“I’ve been practicing everything from your Functional Movement Assessment in Medical Therapeutic Yoga 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 pandemic!”
Dr. Michelle Walendowski PT, DPT
“Medical Therapeutic Yoga has completely changed the foundation of my practice for the better.
… It has set the stage for much more successful outcomes with my patients across the board.”
Dr. Kassandra Prutsman PT, DPT
I’m here to help you start living well today.
A little about me…
I’ve been using yoga in healthcare since 1992, when I was a personal trainer studying sports medicine and athletic training. I am a doctor of physical therapy (PT, DPT), athletic trainer (ATC, LAT), board certified in Lifestyle Medicine (DipACLM), founder of Living Well Institute, creator of first therapeutic yoga certification for medical pros worldwide, longtime international teacher & speaker on using yoga & Lifestyle Medicine in healthcare, and the author of Medical Therapeutic Yoga.
Did you know…
Dr. Garner’s office offers the Triad’s only comprehensive Lumbopelvic Rehabilitative Ultrasound Imaging (RUSI) in her Revolution Mill office location. Imaging allows your pelvic physical therapy program to be individualized based on scanning of the low back and pelvic area. Dr. Garner uses RUSI to scan the lumbopelvic area, which can help:
- identify drivers for pelvic pain, low back pain, abdominal, and. hip pain
- provide biofeedback for retraining core
- tackle breathing impairments
- improve and impact vocal health and longevity
- guide pelvic floor therapy for bladder and bowel urgency, frequency, and leakage, including bowel problems like constipation
- identify issues and visualize pelvic organ prolapse
- screen for common postpartum issues that can cause chronic pain
- identify issues that can help improve and resolve sexual dysfunction
- assess for factors that influence hip pain
Working with me means…
In-Person & Telehealth Care
Pelvic floor dysfunction and orthopaedics are my clinical specialties. I love helping men, women, and trans individuals overcome tough to treat issues involving the pelvic girdle, through a holistic approach. I have been teaching therapists how to tackle these tough issues for 20 years, and in the clinic I put Functional, Integrative, & Lifestyle Medicine to use – because they make physical therapy care more effective and comprehensive.
For in-person care I am centrally located in Greensboro, NC at Revolution Mill. Learn more and make appointments at the link below.
Innovative Continuing Education & Virtual Group Classes
I’ve helped thousands of therapists, doctors, and individuals access and use holistic, Integrative & Lifestyle Medicine-driven care over the last 20+ years.
For PT, OT, AT, their assistants, & similar healthcare pros: Earn CE’s & get Certified in Integrative Lifestyle Medicine (ILM) and Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY), or take specialty courses in ILM, such as Differential Diagnosis & Integrative Management of the Hip Course.
For everyone: I also teach virtual group fitness and wellness classes in Medical Therapeutic Yoga, Pilates, and even Kombucha making!
Better Time Management & Entrepreneurship
I’ve been a “mompreneur” and successful business owner of 2 small businesses for over 2 decades.
As a working mom (of 3 boys), I’ve learned what it takes to manage my time and stay mindful while wearing multiple hats as a CEO.
Work/life balance is an enigmatic concept and for women, and can seem impossible when you are a mother.
Yet, I’ve discovered strategies that have enabled me to thrive in the healthcare and wellness industry as a female and as a mother, and I’m ready to teach you how to do the same.
