Dr. Carmen Chornell is a Family Physician and Certified Yoga and Meditation Instructor. During medical school in Edmonton she completed yoga training from Rameen Peyrow at the Sattva School of Yoga. She then completed her Family Medicine Residency in Nanaimo through UBC. She has special interest in addictions, sports medicine, and mental health. Dr. Chornell is leading interesting, educational and embodied Group Medical Visits called Food as Medicine and Exercise as Medicine as well as yoga classes and workshops both virtually and in-person.
Dr. Chornell focuses on meditative self-inquiry and self-compassion to dive deeper into the root of one’s suffering as a means to liberation. Rather than focusing on medications, her medical practice supports quieting the mind through breath work and somatic techniques, along with using food and exercise as important adjuncts for wholesome healing. She strives to create a space that allows others to listen to their own intelligence within.
