“In this course, I learned a great deal about yoga and its effectiveness in the rehab world. I am astonished that with such documented evidence of the effects of yoga, it hasn’t become incorporated in every therapy clinic/department. I hope we as a class of therapists help to change that (of course with Kim’s brilliant support). Thank you, Kim, for your support of the therapists and our instruction in yoga practice benefits to those who long to contribute!”

(Danielle Vanorski, PT)


“After taking the Revolutionary Yoga Rehabilitation Workshop, I started a Yoga Rehab DVD rental program at our clinic where patients pay $10 to have the DVD for home use for 2 weeks. My patients really enjoy the DVDs and find them a great complement to Physical Therapy. We rent between 5-15 DVDs per month so purchasing the bundle more than pays for itself!”

(Brent Cesare, DPT and owner of Zenergy Physical Therapy Inc, San Diego, CA)

Patient review:

“I have been to 3 or 4 different PT clinics on the East Coast over the past 2 years after my neck fusion. If I lower my head, it’s very painful to lift. This is the firs time I have had any relief from the pain. Dr. Kim’s yoga exercises helped me when nothing else has.”

(Hoot Sullivan, Long Island, New York)
