The ancient science of Yoga Psychology, with its connection to Western psychology and its use in understanding the workings of the mind to overcome negative emotions is considered the therapeutic application of yoga for mental health.

The insights from this practice offer an opportunity to develop a deeper inner awareness and explore the depths of consciousness. Uma Krishnamurthy illustrates the principles of yoga psychology and transformation with classical Indian dance of the Bharatanatyam tradition, the most ancient of all the classical dance forms in India. Bharatanatyam is the manifestation of the ancient idea of the eternal universe through the celebration of the beauty of the material body. By understanding and integrating the rich wisdom of classical Indian dance with relevant psychological input from yoga psychology and transformational practices, one comes in contact with an inner spiritual experience, beyond language and thought.
