The field of yoga therapy is growing at a phenomenal rate. An estimated 1,000 yoga therapy studies have been published since 2000. This represents a nearly fivefold increase since the previous decade. The benefits of yoga as therapy are no secret to the millions of yoga practitioners in the East who have embraced its rich traditions for thousands of years, yet in the West yoga therapy remains relatively novel and, for some, enigmatic. The field of yoga therapy is faced with the necessary task of defining itself to inculcate an understanding of its benefits for individuals regardless of their age or ability level.
