Yoga As Medicine by Timothy McCall

Yoga as Medicine by Timothy McCall, MD is an authorative and accessible book that shows with reference to study after study how valuable Yoga can be in treating a wide range of afflictions.

It is detailed, comprehensive and informed by the real life experiences of top notch yoga therapists with deep knowledge of their craft.
     Part One of the book introduces the topic of yoga as medicine and quantifies the benefits in a way that the most skeptical Western reader will be convinced of the health benefits that can be achieved throught regular yoga practice. There are also Experiential Exercises in part one designed to show the reader with little yoga experience direct and immediate results.
     Part Two is full of practical guidance on figuring out what yoga is right for you, how to do it safely and for planning and maintaining your own practice.
     Part Three contains the detailed information on twenty particular health problems including back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches and insomnia.

     This book has found wide acceptance and acclaim in the yoga community. And as with Yoga itself it must be experienced to fully understand why.
