Speaking of yoga research...I got this information in my email inbox today from The International Association of Yoga Therapists. The IAYT is a wealth of information for yoga teachers and therapists; they publish an annual journal of scientific research, as well as the Yoga Therapy Today publication. Although mental health issues are well-covered in their publications, you will also find information on a variety of issues, such as back pain, osteopenia, training issues, preventing yoga injuries and much more.
Here are links to further information on the organization, their upcoming conference, and the also worthwhile Himalayan Institute. Check them out!
This will be a single track academic research meeting devoted to yoga and yoga therapy research that will include presentations by senior researchers, extensive poster sessions, and ample opportunities for interaction between scientists, trainees and yoga therapists and instructors.
