Ayurveda and Yoga is considered by many scholars as the oldest healing sciences. They are often called the mother of all healing.” Adhering similar sentiments, Guruji Dr HR Nagendra, President, Indian Yoga Association and Chancellor, S-VYASA said, “The challenge is how to integrate the system into a common platform.
