(not promoting book below, I have no connection with author or publisher, it is just a book on an aspect of therapy and treatment that I thought folks might be interested in)


Recovery Yoga

- A Practical Guide for Chronically Ill, Injured, and Post-Operative People


"Recovery Yoga" is a book by Sam Dworkis:

extensionyoga.com/recovery_yoga.asp

Here's the link in Amazon.com:


www.amazon.com/Recovery-Yoga-Practical-C...


looks like there are used copies for as little as $7 + shipping.



Found this while going through some old boxes. 

The direction of the book seems very wise.  It takes Yoga and transforms it to help people who are quite ill.

I am sure that there are other books on similar topics, but this is the one with which I happen to be familiar.
