29 Jan Episode 41: Interview With Tatiana Miller
Welcome to Episode 41, Interview With Tatiana Miller! Tatti offers yoga therapy at Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth, where she has made it her life’s passion to integrate yoga therapy with western medicine. She came to yoga at a young age indirectly as a result of her sister’s death in a car accident, when it was recommended by a therapist she was seeing to help her work through her own trauma of learning to drive.
Tatti studied holistic medicine and yoga therapy and has taught for more than 18 years. As a one-time pharmaceutical rep, she has witnessed first-hand the limits of western medicine and pain management.
Yoga therapy is a new modality of medicine in the United States. In its true form, yoga is not simply exercise but a therapy meant to work your body so you can sit and meditate and, in that stillness, find yourself.
Tatti also runs a nonprofit as a vehicle to help spread the gospel of yoga therapy at RX4LifeMovement. Check it out!
