Location: Indiana, United States

I became a Professor Emeritus after serving 29 years as a recreational therapy faculty member at Indiana University. I'm a long-time Hoosier, having grown up in Hanover, Indiana. My RT practitioner work was in psych/mental health. After completing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois, my first faculty position was at the University of North Texas. RT has been a wonderful profession for me as I have had the opportunity to serve as an author and national leader.

NIH Study Supports Benefits of Yoga

Did you happen to see the report today in Parade magazine on the bennefits of twice-weekly participation in Iyengar-style yoga? It relieved back pain and reduced depression.

Unfortunately, the Parade article didn't mention the names of the researchers but did state the research was published in the journal Spine. If I can locate the origional source I'll pass it along in another post.

Thanks Dr. Austin. I always appreciate good research that can support programs that we, rec therapists provide.
