Doctors and their understanding of yoga is often….
After teaching this morning, one of my student shared with me that she has osteoporosis and her Doctor told her to stay away from yoga.
The ignorance of some doctors doesn’t stop to surprise me. I was chocked. It is completely the opposite!
It is so beneficiary that with daily yoga practice under the guidance of a good teacher that know the body and the disease, yoga can prevent it, slow the process and even is some cases reverse it. Medication is only putting a band-aid on the problem. You need so much more but it requires the mental straight and dedication to resolve the issue.
