Abstract: Yoga is considered as one of the important measure for prevention of diseases and promotion of health, practiced in India since time immemorial and presently emphasized greatly by the Government of India. In spite, procedural part of Yoga, viz. Asana, is more popular among common people, but actual application of Yoga meant in a wider way. Yoga, in therapeutic purpose, includes both the physical and psychological aspects. Similar approach is also described in Ayurveda. The preventive aspects of therapeutics are the primary aim of Ayurveda and it is predicted that the idea of Ayurveda percolated in Yoga too. Importance of preventive therapeutics is now a great concern in bio-medical sciences. An attempt has been made in the present article regarding concomitant applications of both the Yoga and Ayurveda in prevention of certain diseases like respiratory problems, cardio-vascular diseases, hepato-billiary diseases and diabetes mellitus.
