Why Yoga in a Chiropractic Office?

Dr. Putnam discovered the benefits of yoga personally and began to view it through the lens of a physical medicine physician. She realized yoga can be subtle or demanding and therefore can be applied to almost all body types. Different poses highlight muscle imbalances and yoga becomes a diagnostic tool. Other poses offer rehabilitative qualities that are especially good for stabilizing spine and joint conditions. Yoga as a class may not be for everyone, yet, Dr. Putnam’s ability to see injury and rehabilitation with the influence of yoga broadens healing avenues for those who have not previously considered it for themselves.

Is Yoga for Me?

Yoga is for everyone, whether you are old or young, coordinated or not, short, tall, an athlete or a couch potato. It is accessible to all body types, shapes and ages. Consider yoga if you are seeking health and wellness and want to improve your physical and mental wellbeing. Yoga can be as restful or as rigorous as you want it to be and modification can be provided for most body types and health conditions. The benefits include core strengthening, toning, improved balance and feeling more relaxed and connected to your physical and emotional body.

  • Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early before your first class to fill out new member consent form.
