Dr. Sat Bir Singh Khalsa to Present Research on Relieving Physician Burnout with Yoga Science at American Meditation Institute’s 11th Annual CME Conference
Date:5/7/2019

Noted researcher on mind/body medicine and yoga therapy, Sat Bir Singh Khalsa PhD, will join the faculty of The American Meditation Institute (AMI) for a 31-credit hour mind/body medicine CME conference for physicians and other health care professionals, October 22-26, 2019 at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts. Entitled The Heart and Science of Yoga, this 11th annual comprehensive training, accredited through the American Medical Association and Albany Medical College, is designed to help identify, prevent and relieve physician stress and burnout.

Now in its eleventh year of providing physicians continuing medical education credits, this comprehensive curriculum of Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine will present a unique, in-depth study of practical AMI Meditation skills designed to help relieve physician burnout by reducing their allostatic load––the physiological consequences of chronic exposure to fluctuating or heightened neural or neuroendocrine responses resulting from chronic stress.

Presenter Sat Bir Singh Khalsa, PhD, has conducted scientific yoga research since 2001 and is Director of Research for the Kundalini Research Institute, and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. He has researched the effects of Yoga Science on insomnia, stress and anxiety disorders in both workplace and school settings. He coordinates the annual “Symposium on Yoga Research,” is editor-in-chief of the “International Journal of Yoga Therapy,” author of the Harvard ebook “Your Brain on Yoga,” and chief editor of the medical textbook “The Principles and Practice of Yoga in Health Care.”

Dr. Khalsa’s participation at this year’s “Heart and Science of Yoga” conference will include a lecture entitled “Yoga: Mind/Body Connection and Research." In describing his work, Dr. Khalsa has stated, “I am keenly aware of the strong and credible science and research evidence showing that yoga and yoga therapy are highly effective at improving physical and mental fitness, self-regulation of stress and emotion, mind/body awareness and mindfulness, and even spirituality, life meaning and purpose. Through their effects on the underlying root causes of disease, yogic practices can reliably reduce symptom severity and, in some disorders, can actually reverse the disease process and restore complete health.”

The entire “Heart and Science of Yoga” CME curriculum provides quality, comprehensive and evidence-based education to physicians and other health care providers on Yoga Science as mind/body medicine. Topics this year will include an overview and instruction on AMI MEDITATION, diaphragmatic breathing, mantra science, yoga psychology, resiliency, mind function optimization, Epigenetics and lifestyle choices, Ayurveda, food as medicine, easy-gentle yoga, lymph system detoxification, and the chakra system as a diagnostic tool.

The dedication, enthusiasm, and teaching methodology of the entire AMI faculty create a dynamic and interactive course for their students. Each faculty member is committed to the advancement and training of Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine. In addition to Dr. Khalsa, other presenters will include Leonard Perlmutter, AMI founder; Robert Schneider MD, Dean of the College of Integrative Medicine and Director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University; Anthony Santilli MD, board-certified in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine; Susan Lord MD, a private practice holistic physician focusing on prevention and treatment, and former course director for the The Center for Mind-Body Medicine’s “Food As Medicine” program in Washington, DC; Jesse Ritvo MD, Assistant Medical Director, Inpatient Psychiatry, University of Vermont Health Center; Renee Rodriguez-Goodemote, MD, Medical Director of the Saratoga Hospital Community Health Center; Joshua Zamer, MD, Medical Director for Addiction Medicine at Saratoga Hospital Community Health Center and Chairman of the Department of Family Practice; Anita Burock-Stotts, MD, board certified in Internal Medicine; Kristin Kaelber MD, PhD, board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics; Janine Pardo MD, board certified in Internal Medicine; Gustavo Grodnitzky PhD, Chair of the AMI Psychological Education Committee; Jenness Cortez Perlmutter, faculty member of The American Meditation Institute, and Lee Albert, NMT, acclaimed neuromuscular therapist and gentle yoga instructor.

According to last year’s attendee, Keyvan Hariri MD, Family Medicine, California, “This conference has been transformational, inspiring and self-empowering. I highly recommend this retreat for every physician and healthcare practitioner.”
