Dr. Dhond Shares Meditation Tips

Posted: June 30, 2020

With pandemic panic in the air, a NorthBay Healthcare cardiologist decided to put his skills to work, recording meditation videos for all who want to learn techniques to soothe calmed nerves.

Milind Dhond, M.D., medical director of interventional cardiology, teaches jujitsu and leads Kundalini meditation in his spare time. He has studied meditation for 40 years, with 20 years under Swami Radhikananda from the Siddha Yoga Ashram in India.

“There’s thousands of different ways to meditate and a range of benefits you can have from meditating,” he said. “The stress level is very high right now, both in the community and the hospital. I’m sharing these techniques that you can use in your day-to-day life to offer a sense of relaxation.”

In his six-video series, Dr. Dhond addresses basic breathing and relaxation techniques as well as deeper techniques and a 10-minute yoga stretching routine.

Dr. Dhond is one of several NorthBay Healthcare physicians who have taken time to record videos offering advice on all number of topics, from mental health to ideas for keeping children occupied while at home.

Also featured on the site are:

  • Corinna Press, Phy.d, a clinical psychologist at the Center for Primary Care who has a series of six videos focused on mental health, depression and anxiety, and offers practical tips on coping strategies.
  • Pediatrician Bruce Hewett, M.D., who offers a couple of videos aimed at giving parents good ideas on how to keep their youngsters engaged during the lockdown.
  • Orthopedic Surgeon Andrew Brooks, M.D., who has suggestions for patients awaiting surgery.
