Yoga and Chiropractic

Chiropractic adjustments restore healthy joint mechanics. Tight muscles are not the only reason for restricted and limited ranges of motion. Improper joint alignment, ‘stuck’ joints, and postural imbalances are also reasons for loss of range of motion and lack of flexibility. Chiropractic care is a beneficial complement to yoga. Muscles attach to bones to allow joints to move. Chiropractic adjustments restore joint function allowing muscles to easily move our joints through a normal pain free range of motion.

Willow Tree Yoga has aligned with a local chiropractor in order to offer our students education in the full care and maintenance of their spinal health, and diagnosis and treatment of any imbalances, injuries or alignment issues that may prevent the unfolding of muscular and joint flexibility.

Our local Chiropractor is Dr. Paul Lentini of Bardonia Chiropractics. Dr. Lentini graduated cum laude from New York Chiropractic College in 1993 and is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner. He has maintained and managed a successful chiropractic practice in Bardonia, New York since 1996. He and his practice, Bardonia Chiropractic Office, commit themselves to excellence, to educate, and to serve the community. Dr. Lentini’s focus of his practice is to improve the quality of his patient’s lives by transforming critical care to wellness care. His postgraduate training includes professional and personal development, biomechanics, orthopedics, and pediatrics. Dr. Lentini was a columnist for New York Sportscene, a tri-state sports magazine.

He is active and a leader in his community. He has completed the course study Leadership Rockland. He is a Rotarian and past president of the Clarkstown Sunrise Rotary Club. He is a recipient of the Rockland Business Association ’40 Under 40 Achievement Award, Clarkstown Sunrise Rotary Award for Commitment to 9/11 Heroes, New York State Horse Council Humanitarian Award and is a Paul Harris Fellow of Rotary International. Dr. Lentini volunteered for 8 months at St. Paul’s chapel following the tragedy of 9/11 caring for the men and women involved in the rescue and recovery efforts.

Dr. Lentini resides in his home office with his wife, Annmarie, and their two children. He finds balance by landscaping, rock climbing, and adventuring with his family.
