Product Description

Details

This book is an industry reference guide for how and why yoga therapy can be used as an adjunct treatment in mental health. The first two chapters detail yoga's history as a mental health intervention and the underlying physiological mechanisms, while following chapters look in depth at different mental health conditions from both a yoga and clinical perspective exploring the use of yoga in therapeutic practice. Not only will the book serve as a reference, but also a bridge between yoga therapy and healthcare, helping to add to the process of growing integration.
