SYTAR 2016 Reports

At this year’s Symposium on Yoga Therapy and Research (SYTAR), there was a sense of definition, purpose, and direction, grounded by the educational standards, accreditation of yoga therapist training programs, certification of individual therapists, and the beginning of yoga therapy’s integration into the world of healthcare.

In this issue, you will read reports on SYTAR, the Meeting of Schools, and a Common Interest Community session, in which each author describes both the progress of the field and the state of the art of the field of yoga therapy. In addition, a visionary perspective on how the foundational moral principles of yoga might be incorporated into population health offers an important future direction to consider in research as well as in therapeutic practice.

The Yoga Therapy in Practice section on working with an older population and with knee pain in clients (Part 2) continues the tradition of this publication in providing educational material and practical advice that are directly applicable to our clinical yoga therapy work.
