Course Description

The practice of yoga asana (physical practice of yoga) is one of the eight limbs of yogic philosophy with the ultimate goal of quieting the mind and allowing a deeper connection to one’s inner wisdom and peace. Practicing asanas with friends and colleagues who share the responsibility and pressures of surgical careers offers the rare opportunity to recognize community through shared inhalations, exhalations, challenging flow, and guiding intentions.

Come practice with one of three Certified Yoga Teachers (Day-job: Gynecologic Surgeons) on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for 45-minute practices in order to start your day ready to learn after a great flow-based practice that will leave you feeling invigorated!

More importantly, please join us also for a special co-taught 1-hour flow practice on Monday from 6:00 am to 7:00 am.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to: 1) Apply pranayama (breathing techniques) that can be used to quiet the mind when experiencing the daily challenges as surgeons.
