Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health and well-being through the application of the philosophy and practice of Yoga.--International Association of Yoga Therapists
Dr Hari Kirin Kaur Khalsa (Diane Pingeton, MD) has served as a nurses' aide, a registered nurse, as a physician and a Kundalini yoga and meditaton teacher. She is currently working on her certification as a yoga therapist in the tradition of Kundalini Yoga, via the Guru Ram Das Center for Medicine and Humanology in Espanola, NM, where she also serves as faculty. This process will take several years under the guidelines from the International Association of Yoga Therapists. She has seen how this ancient technology can help people feel more in control of their own health and well being. Yoga therapy is not designed to replace medical care by any means, but it is designed to work in conjunction with regular medical care, in order to help people feel better. Dr Khalsa looks forward to collaborating with her colleagues in allopathic (traditional Western) medicine to research the effects of Kundalini yoga and meditation on specific health conditions. It is all about feeling better!
Yoga was not created as a therapeutic tool, however it use can be helpful in so many situations of health and health challenges.
