Yoga

I have been practicing yoga for 25 years and have been a certified instructor for 17 years.  I lived at a yoga ashram between medical school and residency for a full immersion in the yogic lifestyle, practice, and philosophy.  I wrote a book chapter on "Mindfulness, Meditation, & Yoga" for the Handbook of Wellness Medicine (Cambridge U Press, 2020). Yoga is a big part of my life. 

 

PRIVATE INSTRUCTION:  I am planning to design a special 6 week yoga + coaching + nutrition + meditation program.  For now, I offer private yoga instruction online or in person.  Sessions can ideally be combined with psychotherapy or health/spiritual coaching for a more powerful experience.  Contact me to discuss.

I was recently featured on the Female Physician Entrepreneurs Facebook page for my yoga practice, as well as my unique astro-medical work offerings and nomadic lifestyle.  This is a video I created for that feature.  It was filmed in Sayulita, Mex.  If interested in yoga, you might enjoy my Instagram page, as well.

I am not the most flexible yogi ever, but yoga is not a competition!  It is a personal path and practice that shows you your own potential and takes you into a deeper relationship with your mind, body, and spirit.  Having compassion for your own limitations, while simultaneously watching your capacity grow, is one of the most beautiful gifts of yoga.  I have been practicing in a studio for about 5-6 days per week for the past six months in Nosara + Santa Teresa, Costa Rica and Sayulita, Mexico.  This is the most intense and dedicated practice I have had since my time at the ashram (though for much of the past 20 years I have done a basic home practice most days).  Still, I have come to think of 2021 as my "year of yoga". 

I have given yoga a lot of my attention, and it has blissfully blessed me in return!!
