The Whole Person with Tiffany Cruikshank

Tiffany Cruikshank is a woman of many talents in the world of wellness. As a trouble maker in her early teens, she struggled to find purpose and meaning in her life. During that time, Tiffany discovered yoga and met an herbalist at a wilderness camp who would take her on plant walks, where she fell in love with learning how to use the environment around us to heal.  

Tiffany is the founder of Yoga Medicine, a community of teachers focused on fusing anatomy & western medicine with traditional yoga practices to serve the medical communities. She’s trained thousands of teachers around the world, has graced the cover of over 15 magazines, is a regularly featured expert in many major media outlets, the author of 2 books and has over 150 classes on various topics on With her background in Acupuncture, Sports Medicine and Women’s Health, Tiffany has worked with professional athletes & celebrities, run her own clinics, and created & ran the Acupuncture program at Nike WHQ in addition to teaching yoga there. Tiffany also founded & runs 2 nonprofits, one conducts research on yoga’s therapeutic benefits and the other supports a shelter for women rescued from trafficking in Delhi, India.

Today Tiffany and I discuss Chinese Medicine, the idea of bringing the whole person into balance to allow the body to be more resilient, and how yoga can be a great tool for teens as well as adults to combat stress and support both our mental health and our hormones.

Thank you so much for joining me today! I loved Tiffany’s suggestion to become the observer and to befriend our thoughts and judgments. By making peace with the layer of ourselves that judges everything, and empathizing with ourselves first, it makes it easier for us to empathize with the world around us.
