Swami Kuvalyananda (30 August 1883 - 18 April 1966), founder of Kaivalyadham, said to his student O.P. Tiwari some days before his death, “I have brought up this institution out if nothing, and if it goes to nothing, I don’t mind, but yoga should not be diluted.” 
  Swamiji was the first to subject yogic practices to thorough scientific investigation, and he   rejected anything that was disproved in the laboratory. “Do not claim that yoga can treat every disorder,” he told O.P. Tiwari in the same meeting at his Kuti. “Every therapy has limitations, and yoga too.”  From the souvenir program of Kaivalyadham’s 7th International Conference, December 2012, pp. 10-11.   
  “Through his continuous and missionary zeal in promoting research and  yoga  therapy, he built Kaivalyadham,” said Subodh Tiwari in 2000. Today, nearly a hundred years later, the institute continues to be a globally respected hub for learning and practicing yoga.
