Yoga Therapy: Foundations, Tools and Practice is a new textbook available that provides essential support to schools and universities that offer Yoga therapy training programs. This comprehensive, edited textbook develops robust curricula, enabling them to prepare Yoga therapists to integrate into healthcare settings safely and effectively.
The book includes a large and international list of contributors from diverse lineages and backgrounds such as Matthew Taylor, Gail Parker and Steffany Moonaz, and is the first resource on Yoga therapy that aligns with the educational competencies of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). It covers Yoga foundations (philosophical background, Ayurveda, classical Tantra), biomedical and psychological foundations, Yoga therapy tools and therapeutic skills, yogic and biopsychosocial-spiritual assessments, and professional practices.
The book is edited by Diane Finlayson and Laurie C. Hyland Robertson, with a foreword by Matra Raj. Available from the publisher, Singing Dragon, and all book sellers. As the field of Yoga therapy continues to root and grow, this book is essential for both new Yoga therapy practitioners, and for schools developing training programs.
