Any healthy and able bodied person can perform these exercises independently without requiring any aid. An ill person, suffering from ailments such as arthritis, back pains and spondylities etc however may need help. It is this supportive treatment for yogic asanas that has been developed and modified by Dr. Anil Sharma (Ph. D).
