Dr. Lynn Crocker and her husband, Dr. Vance Crocker, are both healers in the traditional sense of Western medicine. Lynn Crocker is the Chief Hospitalist at Christus Spohn Shoreline and Spohn South hospitals, where she works every day with patients who are critically ill or who may be recovering from other serious illnesses or surgery. Vance Crocker is a Corpus Christi dentist who often treats patients who stress out about coming to the dentist.
Kundalini Yoga teaches a variety of breathing techniques that have specific purposes, such as releasing tension, calming the nervous system, improving cognition, and producing quick energy. Kundalini also instructs practitioners about the ten bodies which make up the human body. These include the physical body, three mental bodies, and six energy bodies. Additionally, this style of yoga emphasizes the benefits of eating the proper foods and chanting.
In a recent Saturday morning class, which consisted mainly of Kundalini Yoga teachers, the response was enthusiastic. Most who attended were physicians, nurses, and others who work directly with patients. One student had recently undergone a double lung transplant and had seen the healing benefits first hand. A nursing student in the group had used the breathing techniques to help her patients.
“So, it’s a very complete technology that’s in every set we do. It’s very transformational. It’s not for everybody, but it’s been very special for me, as you can tell from the stories that people shared,” said Lynn Crocker, who is a doctor of osteopathic medicine and is board certified in internal medicine.
Vance Crocker explained the science behind yoga. “There have been cerebral blood flow studies about this particular practice. And you can actually see the infusion of blood flow into the area that has atrophied. And it actually nourishes it and actually starts morphing.
