New Trend in Natural Healthcare: Yoga Nursing
Yoga, an ancient physical and spiritual discipline and branch of philosophy, is now being used as a form of therapy for everything from heart disease and cancer to work-related stress. Annette Tersigni, known as the Yoga Nurse, has combined her registered nursing degree with the principles of medical yoga and Ayurveda, the science of life and longevity, to help anyone dealing with stress. Yoga uses poses, focused concentration on specific body parts, and breathing techniques to integrate the body, mind and soul and has been found to have tremendous healing power.
Annette was once a Hollywood model and actress living a glamorous life, but while still enjoying a successful livelihood she felt inspired to do something more with her life. This feeling led her to become a registered nurse, move to the East Coast and start her nursing career in the cardiac unit of a local North Carolina hospital. Annette first started using her therapeutic skills to help her co-workers deal with daily job stress. She then began incorporating yoga and meditation as forms of therapy with her patients and saw excellent results. Annette realized integrating her yoga and nursing skills was a valuable service that could benefit patients and people from all walks of life. With that in mind, Annette founded Yoga Nurse Medical Yoga and Stress Management and created the new field of Yoga Nursing and the Yoga Nursing Institute.
Annette makes yoga accessible to people at all levels, creating a safe and comfortable environment to lower stress and pursue balance, healing and inner strength. Her programs are endorsed by many doctors and health care providers as a safe therapy to increase the quality of life. She is now a sought- after speaker and educator and gives workshops, retreats, and seminars throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. Stress management now has a new name…yoga nursing.
