Human muscles can be enhanced by strengthening them, but also making them very flexible. If you do Upa Yoga, or Angamardana practices, fitness is assured. But Yoga is not an exercise form. It's for wellbeing in all aspects - physical health, energy, mind and also the spiritual dimension. Sadhguru says - "You don’t have to do Yoga to lose weight or to stay healthy. You just have to eat sensibly, play tennis or take a swim. The focus of Yoga is to set another dimension alive within you that is beyond the physical".
Sadhguru says that the root cause of all chronic ailments is in the energy body. Disturbance in the energy body can be caused because of various factors - food, relationships, atmosphere, emotions, attitudes, thoughts and opinions. Sadhguru says - "The basic premise in Yoga is that if your energy body is in full flow and properly balanced, there can be no chronic disease either in your physical body or your mental body. If people are willing to do a certain amount of sadhana to balance and activate their energy body, they can definitely be free of all chronic ailments."
In a way, all compulsions are some kind of an addiction. People need to realize that it is not their right to get into a mess and expect others to take care of it.

Sadhguru says that usually what we consider as a problem of memory, is actually not a problem of memory, but of clarity. Everything that we perceive through the five sense organs is always recorded. The problem is only when you want to retrieve it. So, its not the memory, its clarity that one needs to work upon. A simple way of enhancing clarity is to do everything with precision. Hatha Yoga is all about precision. Once you bring precision into your activity, there will be precision in the mind. Sadhguru also gives a technique to enhance this process further.
Chemotherapy, is a calculated risk, a choice between damage and death. Though now the science of chemotherapy is much advanced, still there are side effects, and the rejuvenation process of the body is seriously affected. Sadhguru says - "After the chemo period is over, the main thing is the cell multiplication should be brought back to normal. For recovery from the effects of chemo, the elemental processes (like bhuta shiddhi) that we do can be of immense value and people can regain their rejuvenation process very effectively."
