Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY) offers an innovative methodology which changes both the practice of yoga and rehabilitative science by combining them, making MTY a distinct and separate practice from, but yet a complementary arm to, yoga and yoga therapy. This book introduces the health care professional in use and application of physical yoga practice in a biopsychosocial model of assessment for any practice setting and patient or wellness population, and also provides the yoga instructor and yoga therapist the knowledge-base and opportunity to establish a healthy dialogue and partnership-based relationship with healthcare providers who practice medical therapeutic yoga.
