Adapting & Delivering Community-Based Yoga for People with TBI
People with TBI often experience difficulty identifying and accessing TBI-specific community services, which can significantly undermine their quality of life. This recent research published in the International Journal of Yoga Therapy explores the best practices for adapting and delivering community-based yoga for people with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
The study reveals 6 key themes for TBI-adapted yoga:

- creating a safe space
- position of the head and neck
- importance of props
- special considerations for yoga studios.
As the benefits of yoga for those living with TBI continue to emerge, this research couldn't be more valuable! Have a read...
