Providing 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 educationl competencies of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).

If I were to recommend one book to an aspiring Yoga Therapist or a seasoned Yoga Therapist this would be the one. It presents a rich compilation of Yoga Foundations, Therapeutic Skills, Professional Practices, and a comprehensive approach to research literacy. I particularly loved how the applications of yoga therapy were demonstrated through case studies which brought the text to life. Well done! -- Mary Northey, C-IAYT, Dean Kripalu School of Integrative Yoga Therapy
An amazing resource for any Yoga Therapist. Such deep source material and experienced contributors. A great textbook to have! -- Kamalesh Ginger Hooven, AP, C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, Mount Madonna Institute, Chair, School of Yoga; Director, Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy program
