Ginnie Livingston is a Certified Yoga Therapist (CYT) and Yoga Teacher. She received her Integrative Yoga Therapy Certification in 1999 and certification in Cardiac Yoga in 2000.

Ginnie’s yoga therapy practice has grown from her desire to help clients recapture once lost movement and function in a safe, non-competitive, and nurturing atmosphere.

She has been a lead yoga teacher at Arthritis Health since July 2000 and guides a series of yoga classes. These range from private yoga therapy, chair yoga, gentle flow yoga, and active flow yoga. Her passion is assisting people to achieve their highest level of vitality and well-being while being supported in a community of care.

She served as an instructor for yoga teacher training at the Yoga Conservatory in 2002 and 2004 and was on staff for cardiac teacher training at Satchidananda Ashram in 2003. She participated as the yoga therapist for the 2002 ASU-Arthritis Health Research Study to investigate the effect of a 10-week yoga intervention on cortisol response to stress in women with rheumatoid arthritis.
