Yogiraj Shri Vethathiri Maharishi after years of intense research has systematized a series of exercises that is suitable for all climates and all sections of the human community in the contemporary age.In the human physical system, the subtle life-force and the gross body are linked by three media: blood, heat and air. If the normal quantity and quality of these media and their circulation are adversely affected, the harmony between the body and life-force is disturbed and the result is pain.For maintaining good health one must guard against disturbances in the body, life-force and the three media of blood, heat and air.Neglect, improper or over-indulgence in food, sleep, work, sex and use of thought-force cause disturbance to the normal functioning of the body in various ways. Natural causes such as climatic changes, hereditary imprints and changes in the planetary configurations and radiation also can disturb the health and mind. It is not possible to change any of these natural forces, but we can always be cautious in our own actions and thus avoid harmful results, and practice regular exercise to maintain the required fitness.If spiritual development is to take place, the body must be free of diseases and pain to the maximum extent. Therefore, all spiritual aspirants are first and foremost advised to take up this system of physical health that would enable one to reap much more benefits in spiritual practices.The benefits of different stages of Simplified Physical Exercise are as follows
