Article in the Press: Yoga therapy DYADS: A novel approach to chronic pain management in underserved populations

As a Yoga Therapist Provider I was working at primarily 2 clinical sites, IFH in Harlem and Montefiore Williamsbridge in the Bronx with patients who had acute and chronic back or neck pain, and / or osteoarthritis.


Some sessions were 1:1 and others were dyads both in English and Spanish.

Our Wellness Team had a weekly check in to follow up on the week's treatments.


Our Dyad model was a feasibility trial combining Yoga and Acupuncture Therapy per patient for chronic pain in an under served population.


Although we could not complete the full 10 weeks last March due to Covid-19 with some patients, thankfully we gathered enough data for these findings.


I have made some lifelong friends with some of my fellow colleagues

and I am looking forward to future collaboration with them

and continuing my current Yoga Therapy Projects.



The practice of Therapeutic Yoga beautifully weaves gentle Hatha yoga, restorative yoga (supported postures), conscious breath work, energetic touch, hands-on healing, guided meditation, stress and pain management techniques.This intact healing system supports health and wellness throughout our life cycles including illness, injury and surgery.


Therapeutic Yoga is a perfect counterbalance for those who simply want to slow down. Therapeutic Yoga is a deeply meditative experience - it provides the opportunity to step away from the busy-ness of the outside world and cultivate versatile and portable healing techniques. By moving and resting into dynamic stillness throughout the layers of the physical body, emotions and thoughts we can return to our ease and peace. Our undivided self unveils the jewels of innermost quietude and contentment.

After the initial intake and assessment, Dolores will provide a safe and nurturing practice specific to your concerns within the class or one on one setting.
