Sample text

So for the next decade, I took a post-doctoral position at the University of Virginia studying circadian rhythms and sleep, followed by five years of post-doctoral research at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. While this was fascinating and rewarding research, my ultimate goal was to align my research with my interest in yoga. In the late nineties, the academic medical world had become increasingly accepting of alternative medicine practices. As a result, the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) came into being within the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and began offering research grant opportunities.

This grant finally allowed me to begin my yoga research career in earnest and at long last (a full 25 years later) my dream finally came true. I am currently an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, and a neuroscientist at the Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. My research focuses on the clinical effectiveness of yoga and meditation techniques on a variety of disorders, including insomnia, anxiety, depression, chronic stress, and post-traumatic stress disorder, among others, although I have now become very deeply interested in evaluating the efficacy of yoga in school settings with children and adolescents for both mental and physical health and prevention.

I finally reached a point in my understanding when I realized it was time to stop reading and start doing. I happened to walk into a student lounge where a few friends were talking about a new yoga course being offered for credit at the University; and the synchronicity was too good to ignore. I went to my first yoga class, where the teacher was instructing in the style of Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan—and I never looked back. I continue to practice Kundalini Yoga today, which is one of the more contemplative and meditative forms of yoga with a strong focus on cultivating one’s inner development, awareness/mindfulness, and creative spiritual potential that incorporates the full range of practices in traditional yoga.
