The definitive book of yoga therapy, this groundbreaking work comes to you from the medical editor of the country’s premier yoga magazine, who is both a practicing yogi and a Western-trained physician. Beginning with an overview of the history and science of yoga, Dr. McCall describes the many different techniques in the yoga tool kit; explains what yoga does and who can benefit from it (virtually everyone!); and provides lavishly illustrated and minutely detailed instructions on starting a yoga practice geared to your fitness level and your health status. Yoga as Medicine offers a wealth of practical information, including how to: •Utilize yogic tools, including postures, breathing techniques, and meditation, for both prevention and healing of illness •Master the art of becoming more in tune with your body •Communicate more effectively with your doctor •Adopt therapeutic yoga practices as either an alternative or a complement to surgery and to expensive, sometimes dangerous medications •Practice safely Find an instructor and a style of yoga that are right for you. With twenty chapters devoted to the work of individual master teachers, including such well-known figures as Patricia Walden, John Friend, and Rodney Yee, Yoga as Medicine shows how these experts have applied the wisdom of this ancient holistic practice to twenty different conditions, ranging from arthritis to chronic fatigue, depression, heart disease, HIV/AIDS, infertility, insomnia, multiple sclerosis, and obesity. Defining yoga as “a systematic technology to improve the body, understand the mind, and free the spirit,” Dr. McCall shows the way to a path that can truly alter your life. An indispensable guide for the millions who now practice yoga or would like to begin, as well as for yoga teachers, body workers, doctors, nurses, and other health professionals.

This book is a training manual and a resource for nurses, physical therapists, doctors, yoga therapists and yoga teachers who are looking for ways to utilize yoga as a therapeutic modality to help older people and patients suffering from a range of ailments relating to muscles, bones, joints and nerves. This work is called medical yoga therapy: the targeted use of yoga, not merely for general wellbeing but as a complementary form of treatment for specific, diagnosed medical conditions. Medical yoga therapy is not an alternative to western medicine (though it can sometimes eliminate or postpone the need for surgery or drugs): rather, it is a complement. Done correctly, it can relieve pain, increase mobility, improve balance, strengthen muscles, support bone health, and decrease the chance of falls and other injuries which, in older people or patients, can be life-threatening or debilitating. In this book the author introduces readers to thirteen specific medical conditions having to do with bones, joints, muscles, and nerves. And for each condition she offers a selection of appropriate poses, complete with photographs and detailed instructions, including specific hints for working with patients whose strength and range of motion may be quite limited. She has organized each section into three series of poses, seated, stand and floor. These poses have been adapted from traditional hatha yoga postures. They have been designed to relieve pain, improve health, promote acceptance of life, and encourage a peaceful state of mind. All have been carefully chosen and refined through years of clinical practice.
