Yoga in Healthcare

This video about Matthew Sanford expresses what yoga really means to me.  This video was posted on facebook by one of my yoga instructors I frequented in LA, Joseph Seeman.  After watching the video on youtube, I really connected with it.  I really want to work in a rehabilitative environment as an SLP or an OT and understanding the mind-body connection is very important to me.  Sanford really seems to get it right.  He experienced a debilitating car crash and rather than being defined by his disability, he has chosen to focus on what he can do to increase his awareness of himself.  In my opinion, this is such an important aspect of healing and definitely should not be overlooked by physicians and OTs.
