Dr. Sandra Amrita McLanahan, MD

Integrative medical physician, Sandra 'Amrita' McLanahan, M.D., has for many years been the nation's leading expert on the medical benefits of yoga. Executive Medical Director of the Integral Health Center in Buckingham, Virginia, she has also served for 20 years as Director of Stress Management Training for the Preventative Medicine Research Institute, where she was a crucial part of the research team led by Dean Ornish, M.D., which established, in studies published in The Lancet and The Journal of the American Medical Association, that heart disease is reversable by a combination of low-fat, high fiber vegetarian diet, yoga, meditation, and group support.

McLanahan is a 1968 magna cum laude graduate of Swarthmore College, received her M.D. from Wayne State University, and completed a residency in Family Practice at the University of Massachussetts. Aside from her work with the Integral Health Center and the Preventive Medicine Research Institute, Dr. McLanahan was among the founders of the pioneering Commonwel Cancer Help Program.

Her most recent book, Surgery and Its Alternatives, co-authored with her brother David McLanahan, M.D., a surgeon, is a highly-praised unique and comprehensive guide for people facing the possible need for surgery, and is a must-read for their caregivers as well. The doctors McLanahan cover 200 different diseases for which surgery is sometimes necessary, describing the causes of each disease (including dietary and stress factors) and presenting alternatives to surgery as well as complementary medicine approaches that can be utilized along with surgery.

Amrita is renowned as one of the premier speakers on the subjects of yoga and health. Those attending the Benefit Luncheon receive a surprise gift to take home from the event.

Watch these excellent videos of Dr. McLanahan teaching:

Here is one of those comments...

To even comprehend the immensity of what is being offered here at ATT, to use this knowledge and practice will take a lifetime. ATT has taught me to pay attention, to check the posture, taking a few moments to notice the difference, to feel and make that small adjustment. And it is such a sense of fulfillment when I take this attitude to the class I teach, and help someone notice, to feel the difference in breath, to adjust the posture. Really in the Asanas, Pranayama, Deep Relaxation, Swadhyaya everything teaches about what is happening within constantly and learning to be aware of it all the time.  Every special assignment has been pure joy to do. The mountain pose always has a special place in my heart. When I'm in this posture all the elements, the body alignment, the breadth, the energy, when done absolutely in the right way, everything that is worth knowing can be known from within. The asana if done in perfection will bring the body to such a state of ease that one does not realize whether the body exists or not. After learning about Sukha Purvaka for the first time, started to practice it along with Swadhyaya. It felt like reaching home, a place one naturally ends up with. Learning to cultivate the body, mind, energy, bringing it to certain level of preparation using this technique called Sukha Purvaka and then knowing that something is happening, blossoming within, leading to meditative state. Absolute stillness. I realize it is not about becoming an advanced level teacher, but the entire process with its depth and clarity helping me to become a yogi in the true sense. Learning never ends even as you teach you are always learning, always elevating the level of consciousness to the highest possibility.
