Mind-body hygiene

This month’s Yoga Journal has a nice article about Sat Bir Khalsa, a researcher and assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School who has dedicated his career to researching yoga. I like how he talks about yoga as mind-body hygiene:

“I think of this as hygiene. We have dental hygiene, which is a well-accepted part of American culture. Schools teach it, doctors recommend it, parents reinforce it. Imagine if people didn’t routinely brush their teeth. That would be unheard of in this country! But what about mind-body hygiene? We have nothing for that.”
