Swami Kulalayananda is one of such pioneers who created a modern scientific blend of Yogan and science to spread the art across the world with scientific proofs that yoga can actually improve the health and psychic standards of human society. Inspired by Sri Aurobindo, Kuvalayananda took the path of enlightenment with the guidance of Paramahamsa Madhavadas, who first encourage Kuvalayananda to delve deep into Science of Yoga.

So, he studied deeply, the effects of Yoga on Human embodiment and stated the benifits clearly with proof. He first started a research lab in Baroda, in 1920. Eventually, his idea was taken up by many yoga enthusiasts. Kuvalayananda took up it as his mission to improve human life by letting humanity acknowledge the divine within through the dynamics of Yoga, with ample scientific proofs, which is now the whole world undeniably put into their daily lives.
