Dr Joan Vernikos – Yoga in Space

Dr. Joan Vernikos is the former Head of NASA Space Health Program and part of the Taksha Space Health and Aging Institute (TSHAI), an organization that specializes in cross-cutting short courses, lectures, seminars, workshops and conferences that bring together experts in apparently disparate fields to find common links across the physiology and behavior of the broadest range of human conditions. They are trying to bring Yoga Therapy as an alternate therapeutic modality to the attention of both NASA and commercial space flight companies as to how YT protocol can really benefit the health of the crew and space travelers in pre-, during, and post-flight phases, especially since millions of dollars worth of equipment used has not been able to sop the adverse health effects.
