Dr. Tianna Meriage-Reiter, PT, DPT, WHC, PYT began her practicing yoga in 2004. It wasn’t until she began studying with Professional Yoga Therapy Studies (PYTS), that she began to see that her practice might have been causing her harm – the physical positions were not safe for her body and the fast-pace was wreaking havoc on her nervous system. PYTS helped her to begin her own personal journey towards more mindful living and allowed her to pass this on to her patients. She is currently at the tail end of a 200 Hour YTT in the Ashtanga theory at Mount Madonna Institute. She now uses the science of physical therapy bridged to the mind-body connection of therapeutic yoga to provide her patients / clients with the tools to heal themselves. The holds a bachelor’s degree in Physiology & Neuroscience from UCSD and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from UCSF/SFSU. Presently, she has her own practice, seeing clients with persistent pain and for women's health issues. She also teaches weekly therapeutic yoga classes.
