“The science and practice of yoga at CHC: 2011-2016.”



Jeff Hush gave this lecture about yoga in health care to clinical and admin staff at CHC (675 Main St, Middletown, CT) on Friday, June 24th, 2016. Rachel Hedrick spoke about health care instead of medical care, drawing on her experience as a massage therapist about a decade ago. Rachel also prepared an organic, vegan meal for the staff. 


Steven Macri (29 from Meriden) spoke about his experience of doing yoga at CHC for the past four months with Jeff. Steven has also joined Rachel’s “Healthy Bites” food class, started on June 2nd at CHC New Britain, and in the past month he has become a vegetarian. The key concept that hooked Steve into yoga at the beginning was Jeff’s phrase “to lengthen the muscles is to strengthen them.” Steve spoke to CHC staff about how his new food and movement lifestyle makes him feel much healthier and is great training for his long distance hiking. He plans to hike the entire Appalachian Trail with his dog, Kilua, in 2017.
