There was energy and excitement in the air on August 29th. The weather was gorgeous and sunny as Yo San welcomed our entering fall 2014 class at the New Student Orientation.
Yo San was my only choice! I had a friend who was in school here at the time and she had nothing but great things to say about Yo San. I moved out from Chicago on a whim and never turned around!

Located a few short blocks from Jerry Brown’s State Office, folks assembled at the downtown convention center to endure a long Tuesday’s worth of testing.

So how does one go from being a Banker to a Kinesiologist to an Acupuncturist & TCM Practitioner? Life started out normal for Sonia as a kid who was active in elite-level sports. After completing her Bachelor’s in Economics & Psychology, at the age of 21 she went on to have a successful career as a Commercial Account Banker. During this time, Sonia was still competing internationally in elite rhythmic gymnastics. Though she grew up playing many sports, she also battled severe allergies and asthma from the age of 8.
I chose Yo San because of its warm, community feel and impressive TCM curriculum. The first time I visited and attended an open house I felt very welcomed and inspired and knew that it was the school I wanted to attend.

For recent DAOM graduate George Lamoureux the concept of “Jing” is a key factor that has inspired and guided his life course.

Born and raised in a small town in Eastern Pennsylvania, Lois Green had a passion for healthcare and education from an early age. In fact, her first job while in high school was doing front office and admissions work at her local hospital. Lois then headed to the University of Pittsburgh with an eye on teaching world cultures; she left as a Phi Beta Kappa graduate who found that medical anthropology offered a unique opportunity to bring healthcare and education together.
