Yoga has many benefits! BUT…Our favorite five will make want to grab a mat and get your zen on!
Yoga Loving Reason #1: Rehabilitation
The yoga classes we have available for you at our East-West Healing Solutions Studio are perfect for those recovering from a sports injury. Our classes are designed with modification in mind! In this type of class, our instructors use props to protect sensitive areas to prevent injury or injury recurrence.
Yoga Loving Reason #2: Restoration
Yoga utilizing props and poses that promote relaxation helps to restore the body to a less stressed state. Once the body is relaxed and calm it can restore itself and those who practice yoga begin to enjoy the benefits of headaches dissipating, tension in muscles easing, blood pressure and heart rate lowering. Yoga for restoration is a popular reason why many seek out yoga classes
Yoga Loving Reason #3: Safety
The yoga instructors at East West Healing Solutions are specially trained with safety in mind! Our instructors pay special attention to the needs and limitations our yoga students may have, especially those who are recovering from an injury due to an accident or sports-related injuries.
Yoga Loving Reason #4: Strength
Attending yoga classes after surgery, an accident or a sports injury can be incredibly beneficial especially if one of your goals is to improve strength. Our yoga instructors at East West Healing Solutions work closely with our students to make sure they are achieving the goals they have set for practicing yoga.
Yoga Loving Reason #5: Flexibility
One major benefit that people report after taking yoga is increased flexibility. Flexibility is important as it reduces the chance of future injury, it improves posture, and it helps to improve athletic performance.

Dr. Marie Perkins, OTR/L, LMT, DOM, Dipl. Ac. is one of the most recognized practitioners in Palm Harbor as a “non-pharmaceutical” pain specialist.
Born and raised in Quebec City Canada, Dr. Perkins received her Bachelor Degree in Occupational Therapy from University Laval in 1993.
Her passion led her to leave everything behind and immigrated to Florida in 1995. She proceeded with acquiring her Massage Therapy license from Bahkti Academy in 1999 and her Master’s Degree in Oriental Medicine from the Florida Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine in 2004.
Her goal for founding East West Healing Solutions was to be a pioneer in the community working at bridging the gap between Eastern and Western Medicine. She has established strong partnership with Medical Doctors, Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, Orthopedic Surgeons, Neurologists, Pain Management Physicians, Doctors of Chiropractic, Rehabilitative Specialists, Athletic Directors, Coaches and Personal Injury Attorneys in the community proving not only that it can be done but also that a cohesive team approach is often the most efficient way to help a patient.
“Over the years I have continued to add to my knowledge in order to be able to help as many patients I possibly could. Most of the time, a joint effort from Western and Eastern Medicine is required to obtain optimal health. For that reason, patients should proactively seek a team of highly trained professionals in various fields, all working toward one common goal; the PATIENT’S best interest. Your health portfolio should be built with the same concepts as your financial portfolio; diversification is the key!,” Dr. Marie Perkins tells her patients.
