"Yoga therapy is commonly used for the management of arthritis, but often focuses exclusively on adaptation of the physical poses and on structural solutions. This book moves beyond the traditional routines to present yoga as a lifestyle designed to improve quality of life and overall well-being for individuals living with arthritis and rheumatic conditions. By incorporating the ancient practices of yoga as both physical and mental exercises involving a model of five koshas or sheaths (physical, energetic, mental/emotional, wisdom, and spiritual), the whole-person approach presented here will help reduce pain and shift the perspective of the individual living with arthritis. This book is full of inspiration for self-care along with instructions for yoga teachers and medical professionals to guide their clients using this whole-person perspective"-- Provided by publisher.
