Medical Therapeutic Yoga Classes & Private Yoga Assessments
Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY) is a form of integrated, functional medicine delivered by experienced, licensed medical professionals. Ginger Garner DPT, ATC, PYT, developed medical therapeutic yoga as a system for health care professionals after years of successful patient care with acute and chronic pain patients who fared better when she used yoga as a primary means for delivering rehabilitation.
- Our physical therapists are trained and certified in the Professional Yoga Therapy Method under Ginger Garner DPT, ATC, PYT, founder and educator in medical therapeutic yoga, orthopedics, and women’s health.
- We prescribe yoga according to your specific medical condition.
- We offer a new model for fitness and rehabilitation that helps you maintain health in a simpler, more holistic way.
Roper Physical Therapy offers weekly Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY) classes. Classes are taught in our semi-private studio allowing a maximum of 8 people per class. This environment provides the freedom to offer plenty of individualized instruction including hands-on adjustments, myofascial release and an abundance of education in each class. We incorporate the emotional, social, intellectual, physical and spiritual aspects of wellness in our classes and encourage it in everyday living. All classes offered at Roper Physical Therapy are medical -based instructional yoga for all levels taught by a licensed physical therapist.

An Introduction to to Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY) by Ginger Garner
“I was referred to the medical therapeutic yoga program at Roper PT by another physical therapist I was working with who felt yoga could help to increase my flexibility. Two years later I am a flexible, strong, self aware, appreciative yogi with a growing understanding of my world and my place in it. Medical Therapeutic Yoga at Roper PT has been a game changer for me! It isn’t a room packed full of yoga mats, quickly flowing through poses. This is intentional instruction by extraordinary Physical Therapists with emphasis on proper body mechanics.
It’s available to all of us regardless of age, experienced/no experience, athletic or injured. This team is unique and gifted and educates on the principle of incorporating the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of yoga. Their approach to yoga will empower you to be the best version of yourself. You can not share your time with this group of ladies and not be a changed person whether in your practice, your thoughts, your breathing, your mindfulness. What they’re doing is really special.”
“I love my yoga class with Cay. Her pace is perfect. She allows time to get into each pose and hold it long enough to create a great stretch while at the same time increasing muscle strength. Cay listens to each person in the room and encourages everyone to grow in his/her yoga practice. The hour with Cay is time well spent and goes by quickly. I look forward to my yoga class with Cay.”
