iHanuman is honored to offer you the third in our series of lectures from the First Annual NIH Yoga Week. Timothy McCall, M.D. is a board-certified internist, the Medical Editor of Yoga Journal, and the author of two books, including Yoga as Medicine. Since 2000, his main focus has been examining the therapeutic aspects of yoga from a scientific perspective. His most recent book,Yoga As Medicine, begins to address the question which the NIH Yoga Week asks: "How can doctors and researchers bring Yoga into the main stream as a therapeutic modality with scientific support?" Dr. McCall is a critical spokesperson as a researcher AND practitioner of yoga for over 10 years. He is the medical contributor to Yoga Journal. In addition to the writings he generously shares on his website, you can also listen to audio recordings from Yoga Journal Conferences.
Thanks to all of the organizers and participants of the first annual Yoga Week. We look forward to the second Annual Yoga Week in September 2009.
