Yoga Therapy as a Creative Response to Pain by Matthew J. Taylor

Supporting yoga therapists to create a programme of care for those living with chronic pain, this guide brings pain science, creativity and yoga together for the first time. It includes the emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual in its definition of pain and acknowledges there that is no simple physical ‘fix’. The book offers advice on creating an environment that restores hope and meaning to clients, and on building a successful business by creating a community of support. Matt Taylor’s blend of creativity and yoga came from his own chronic spine pain as a physical therapist and his discovery of yoga therapy which led to his yoga-based rehabilitation clinic.

Yoga Therapy as a Creative Response to Pain, is a provocative, yet humorous book that will likely shake, stir and then ultimately expand your notion of Yoga therapy, in ways that will deeply reward you both professionally and personally. …. And maybe even move you a little further towards eudaimonia.’
