Lifestyle Medicine and Natural Healing

Health is Your Birthright

LIFESTYLE MEDICINE

Experience for yourself the benefits of a daily combination of these time-tested Yoga techniques and get back your positive health. Health is in your hands and in the hands of Mother Nature. It is not in the hands of the doctors and the big Pharmaceutical companies who only address symptoms.

Health is your birthright. It is natural to be healthy. There are three levels to positive health: body, mind, spirit. Learn how these levels of our being interact with each other and influence each other. Health and healing is not just dealing with symptoms.

Dr. Timothy McCall, author of Yoga as Medicine, describes the health benefits and stress reduction that comes from practicing Yoga.
