Yoga Therapy Today, Winter, 2013 Issue, International Association of Yoga Therapists
"This book will absolutely be among the seminal texts for relatively experienced and competent yoga therapists beginning to practice in this field. It gives very sound information, plenty of encouragement and practical information, a solid and unwavering sense of love for these children as the starting place for this work, a consistent admonishment to connect through one's own heart and practice, and a natural starting point for continued study. I am thrilled to see this book among the many emerging texts of yoga therapy -- it is timely, empirically sound, and very much needed."
