My resolution is to do more yoga and to stretch.

In the past, I've been of the mindset that you train hard to get better. Which to some extent is true. But, it's important to take care of your body too. Yoga helps to strengthen and stretch. Massage is good too. I think that a combination of massage and yoga has helped improve and nearly resolve a hip flexor strain that I had been dealing with over the past few months.
I am an Interventional Cardiologist practicing in the Los Angeles area. I believe that lifestyle -- including diet and exercise -- are crucial parts of our health and well-being. Here, I share my insights on medicine, ideas and information about vegan diets, and my triathlon training adventures.
