Blending Yoga with Medicine for Greater Health

Complementary/alternative forms of wellness such as yoga are being increasingly used as a part of doctors’ whole-person treatment of their patients. At Breathe Yoga & Wellness, we refer to this as Whole-Person Health or blended health, because we draw from several models of care that are being researched and implemented around the globe. We support medical pain management, anxiety and inflammation reduction, and a host of preventative and treatment plans.
