Course Overview & Preview

Hello and welcome! 

This 3 week series, taught by veteran orthopaedic and pelvic physical therapist and FILM (Functional, Integrative, & Lifestyle Medicine) practitioner, Dr. Ginger Garner, will help you practice yoga practice that is sustainable for your joints and fitness for the long haul. 


What Works Quickest to Tackle Pain & Stress


At EudeMOMia® I work with people who have struggled for a LONG time with pelvic, abdominal, low back, sacroiliac joint, and/or hip pain. 

A LOT of folks I work with have questions about what kind of non-pharmaceutical treatments can impact pain and stress the fastest.  

The answer to that is easy: focusing on breath work. 

This 3 week series will teach you to master the breath, starting with the scientifically supported basics all the way up to advanced breath techniques that public speakers, teachers, and singers need to use to protect their vocal cords. 

I have found this approach to work the best: 

  • Each week will be broken down into 3 mini practices of 20 minutes each.
  • That means you get 9 Breathing Practices in all - which will last you far longer than just 3 weeks! 
  • This structure provides you a lifetime of quick and easy breath practices that can impact asthma, congestion, long COVID, COPD, muscle tension issues that impact the vocal cords, pelvic pain, chronic constipation, painful intercourse, tight pelvic floor, poor digestion, and those looking to improve overall mental health.


What You’ll Learn



  • Learn how to build a stronger core through Medical Therapeutic Yoga breath and posture work 
  • Work smarter, not harder, when you are breathing - with 9 daily restorative practices 
  • How breath work can decrease pain and improve pelvic health, digestion, vocal preservation and power, stress management, & lung power.

Session Overview



Session 1 – Will include 3 - 20 minute mini-practices. You will learn fundamental techniques required to progress to advanced breath work, and also restorative yoga postures that help target pain and stiffness in the pelvic and hip region.

Session 2 –Will include 3 - 20 minute mini-practices. You will learn how to use postures and breath in a practical way to help improve lung power, stress management, stiffness and tightness from the neck and vocal cords to the pelvic floor, and impact pain. This is the gateway between having mastered the basics and learning advanced strategies.

Session 3 – Will include 3 - 20 minute mini-practices. Put it all together! We will progress to advanced breathing and vocalization techniques in this session. 

Time: 9 Mini-Practices that are 20 minutes each, broken down into 3 Sessions. 


When


Mini-Sessions will be released in 1 hour increments (3 practices at a time) March 18, 25, and April 1, 2022. Classes will be available on-demand after these dates. You also get lifetime access for the life of the course!

YOUR BONUSES 


You will also get LIFETIME ACCESS with the purchase of this course which: 

  • Saves you time and money. No yoga studio or gym membership fees and no lost time commuting! 
  • Minimizes risk of exposure to COVID.
  • Maximizes your privacy in practice. Dr. Garner takes you through practices you may not feel comfortable doing in front of a studio "audience" or large class of people. 
  • Gets to the heart of what yoga was meant to be - a solitary practice that transforms you from the inside out, rather than the outside in. Yoga was never meant to be a "studio class" pursuit, with fancy equipment, expensive clothing, and/or pressure to perform. 
  • Allows you the privacy and convenience to practice in your home. No expensive yoga clothes or toys required. Dr. Garner shows you how to do yoga, manage stress, AND get fit through integrative PT & therapeutic Pilates, like a minimalist champion. 
  • We don't waste time in our classes. As a self-employed mother of 3, Ginger knows what it takes to get and stay fit, healthy, and well in an efficient, time-saving way. 
  • Learn how to spot red flags for injury and practice yoga and fitness in a safer and more effective way.

What People Are Saying

Everyone should work with Ginger as a professional and as a patient

Katie Estridge, PT, MPT

I would recommend that everyone work with Ginger Garner. She is without a doubt the best physical therapist I have ever worked with. She understands the human body like no one I have ever met.

People who struggle with finding relief from traditional PT will find a solution in Ginger's approach

Dr. Sylvie Le, PT, DPT

The benefits of Medical Therapeutic Yoga have stretched beyond both the clinical setting and mat for my patients. Patients who may have struggled finding relief with traditional PT, battle the psychological and emotional stress of anxiety, depression, and impatience in dealing with injury and functional limitations, or find it challenging to remain motivated to move and take care of their bodies, have found a safe and healthy avenue through Ginger's method.

Feel better than I've felt in years, AND that's during the pandemic!

Dr. Michelle Walendowski PT, DPT

I’ve been practicing everything from your weekend Level I Certification on a (mostly) daily basis, and I have to say I feel healthier and just generally better than I have in years. And that’s during a worldwide pandemic!

Grounded, hopeful, pain free, rested, & resilient after Dr. Garner's classes

Dr. Dina Macs, PT, DPT

You are a trusted gem in a sea of on-line unknowns, Dr. Garner, and a gift to us all. Thank you for keeping us safe, evidence-grounded, & soulfully uplifted. I have not personally experienced a more nimble biopsychosocial rehabilitation guide.

I'm a better therapist AND mom thanks to Ginger.

Dr. Becca Ellis PT, DPT

Ginger's knowledge and experience have completely shaped my professional career, and her guidance has truly helped me be a better mom to my sweet boys.

Empowering for me and my patients

Dr. Sarah Talley, PT, DPT, WCS

Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY) has transformed my clinical practice and my own self care. MTY provides a framework for treating patients holistically while empowering them to care for themselves.

A sustainable model for healthcare delivery

Kanchan Thakar, PT

Honestly speaking, words cannot do justice to the experience of learning from Ginger. My hope is that all DPT students will avail of her teachings sooner than later and begin to practice PT with enthusiasm and compassion. Thanks to Ginger for creating a sustainable model of healthcare delivery.

Ginger's program has restored my love of being a PT

Dr. Katie Goroncy, PT, DPT

Ginger's program has restored my love and perspective that physical therapy is a healing ART. I had been feeling uninspired, deflated by the obstacles in the healthcare/insurance system, and was losing sight of what drew me to the healthcare field in the first place. Her program gave me a solid evidence based framework from which to integrate "whole person", yogic, lifestyle medicine into my physical therapy foundation. It has since sparked joy, creativity, and a broader perspective into my clinical practice.

I highly recommend Ginger

Dr. Maureen Mason-Cover, PT, DPT

Ginger is a wise and compassionate health care provider who blends medical yoga with rehabilitation programming, and she has an extensive background of patient care service. Her style is forward thinking towards patient education, empowerment, and optimization of function, and she works with other health care team members to provide a healing community of care. I highly recommend her.
