A yoga therapist's guide through the IAYT competencies? What's not to like? The editors have brought together insights from some of the finest minds in our field, creating a solid go-to textbook for all yoga therapists. The chapters are organized in a concise and clear way, making for easy reference. Yoga Therapy Foundations, Tools, and Practice provides a path towards deepening our understanding of the profession while begging us to ask some important questions of ourselves.

If I were to recommend one book to an aspiring Yoga Therapist or a seasoned Yoga Therapist this would be the one. It presents a rich compilation of Yoga Foundations, Therapeutic Skills, Professional Practices, and a comprehensive approach to research literacy. I particularly loved how the applications of yoga therapy were demonstrated through case studies which brought the text to life. Well done!
