I’m very excited to share with you this article that my husband Brett and I just authored for the International Association of Yoga Therapist’s publication, Yoga Therapy Today. It was published in the most recent edition: Winter, 2016, Volume 12, Issue 1. It’s called Yoga Therapy: Meeting the Needs of the Triple Aim. The Triple Aim is a healthcare improvement framework that was put forth by the Institute of Healthcare Improvement and adopted into the Affordable Care Act.
I haven’t published anything in YTT since 2007 so I’m really happy, that after an almost decade hiatus, this article was accepted and actually, is being featured on their website.
Brett (who is a social worker, licensed clinical addiction specialist, and prevention specialist) and I are passionate about the wide spread adoption of yoga and yoga therapy in the healthcare system. And we are hoping that this article will help to raise interest in the burgeoning field of yoga toward making yoga accessible to more people. As of the latest surveys, about 20 million people currently practice yoga, but many more could benefit from the practices, especially if they are couched to the needs of specific populations.
I hope you enjoy this and if so, please write a comment below and let us know what you think. Here’s the link.
Thank you for this informative and inspiring article, so helpful to all yoga professionals!
