I was pregnant for 40 weeks and 6 days…that’s 286 days, 6,864 hours or 411,840 minutes…and I L-O-V-E-D every single minute of it! Aside from holding my son for the first time and falling in love with Charles, these were the greatest minutes, hours and […]

*~Finding My Way Back~*

The truth is, I just needed a break. I needed a break from everything…from being MD, the yoga instructor, the blogger, the ‘perfect’ yogini, and from being the always happy ray of light. Life got really hard. I needed to take a hiatus to find […]

When Your Spouse Is *Also* Your Yoga Instructor

When Your Spouse Is *Also* Your Yoga Instructor

I never thought that when I started this yoga journey I would end up fraternizing with-and then shacking up with my yoga teacher. But it happened. And 4 years later, here we are….still together…and now both teachers! It’s a romantic story of sweaty mats and […]

~* A Yogi’s Trip Home *~

A couple of weekends back I was visiting my beautiful home state of Arizona. It is sometimes difficult for me to return home for visits due to the demanding schedule of a resident and also the fact that the 4.5 hour flight from one coast […]

Let me preface this with I am not a studio owner and all the following are only MY observations and opinions…..I write of no particular studios as this phenomenon is something that transcends all types of yoga and all types of studios. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ When I decided […]


Hi, I Am The Yoga•Doc•MD!

Hi There…

Hi There…

My name is Patricia D. Pittman, I am Yoga•Doc•MD! I started my yoga journey as a 2nd year medical student in Tempe, AZ and I have continued with this practice ever since. I became a certified Bikram Yoga instructor in the Spring of 2015 in the beautiful country of Thailand. I have found that a consistent practice has helped to balance my brain when I am overly stressed at the office or going through this roller-coaster thing called life.  Professionally, I am a 3rd year pathology resident at one of the greatest hospitals in the United States. I love my day job! I have wanted to be a doctor ever since I was a little girl but never quite knew which direction my life would take me. When I found pathology, I knew it was my calling. I hope you will follow along here as we explore life, loss and celebration together. Please feel free to look around and enjoy your stay. ~Much Love & Namaste~
