A new GWI initiative on yoga therapy has a mission of educating the global community—regardless of age, gender or socioeconomic status—about the ancient, evolving and multidimensional science of yoga therapy as a legitimate, evidence-backed and accessible health modality for the 21st century—correcting the idea that it’s just an exercise program or “alternative” medicine.

The Initiative chair is Bija Bennett, wellness consultant, author and founder of YogaAway LLC. The vice-chair is Matthew J. Taylor, PT, PhD, C-IAYT, director of Smart Safe Yoga and past-president of the Board of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).
