Our Story

Our Story

I'm David, I would like to share the unique story of how I founded Yoga.Health.

Several years ago our original team emerged to build a post TKA (total knee arthroplasty) digital wearable to collect patient range of motion data for mobility research. Preparing for NIH and Veteran Affair’s first round of clinical trials, my role as CMO and product director was product-market adoption, and patient adoption during their months of post-surgical recovery.

The research findings on post-surgical patient experience were discouraging; the average American’s health condition and motivation who needed knee replacement was so poor; therapy and recovery patient protocol abandonment was high, and comorbidities caused product variable complexities. Ultimately making the project very difficult to find a likely success path for the patient, a critical cohort of the study. The project closed in large losses of time and resources.

 

Yet, I found a shining light in the corners of the research. Study after study indicated that movement/ exercise, yoga in particular for self-motivated patients as the best over-all complementary form of exercise for post-surgical rehabilitation. In addition, and not surprisingly, almost every independent peer reviewed study from universities documented that yoga could significantly improve post-TKA patient mood during bouts of pain, improved sleep, range of motion and balance. All bringing the patient to a speedier recovery and longer span of post-TKA quality of life.

"...Yoga.Health has found its purpose, and that’s you."

So personally, I know how I feel when I unroll that sacred mat, but finding the claims in research made me appreciate how a therapeutic yoga practice really means over one’s lifespan.

 

Yoga.Health later launched in 2020 and while building the brand, challenges persisted. From the beginning, my team and I worked through the 2018 Velvet Revolution, the pandemic, two wars, several deaths, and floods. But as one of my favorite Broadway performers; Elaine Stritch has famously sung; “Good times and bum times, I’ve seen it all and my dear, I’m still hear…” (Follies, 1971, Stephen Soundheim).

Well, we are still here and stronger as each month goes by. Selectively our partnerships, product offerings and team grow with the research to bring useful solutions for potentially millions of people.

 

I love my work in Yoga.Health and the happiness it brings to my life.

Furthermore, my heart is filled with gratitude to everyone I’ve worked with and the champions still who are a part of our team. Yoga.Health has found its purpose, and that’s you.

Lastly to our customers, thank you so very much for allowing us to serve you in your journey healthier living and better life, your appreciation is our reward. If we can help you more, please reach out.

David
