Yoga and Mindfulness: Clinical Aspects of an Ancient Mind/Body Practice
Salmon, Paul; Lush, Elizabeth; Jablonski, Megan; Sephton, Sandra E.
Cognitive and Behavioral Practice, v16 n1 p59-72 Feb 2009
The use of Yoga and other complementary healthcare interventions for both clinical and non-clinical populations has increased substantially in recent years. In this context, we describe the implementation of Hatha Yoga in the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program of Kabat-Zinn and colleagues. This is embedded in a more general consideration of Yoga's place in complementary healthcare. In providing this overview, we comment on the nature and quality of current research on Yoga, summarize current physiological and psychological explanations of its effects, and discuss practical issues related to teacher training and experience.
