“Using biopsychosocial underpinnings, Dr. Garner bridges necessary elements for holistic care. In addition, her Lifestyle Medicine certification and training rounds out the necessary environmental contextual framework necessary for well-being as an individual and society.

Dr. Garner offers yoga as a platform for all aspects of healthcare within a system in great need of change. She illuminates these in precepts where yoga is a natural segue to enhancing delivery of health care through holistic care. Nuanced creativity such as the use of sound, music and voice foster unique access to innovate change and these precepts offer a foundation for the collective whole.


The felt experience of this text via application to oneself is the starting point for application in patient care. Overall, this is a guidebook for the healthcare professional willing to open horizons for population health and well-being. Dr. Garner beautifully gifts us with her expertise through the pages of this integrative treatise.”  (Click here to read Dr. Galatino's full review.)

Dr. Ginger Garner has masterfully explored the bio in the biopsychosocial model of healthcare while simultaneously embracing the psychosocial contributions of yoga philosophies. By weaving the richness of the yoga tradition with the modern postural-structural-biomechanical model of medicine, she delivers a practical and relevant text exploring how we may better treat the whole person during stages of physical distress and dis-ease.”
