Doctors for Yoga - Global Forum
Share your experiences of yoga, breathing exercises, and meditation!
Are you a doctor or other certified healthcare professional such as a pharmacist, nurse, chiropractor, or PhD?
Do you recommend or practice yoga, breathing techniques, or meditation?
If so, please share your yoga experiences here on our Doctors for Yoga forum. You will be helping thousands of people around the world take up yoga and experience a higher quality of life.
Many healthcare professionals have taken up yoga and experience its benefits. They also recommended yoga to their patients and see positive results. (But not always.)
RightYoga facilitates and encourages healthcare professionals to share and discuss their experiences - positive and negative - with other healthcare experts, yogis and patients on an international platform.
RightYoga promotes holistic teamwork. Science and alternative medicine should work together to heal our world. Yogis, doctors, pharmacists, nurses, chiropractors etc. need to work together.
RightYoga has a vision of healing the world through the rapid spread of yoga – on an evidence-based, safe and sound medical foundation.
RightYoga recognizes that not all things are ‘bad’ about modern medicine. Modern medicine is as much a lifesaver as alternative treatments in other situations.
This is why RightYoga’s certified instructors pledge an Oath to:
“Refer my students to medically certified healthcare professionals if in any doubt about their physical or mental condition – and refuse to teach yoga to such students until appropriate approval has been acquired.”
“Yogis sometimes need doctors. Doctors sometimes need yogis,” says our founder Sanjay C Patel.
