Beyond Asana: Other Yoga Therapy Tools

While the physical postures are the best-known tools in the yoga toolbox, breathing techniques, meditation, chanting, and other practices can be very useful in yoga therapy.

By Timothy McCall, M.D.

This is yoga, after all, and the whole is always more than the sum of the parts.

Dr. Timothy McCall is a board-certified internist, Yoga Journal's Medical Editor, and the author of the forthcoming book Yoga as Medicine: The Yogic Prescription for Health and Healing (Bantam Dell, summer 2007). He can be found on the Web at www.DrMcCall.com.

Very informed article and a good guide line for anyone on the yogic path.

I am trying to access Yantras from This website perhaps in downloadable form. Any idea if they are available. I was advised they possibly could be found at http://www.yogajournal.com/
