Yoga, just like any other form of osteopathic practice, focuses on preventive practices and medicine, including your body’s ability to self-heal. These principles render yoga a great tool you can use to stay healthy.
We’re Osteopathic Medicine Doctors (Dos) with a focus on assessing the effect of your environment and lifestyle on your health. We can help you adopt preventive health practices instead of simply treating symptoms.
We’ve undergone extensive clinical and postgraduate training prior to becoming fully licensed physicians. However, unlike other types of clinicians, Dos have unique requirements for physician training to be able to offer yoga classes.
We recommend that you engage in group yoga instead of practicing alone for the benefits that come in doing group exercises.
Whether you’re a professional athlete or a couch potato, and despite your fitness level or size, yoga is for everyone. The various types of yoga practices can be modified to your unique needs even as a beginner. Beginner yoga classes and yoga poses are available in every style and can be tailored to meet the unique needs out there. Yoga isn’t about perfection but exploring your limits with the aim of turning your inner self and body.
