Yoga therapy holds the key to effectively addressing stress and lifestyle diseases. Conventional medicine is useful for alleviating symptoms, but yoga therapy that is grounded in traditional theory identifies and addresses causes deeper than the physical body. Yoga therapy practices build resistance to stress and increase resilience. Kazuo Keishin Kimura is a Raja Yoga Acharya who has devoted himself to making traditional yogic wisdom accessible in Japan. With this English translation of his book, he hopes to contribute internationally to yoga therapy's development as a respected modality. In this book, Kimura points out how traditional yoga theory is missing from modern-day yoga instruction. He then explains traditional yoga's view of the mind-body complex as five koshas (sheaths), each with specific functions and attributes. Just as medical doctors examine patients before deciding on treatment, yoga therapists must obtain informed consent and assess the conditions of all koshas. Understanding yoga's horse-drawn chariot metaphor for human structure and function is also helpful to see beyond symptoms and to identify root causes of disease. Kimura skillfully guides readers to understand these two theories of human structure and function, and illustrates how they can be incorporated into both yoga therapy assessment and practice.

Yoga therapy is gaining rapid recognition as a form of treatment that can improve the physical and mental wellbeing of children with a variety of complex needs. This book contains a specially-designed yoga program for use with children of all abilities, and provides both parents and professionals with the knowledge they need to carry out the therapy themselves. The program consists of a series of postures, each of which is explained and accompanied by an illustration. The postures are designed to help children understand and use their bodies, and work towards positive changes such as realigning the spine, encouraging eye-contact, and promoting calm and steady breathing. Consideration is given to creating the right setting for carrying out the therapy, assessing an individual child's particular needs, and making the sessions fun using games and props. Sections on yoga therapy for specific conditions such as autistic spectrum disorder, Down syndrome, and cerebral palsy are included, and the book concludes with child and parent reports on how the program has worked for them, and a list of useful contacts and resources. This practical book is a must for parents, teachers, therapists and other professionals, and anybody else who wants to help a child to develop through enjoyable and therapeutic yoga sessions.

This dynamic approach to therapy combines yoga and art to heal the whole person - body, mind and spirit - through the use of intention. In this practical guide art therapists will learn how to incorporate yoga poses, mudras and meditation, and yoga therapists to introduce art directives, into individual and group clinical work for a more holistic healing process. Readers will discover the parallels that exist between the two modalities, and how to use a specific intention as a framework for structuring sessions, with the aim of reaching a deeper level of healing in their clinical work. Guidelines for staying within each modality's scope of practice and working ethically are included, as well as an extensive Practice Chart, which shows how to match treatment concerns with an intention, mudra meditation, yoga poses and art activity. Ideal for art therapists looking to expand and enhance their practice, this book will also appeal to yoga therapists and teachers with an interest in art-based techniques. Although primarily meant for therapists, it is also accessible for individuals looking for self-improvement.
