This qualitative study fills a research gap and provides insight into how and why OT practitioners currently use yoga to benefit clients with multiple sclerosis. The following themes emerged through thematic data analysis of eight semistructured interviews: (1) OT and yoga are a natural and complementary fit, (2) holistic benefits for clients beyond therapy, (3) leveraging personal ties to yoga, and (4) use of yoga is dependent on client factors and clinical environment.
