    DescriptionMost people think of yoga as a solitary activity that is inherently therapeutic. While that is generally true, yoga poses and breathing practices can also be prescribed for specific health problems--often in combination with dietary advice taken from Ayurveda, traditional Indian medicine. "Yoga Therapy " is an essential guide for yoga teachers, advanced practitioners, and anyone who wants to make therapeutic use of yoga. A. G. and Indra Mohan prescribe postures, breathing techniques, and basic Ayurvedic principles for a variety of common health problems, including asthma, back pain, constipation, hip pain, knee pain, menstrual problems, and scoliosis. "Yoga Therapy " is one of the few books that shows yoga teachers how to put together appropriate yoga sequences and breathing techniques for their students. Mohan details how to correctly move into, hold, and move out of poses, how to breathe during practice to achieve specific results, and how to customize a yoga practice by creating sequences of yoga poses for a particular person.

    Review quote
    "This is a must-have volume for any serious yoga student, whether a yoga therapist or just an everyday practitioner. The mix of both theoretical and practical information allows readers to learn not only about the daily work of yoga, but its essential theoretical underpinnings as well. The book reminds us that yoga is the original holistic health care system."--Richard Rosen, author of "The Yoga of Breath " "A. G. Mohan, a long time disciple of Krishnamacharya, and his wife Indra, herself a talented yoga therapist, are among the world's foremost transmitters of the master's mature teachings. In this book, they take you inside their process of yoga therapy from evaluating the students to planning and implementing a therapeutic regimen. I highly recommend it for teachers and serious students of this lineage."--Timothy McCall, M.D., medical editor of "Yoga Journal " and author of "Yoga as Medicine "
