Yoga Flow for the Dental Pro

This post is brought to you by Dr. David Hennington, certified yoga instructor and owner of Trade Winds Dental

The daily physical, mental and emotional challenges of the dental profession can take a serious toll on our bodies and minds. A regular yoga routine helps alleviate these stressors and brings numerous benefits to the practitioner.  These include:

  • An improved ability to deal with difficult situations with a greater sense of calm;
  • Increased strength and flexibility of both body and mind
  • Mitigation of the musculoskeletal concerns commonly associated with the dental profession.

Because of my personal experience with the benefits of yoga as a dentist, I decided to share its benefits with my colleagues by developing a yoga sequence specifically designed to address many of the physical/mental/emotional issues that are commonly experienced by dental team members.

Never been to a yoga class? No problem! This sequence is friendly for the beginner and seasoned yogi alike, and is a great introduction if this is your first yoga experience.

Practicing portions of this sequence can be done in as little as 15 minutes a day. The set can also be extended partially or to full length for a greater overall effect. It’s a great way to start or end the day and prepare your mind and body for doing the kind of dentistry you love to do!
