An Essential Conference for Physician Wellness

This leading-edge 5-day Heart and Science of Yoga Conference presents practical and effective tools to help you as a physician or other healthcare provider to:

  • Relieve and prevent stress and burnout
  • Promote optimal health and resilience
  • Bring back the joy in medicine
  • Increase compassion and effectiveness in patient care
  • Increase personal and professional fulfillment

Physician Burnout Across the USA has Reached Crisis Proportions . . .

In a study conducted by the American Medical Association and the Mayo Clinic, researchers found that when compared to the general U.S. population, physicians:

  • Displayed higher rates of emotional exhaustion
  • Reported lower satisfaction with work-life balance

As a healthcare provider you’re called upon to provide the highest quality care.  In order to achieve this, your own optimal health, wellness, and work satisfaction are critical.

Yet tedious administrative tasks and increasing expectations concerning productivity and documentation can create enormous stress.

As a result, physician and health care providers like you are increasingly experiencing anxiety, fatigue, burnout, and depression.

Even if you’re not experiencing symptoms of stress right now, you know it’s in your best interest and in the interest of your patients that you stay healthy and find meaning in your work and in your personal life.

Who Should Attend This Conference

  • Physicians
  • Surgeons
  • Advanced Practitioners (NPs and PAs)
  • Integrative Medicine Practitioners
  • Psychologists
  • Nurses

  • You’re feeling stressed, drained, or exhausted
  • Your passion for work is waning as each day passes
  • You’re frustrated with increasing work expectations place upon you
  • You’re struggling with a mental or physical health condition
  • You want to learn proven holistic strategies for patient care
  • You want tools to prevent stress and burnout
  • You want greater emotional and spiritual fulfillment

If you resonate with any of the above, you’re not alone… and this unique conference for medical professionals can help!

This teaching has been an enormous benefit in my personal and professional life. I have less stress, more focus, and am able to serve my patients with greater clarity. It becomes surprisingly easy now to recognize the many clinical situations in which patients with somatic manifestations of ‘dis-ease’ could greatly benefit from Yoga Science.
