Research Method

The Life in Yoga research method is unusual. We have a panel of researchers who can tune into the energy system of others and detect patterns. To avoid biases we often require validation from multiple researchers on a single subject. This constitutes a method of detection – which is the equivalent of having some form of meter for reading patterns in the physical sciences.

A method used for inference is to see the effect of energy stimulation through various exercises and how a subject feels.
