revolutionizing healthcare through sustainable, comprehensive primary care education in Integrative Lifestyle Medicine.
Welcome to Living Well Institute!
Home to the Lifestyle Medicine Certificate & Professional Yoga Therapy Institute® Medical Therapeutic Yoga (MTY) Certification Programs.
I founded Living Well, Inc. in 2000 & PYTI® in 2001 to teach healthcare providers to use yoga reliably and safely in healthcare by combining it with PT, OT, & Athletic Training. Since then, I have evolved the program to fully prepare therapists to be primary care providers through Lifestyle Medicine.

What people are saying…
Choose Your Pathway
We have two Certification Pathways, the Lifestyle Medicine Certificate (LM) or the Medical Therapeutic Yoga Certification (MTY). The MTY Program allows you to earn both Certifications at the same time.
Integrative Lifestyle Medicine (ILM)
You will learn the latest evidence in: mindful and integrative movement, nutrition to impact neuromuscular & musculoskeletal outcomes, sleep science, pain science, stress management, behavioral change and health coaching, environmental influences, as well as specific interventions to influence epigenetic impact & the gut microbiome. Together these elements comprehensively prepare the PT, OT, or related provider to be a primary care clinician capable of delivering biopsychosocial, person-centered care across the lifespan.
Medical Therapeutic Yoga
Medical Therapeutic Yoga is an evidence-based practice & specific methodology for delivering yoga & mindfulness as Integrative Medicine in healthcare. The vision of MTY is to improve efficacy and safety of yoga in rehabilitation and wellness populations through combining skilled therapy and medical care with evolved yoga and mindfulness techniques. MTY is a complete biopsychosocial system of care that addresses chronic pain, noncommunicable disease, and population health. This pathway also includes the ILM Certificate.
