Med students at Boston University School of Medicine are learning yoga relaxation techniques for stress. The faculty and instructors who launched the class hope these future doctors will be able to exploit their knowledge of yoga and its research-based benefits to someday help patients and to feel as comfortable prescribing yoga as they do Prozac. In fact, Saper, as a burnt-out medical student, took a year off to study at Kripalu, the yoga retreat in western, Mass. The thought of doctors prescribing yoga relaxation techniques for stress is an encouraging one!

A freelance graphic designer by trade, she welcomes you to join her on this journey to learn more about the healthful practice of yoga.
Now Boston U is teaching yoga poses and their health benefits to these future doctors – for their own health, and that of their patients to come. Rather than trying to contort yourself into a pretzel, focus on how your mind and emotions feel when you do Yoga.
