"This reader-friendly text is directed toward therapists andhealthcare workers who are considering incorporating yoga andmeditation into their work. These technologies are time-honored andappear to have beneficial effects on contemporary clients andpatients.

Thechapters on neuroscience research and healthy aging are unique inbooks of this nature, and the discussion of alleviating depressionalone is worth the price of the book."
