Do the work. There's so much to learn.
Why I Practice
Yoga is a valuable tool for bridging the gap between mindfulness and healthcare. I practice because of the tangible, measurable benefits of smart physical movement, and self-reflection.
Why I Teach
Initially, I began teaching simply as a way to shake off my rough shifts on the ambulance. It felt good to be amongst light-hearted, like-minded folks. As my healthcare career continues to evolve into primary care and psychiatry, my teachings are shifting as well. I believe in the positive aspects of a well-rounded yoga practice and all it can do for the practitioner -- from the people it can bring into our lives, even down to the ways it encourages us to examine our eating habits and our passing thoughts.
