Yoga Gets into Med School

In this fascinating article from BU Today, the Boston University student newspaper, writer Leslie Friday profiles a new yoga class for medical students in her article "Yoga Gets into Med School." So far, the class has shown the students have not only reduced stress levels but increased positive thinking. All you med students on the Upper East Side, this one's for you! Come to class and let it all go.

  1. It is interesting to see that other universities now taking on yoga for medical students.

    While they may think it is unique, particularly at a higher intellectual level specific to medical students, Monash University in Melbourne Australia has run “Clinical Yoga” as an elective specifically tailored for medical students for the last 5-years. Monash also is the only university in the world to offer a BMedSc (Clinical Yoga) as a research-based honours degree for medical students to explore evidence-based applications of yoga in clinical practice.
