Recommended Reading: Medical Yoga Therapy

I just bought Terry Roth Schaff’s new book, Medical Yoga Therapy A Practical Guide for the Yoga & Medical Community (2018) and I’ve already found modifications I can use in next week’s classes.

Based on extensive clinical experience with patients, Terry trains yoga and medical professionals to use yoga to treat such widespread ailments as osteoporosis, arthritis, herniated discs and stenosis.

I was already a big fan of Terry’s previous book, Yoga for a Healthy Spine (2012), which has been the foundation for several classes I’ve taught over the last six years.

Terry’s work has been featured in the medical journal, Topics On Geriatric Rehabilitation and in Yoga Therapy Today. Her recent book¬†is receiving high praise from leading doctors at teaching hospitals.
