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.

"Here is a comprehensive survey of the full breadth and depth of the 5,000-year-old Yoga tradition, emphasizing its potent philosophy and spiritual vision. Georg Feuerstein demonstrates that Yoga is much more than a system of physical exercises—it is a profound path of self-transformation that encompasses a range of teachings, practices, and sacred texts that can help us cultivate wisdom, balance, and inner freedom, as well as physical health. Feuerstein is one of the few Western scholar-teachers of Yoga whose writing and teaching penetrate the full richness and depth of this ancient tradition. Here he offers a collection of essays touching on all facets of the discipline. Topics include: • The different branches and styles of Yoga • The ethical teachings of Yoga • Yoga and vegetarianism • Meditation and mantras • Choosing a teacher • Tantric Yoga • The experience of ecstasy

Supporting yoga therapists to create a programme of care for those living with chronic pain, this guide brings pain science, creativity and yoga together for the first time. It includes the emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual in its definition of pain and acknowledges there that is no simple physical 'fix'. The book offers advice on creating an environment that restores hope and meaning to clients, and on building a successful business by creating a community of support. Matt Taylor's blend of creativity and yoga came from his own chronic spine pain as a physical therapist and his discovery of yoga therapy which led to his yoga-based rehabilitation clinic.

Ayureda and Thai Yoga: Religious Therapeutics Theory and Practice Ayurveda, Indigenous Traditional Thai Medicine and Yoga Therapy is strongly based on Classical Indian Ayurveda. The Indigenous medicine systems of India (Ayurveda, Yoga) have been practiced in one form or another in the land we call Thailand longer than the land has been called Thailand. Ayurveda of Thailand and Thai Yoga originated in the pre-Thai dawn of the great Indian vassel kingdoms of the Khymer and Mon civilizations and in the Theraveda Buddhist medicne practices found within the orders of monks and nuns (the Sangha). The term "Ayurveda" combines the Sanskrit words ayur (life) and veda (science or knowledge). Ayurvedic medicine, originating in India, is one of the oldest systems of indegenous, traditional medicine in the world. Many Ayurvedic practices predate written records and were handed down by word of mouth. The ancient Thai people adopted these ancient traditions and over time adapted them to their way of life. Ayurveda of India, Khymer and Mon cultures became " Ayurveda ofThailand" . The ancient Sage, Monk and Vidya (Ayurvedic Physician) Jivaka or Shivago Komalaboat, the patron saint of ITTM is credited with introducing Ayurveda first to the Buddha himself, successfully treating his illnesses over time and then under the Buddha's authority to the developing Sangha. This became one of the foundations of Buddhist medicine and led to the idea that medicine and wellness of mind, body and spirit together were equally important in pursuing a compassionate life and spiritual enlightenment. These teaching spread across Asias and S.E. Asia and became the dominant medicine of the indigenous cultures found there. SomaVeda Integrated Traditional Therapies(R) Thai Yoga represents a spiritually based appraoch to integrating and practicing these ancient teachings in a modern ministry of counseling and service. Classical Indian, Indigenous Traditional Thai Ayurveda and Yogy Therapy have been adopted as primary religious therapies of the Priory of Saving Grace and the Native American Indigenous Church. When combined in practice with the sacred medicine practices of Indigenous people these arts give us the possibilty of expressing a comprehensive vision of what sacred healing practiced by authorized ministers and medicine persons was always meant to be. Healing is now and always has been an expression and practice of our indigenosu religion. We now have practical means to be able to bring this medicine to our community. Life cycles out harmony with nature keep people from experiencing life in a full and productive way. These healing practices are seen as opportunities to learn a balanced way of living with nature. The nature that is outside of ourselves and the nature that is within. These remarkable teachings regarding restoration and maintenance of life have now been passed on to this generation. Thai Ayurveda/ITTM/ Yoga Therapy incorporates elements of counseling, energy balancing, sacred nutrition and plant based diet, mindfulness, gentle rocking, deep stretching and rhythmic compression to create a singular healing experience. This work, as it brings fundamental elements and energy into harmony; creates wholeness of mind, body and spirit, in the client and the practitioner as well.
