Meet Dr. Ginger Garner
Dr. G has been using yoga in her practice of physical therapy and athletic training since the 1990’s. A trailblazer for transformative practice in rehabilitation and injury prevention and wellness, she has been leading biopscyhosocial-driven, interdisciplinary yoga training for healthcare since 2000.
She is a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill trained doctor of physical therapy (DPT), as well as a licensed athletic trainer (LAT, ATC) and professional yoga therapist (PYT). Dr. G has spent 25 years studying and creating “best fit” yoga practices in and outside of healthcare. She is the founder of Professional Yoga Therapy InstituteTM and author of Medical Therapeutic Yoga © 2016.
Yoga is a powerful mechanism for healing and helping you reach your highest potential physically, psychoemotionally, energetically, and spiritually. Combining it with medical science makes yoga even more powerful, which what Dr. G has done in her book, Medical Therapeutic Yoga©. The landmark text is more than just a book, it is audio-visual eye candy, offering a home practice of dozens of videos that teach you safe, scientifically supported methods for your best health. It is an accessible systems-based practice that Dr. G has used in physical therapy and integrative wellness practice for nearly 20 years.
