Dedicated to Empowering American Women since 1992, through the healing arts. General overview of Ginger’s Practice
We need change in health care for women in America, and we need it now. Health care in America needs a Woman and Mother-Centered approach. American mothers and women are in great need of holistic, patient centered care, rather than disease care focused around drugs and diagnostic testing.
Our current approach in health care is not working – it has awarded the US with the highest infant and maternal mortality rate of all industrialized nations, and has left more women in poverty and suffering from chronic diseases than men.(1) Read more about women’s health crisis in America or Alternate link here.

What Ginger’s students and patients are saying:
- Patient, Hubert, NC – “After my back injury, I gained a lot of weight and my back pain returned. I want to thank you for all your help! Because of you I have lost 22 pounds in a few short months – and all because I implemented the things you recommended during a single appointment I had with you. I printed all of the information you sent me from your website and book, “Best Care Practices for Low Back Pain,” and made a binder. I cut the fruits and carbs, really watched the gluten, have been using more organic. Yea!!! It has been a little harder traveling and being in other’s homes but I have been pretty creative. So thank you for all of the help that you have provided.”
- Certified Nurse Midwife, RN, Greensboro, NC – “Prenatal Yoga Therapy is a wonderful course – it has been well researched and well written (by Ginger).. The depth of her knowledge in prenatal yoga is fantastic.”
- A. D., RYT, Greensboro, NC – “Prenatal Yoga Therapy was very informative. I feel I could really relate to Ginger as an experienced yoga therapist and as a mother. Her knowledge of prenatal yoga was wonderful.”
- RYT, PTA Greensboro, NC – “Prenatal Yoga was excellently instructed by Ginger. She is very well educated and versed in Prenatal Yoga and shows a wealth of knowledge on the subject.”
- LMBT, Polarity Practitioner, & client, Swansboro, North Carolina –“I am amazed and delighted that we accomplished so much in just one session, somatically speaking. I can feel a very distinct difference in my shoulder when it is over my head – and the change while moving I would liken to feeling like it “bounces” in my shoulder girdle while I walk.
- CSW, Rochester, New York – My mother has been in chronic pain for a rough few years. Thank you for energizing her. She is excited your ‘magic’ will continue to help her feel better and better everyday. I wish I had an instructor who works like you do up here.
- Student and mother of three, Washington D.C. – Ginger, I can’t even begin to tell you how much I miss yoga with you. From the the first class, I knew I found something and someone special. Since starting yoga twelve years ago, you are the most knowledgeable, talented, caring, driven, and extraordinary yoga instructor I ever had. Your practices not only challenged me physically, but made me stronger mentally and emotionally. Your unique approach of yoga therapy not only healed my shoulder pain, but more importantly helped me with the delivery of my first child. You have created a standard that I will use for my future yoga instructors. I have not found one yet….
- PT, Casper, Wyoming – “I received my Ancient Yoga, New You DVD and just finished it….it is wonderful. What a great job on the content. You (author, Ginger) are an inspiration. Thank you for a truly educational DVD.
