What Patients Are Saying...
Here's just a small sampling of feedback from patients who've benefited from PYT:
It has been the best thing I’ve ever done for my body and my mind and my soul and my music and my family and my well being and…well you get the idea. I never imagined, four years ago when I was having such trouble with my back, that I’d be doing back bends and arm stands like I could do when I was a teenager. I never thought I’d be running 4 to 5 miles at a time again either. I don’t feel like I’ll be 50 in just a few short months. I feel the best I’ve felt in a long time. I wonder how I’ll feel at sixty? Bring it on!" - Angie Cooper, Swansboro, NC
I have better flexibility, balance, and blood pressure than I have had in years..." - George Collins, Attorney
After only a few sessions with Ginger in her group restorative classes my back feels the best it has in years." - Vickie Burgess, RN (20 year veteran in Oncology nursing)

About the Book
Dr. Ginger Garner presents us with a modern, non-dogmatic, evidence-based guide to yoga breathwork and posture prescription based on the most current biomechanical absolutes and common mechanisms of injury. Medical Therapeutic Yoga covers injury and illness prevention and wellness; clinical evaluation and diagnosis; treatment and rehabilitation; and organizational and professional health and well-being. In this book, yoga is used as a treatment approach by rehabilitation practitioners, which include, but are not limited to, specialists in physical therapy, occupational therapy, athletic training, sports medicine, pain management, and physical and rehabilitative medicine. The breathwork presented is of particular importance to all-health outcomes, making it a relevant therapy across the lifespan for system-based patient care of all populations. Evolution of the postures, via the evidence-based biomechanical method presented in the book, provides an orthopaedic philosophical methodology that is steeped in a biopsychosocial model which makes it applicable to both physical and mental health populations. In this book Dr. Ginger Garner introduces a large body of work, known as Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY), to other healthcare professionals so that they can apply yoga breathwork and postures as therapy in acute and chronic disease processes.
For yoga to be used safely and effectively as medicine and to meet the needs of today’s society, yoga postures must evolve by embracing the current evidence base. Medical Therapeutic Yoga provides this evolution.
