Medical therapeutic yoga (MTY) is a unique complementary and integrative medicine that utilises both yoga and rehabilitative science.

Working in partnership with yoga and yoga therapy, MTY is both a healthcare art and science which allows the health care professional to use and apply yoga in a biopsychosocial model of assessment for any practice setting and patient or wellness population.

It also provides the yoga instructor and yoga therapist with the knowledge-base and opportunity to establish a healthy dialogue and partnership-based relationship with healthcare providers who practice medical therapeutic yoga.

Ginger Garner has always described her therapeutic practice as ‘slow medicine’, offering an antidote to the ‘drive-thru’ for short term gain approach of ‘fast’ healthcare delivery. The concept of ‘slow medicine’ is a perfect description of what this book covers and why yoga therapists and other healthcare professionals will find its content and approach invaluable as they strive to achieve long term health improvements and wellness in patients and clients.

For yoga to be used safely as medicine and to meet the needs of today’s society, yoga postures should evolve by embracing the current evidence base. Medical Therapeutic Yoga provides this evolution by including the evidence base to facilitate the development of integrative health care practices and protocols.
