Much of the literature on yoga and psychoanalysis focuses on similarities and dierences between these healing traditions (Brar, 1970; Chakraborty, 1970; Neki, 1967; Vaidyanathan & Kripal, 1999). What would happen if we used yoga and psychoanalysis to complement each other? How would such a partnership aect the progress of an analysis and what adverse consequences might ensue? If we observe that yoga facilitates psychoanalysis, how do we understand such eects in light of current neuro-psychoanalytic concepts?
