Dr. Pam Smith has been practicing yoga on and off since college. While working on her doctorate in education, she decided to shift her focus (to the chagrin of her husband) and went to medical school at the University of Louisville. Dr Pam (as her patients call her) has been practicing ob/gyn since 1991 in Portsmouth, Norfolk, and Chesapeake. Now that she works part time practicing office gynecology at Greenbrier Ob/Gyn in Chesapeake, she has had time to complete her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification at River Yoga in Suffolk, VA and is thrilled to be teaching prenatal workshops at Breathe Yoga Center.
