with Medical Therapeutic Yoga™
My Yoga Journey
I took my first yoga class in Annapolis. MD when I was 18 years old. I remember being amongst a group of mature individuals being led by a beautiful teacher who taught us breathing techniques combined with artistic and flowing movements. This completely fascinated me. I was formally a gymnast and loved anything that involved flexibility. I was also a spiritual person, being raised in the church as a Pastor’s Kid and learning the concepts of prayer and meditation at a very young age.
I continued my study and practice of yoga throughout the years when I got married, had kids and completed physical therapy school. I began studying at The Professional Yoga Therapy Institute in 2011 with Dr. Ginger Garner. This diversified my business model and created a paradigm shift by adding integrative and functional medicine offerings into my practice. Since becoming a Professional Yoga Therapist, I have been able to apply powerful principles to my life and my clients’ lives to optimize their health and prevent degeneration and disease.

What is Medical Therapeutic Yoga?
Medical Therapeutic Yoga™ is the practice of yoga in medicine, rehabilitation, and wellness settings instructed by a licensed health care professional who has graduated from the Professional Yoga Therapy Institute and credentialed as a Professional Yoga Therapist.
Medical Therapeutic Yoga™ uses the Biopsychosocial (BPS) model of care, something both the World Health Organization and the Institute of Medicine endorse. The BPS model provides personalized medicine, where the patient is the main focus and attends not only to their physical needs but also their mental/intellectual, psycho-emotional, social, energetic and spiritual needs.
Medical Therapeutic Yoga™ was developed over 20 years ago by Dr. Ginger Garner, MPT, ATC, PYT, DPT, the founder of a grassroots movement to improve healthcare in America. She is an educator in Medical Therapeutic Yoga™, orthopedics, trauma victims and women’s health. MTY can radically transform healthcare for the 21st century. That is the sole mission of Dr. Ginger Garner and her students all over the world.
