Dr. Ben Zorensky, ND, is a licensed, board-certified Naturopathic Physician and NOLS certified Wilderness First Responder. He also has been a Certified Bikram Yoga Instructor since 2003. Raised in a holistic household, his focus on nutrition, exercise and a healthy lifestyle began at an early age. Visits to National Parks in Colorado, Utah, Alaska, Arizona, and Maine were regular family occurrences. Early engagement with natural surroundings fostered an accessible sense of good health and peace of mind. It was an easy transition for Dr. Ben to understand nature as a therapeutic, healing tool.
In high school, as an All-State player on a championship basketball team, Ben drew on nutrition and plyometric training techniques to improve his performance. His dedication to athletics and academics led him to Johns Hopkins University, where he played Varsity basketball until a shoulder injury took him out of the game. It was the confluence of a study-abroad program in Australia introducing him to aboriginal culture, his experience rehabilitating his shoulder injury, his love for the outdoors, and his holistic upbringing that channeled him into Naturopathic Medicine.
In 2000, Ben moved to Arizona to attend the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM). Two years later, he and his wife, Elaina, opened Bikram Yoga Tempe where for more than fourteen years they served over 40,000 clients, including hundreds of professional athletes. In 2007, Dr. Zorensky, ND graduated from SCNM and currently practices Naturopathic Medicine as Chief Medical Officer for Naturopathic Athlete at WellSpring Holistic Health in Tempe, AZ.
