Instant yoga in Kerala is not to be found. It is not just an act of sitting in a posture with closed eyes. It is an act where in an attitude and approach to life is cultivated. It is not just a philosophy that is imbibed it is also a philosophy that is practiced and lived. Therefore it is not enough only to think about yoga but also to live it and do it in our lives. There is a necessity of meditation in Kerala to understand that yoga is not a replacement for action. The effort of humans is crucial. The renovation will not be got at the cost of action but will enable us to do our duties more effectively and efficiently and with honesty.

The importance of subconscious and the mind over the whole personality of the human beings had been recognized by meditation in Kerala much earlier than the modern day psychology found in its present form. Yoga is considered as an eight fold path done stage wise and step wise that leads to final liberation from the suffering and pain. The steps thus taken pave the way gradually to the state of distinctive knowledge, the highest state of creativeness and help to attain the perfection we desire.
