Kriyā without a knowledge of the individuals Doṣa is certainly going to do more harm than good

“In addition, the use of Kriyā,
without a knowledge of the individuals Doṣa
is certainly going to do more harm than good.

Doṣa, briefly, means the constitution of the individual;
some are fat, some tend to get a lot of colds,
some have acid problems, some are nervous.

So different beings show different predominances in the Doṣa,
and Kriyā must be considered in relation to these varying constitutions.”

TKV Desikachar from lectures on ‘The Yoga of T Krishnamacharya’,
given at Zinal, Switzerland 1981.
