Yoga has become increasingly popular in mainstream culture, with varied interpretations of how it should be taught and practiced, and increased awareness of its beneficial effects as a healing modality. As a result, yoga therapy has emerged as an effective alternative approach to health and wellness. Explaining the principles and underpinning ideas presented by the yoga therapy movement, James Foulkes identifies the methods leading to the most effective practice.

Applying a principles-based approach, he explores the concept of delivering yoga therapeutically and discusses more complete ways of thinking about anatomy and the wholeness of the human being, using theories, illustrations, and case studies. Yoga therapy practitioners will learn to improve their work and more effectively support their clients.


'This concise, considered, and informative book makes a valuable contribution to the library of Yoga Therapists. This book not only applies to Yoga therapists. It also gives a timely reminder to all yoga teachers, of the power and efficacy of the processes at their disposal, and given the tools, highlights the potential for healing and transformation on all levels.'
- John Stirk, Yoga Teacher, Osteopath, Author of The Original Body

'James has developed an understanding of yoga (from working with me) and combined this with his study in kung fu, qi gong and cranial sacral therapy. This book provides a fresh view all of his own. Certainly those who combine yoga with other therapeutic modalities will find this perspective refreshing.'
- Diane Long, author of Notes on Yoga: The Legacy of Vanda Scaravelli
