Integrating Art Therapy and Yoga Therapy

Yoga, Art, and the Use of Intention

Jessica Kingsley Publishers
At the heart of Karen Gibbon's book is the Intention Centered Yoga and Art Therapy technique (ICYAT), which entwines intention into the seat of yoga, mudras, and artwork. Delineating the ethical, educational and professional practices for yoga therapy and art therapy, Gibbons combines these interrelated modalities into a mutually beneficial prescription to promote wellbeing and restructurehabitual patterns towards health.

– Dr. Ellen G. Horovitz, ATR-BC, LCAT, E-RYT, LFYP, author of Yoga Therapy: Theory and Practice

A work of art! Gibbons provides an in-depth perspective to combining Art Therapy and Yoga Therapy with a pure, grounded understanding that only practice and wisdom can create. Her sensitive and highly developed approach guides us in a gentle and clear manner that is inspiring. Namaste!

– Eileen P McGann, ATR-BC, LCAT Graduate Faculty, School of Visual Arts and New York University Graduate Director of the Arts and Creative Therapies, MercyFirst, Syosset NY
