Thanks for tuning in!
Today, I wanted to introduce a new friend, Dr. Shivani Kamodia Barto. We connected over a fun conversation on Health, wellness and mindfulness through meditative and yoga practices.
This will be an interesting peek seen through the eyes of a yoga instructor who began her study of it even before she started dental school and has been observing how yoga can be beneficial. She’s also someone who is ever evolving her practice to include more ways to help heal the healer.
As dentists, we are often giving a good deal of our time and energy in more ways than just in our dental practice. This can be draining and isn’t a great sustainable plan to continue burning the candle from both ends. Often, the way to mitigate this is if we include self-care in a way that feeds the body and the soul through movement and breath work.
What I think is an interesting perspective to have for those go-getters out there is Why burnout will actually COST you and is a reminder to seek balance in our practice as soon as we can!
Yoga is not just a way to strengthen our bodies, it can strengthen our mind and be seen as a type of moving meditation. In this episode we get into how the world of dentistry, breath work and yoga collide and how it benefits both patient and provider.
We also dive in to her wonderful retreat for dentists who need to find a way to refill their cup, so-to-speak, and be pampered and taken care of because we often forget how to do this. Alright, lets get into the episode!
