Heidi Crocker, EdD, DC, C-IAYT
Dr. Heidi Crocker has owned integrative wellness centers as part of her chiropractic and yoga therapy services over 30 years. It began with spinal care and pain management, evolving to be a component of all patients’ treatment plans. Eventually she added a yoga studio for public classes and yoga therapy for special populations such as pregnant women, cancer patients, and athletes.
Heidi is also an educator, with the mission to promote health at the community level and integrate mind body interventions throughout the healthcare delivery system. She believes that strengthening the practice of yoga in society will increase self-efficacy and improve overall health. She advocates training healthcare providers in yoga-based techniques for their own self-care and integrating yoga therapy as a modality in patient care will lead to social change within the healthcare system. She practices yoga therapy with AlcheMe Yoga Therapy in Orange County, CA. In addition, she serves as the Accreditation Manager at the International Association of Yoga Therapists and teaches in health professions education focusing on interprofessional collaboration as a key to lasting change.
