Learn the Benefits of Prescribing Yoga as Medicine
Ginger Garner MPT, ATC highlights the benefit of facilitating multidisciplinary interaction within the present medical model. By applying the current evidence base to yoga in its traditional form, Ginger teaches you how to prescribe yoga as medicine.
In her two-part Medbridge course, Medical Therapeutic Yoga, Ginger notes the ways in which integrative yoga is beneficial for assessment and management of orthopaedic pathophysiologies as well injury prevention.
She also includes the systemic benefits of using integrative yoga in clinical and community based practice through employing the biopsychosocial model of assessment used in integrative medicine.
Watch as Ginger explains the shift in the current medical model to include a more holistic biopsychosocial approach.
Ginger has written more than 30 programs and a 4 volume text standardizing the use of yoga in integrative medicine and rehabilitation through her program Professional Yoga Therapy. Ginger advocates for her patients to receive holistic and integrative medical care in order to improve health care in the US today.

What Graduates & Colleagues are saying...
I just wanted to say how much I appreciate Veronica Whetsel's (PYT graduate and physical therapist) teaching and presence and your role in helping me in many ways through your development of Medical Therapeutic Yoga.
~ Caren M. Carney, Ph.D.
"Western medicine is gradually realizing its need to go beyond the biochemical dimensions of the human being…hence, the emergence of integrative medicine. But there is a problem.
Health care practitioners in our current work force have limited training in holistic methods. PYT is filling this void by utilizing the practitioner's training in modern health science and integrating it with a new medical model for using therapeutic medical yoga and Ayurveda." ~ David Crenshaw PT, PYT, CPI; Illinois
