Dr. Yu became interested in meditation through the positive personal experience of mindful practices and the reliability of the stress management techniques used during meditation when applied in real life. The depth and transformative power of this practice became an essential part of his daily life, and it inspired him to share his experience with physician colleagues, medical students, house staff and family members. Dr. Yu is a Qualified Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Teacher and has completed the MBSR Teacher Training Intensive through the University of California (San Diego) Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute.
