The physical therapy provided by Liz Montagna was by far the BEST therapy I have ever received! Each 55 minute therapy session was completely individualized to my specific issues, and home exercises were continually tailored to my ongoing progress. Integrating a vast knowledge of physical therapy with her passion for therapeutic yoga, Liz was able to alleviate my pain and teach me ways to strengthen and heal. Liz also provided me with videos of specific exercises introduced during our sessions, enabling me to practice each exercise at home correctly. Very helpful!

I have worked with yoga physical therapy for over 15 months now and consider it a life-changing experience. I have struggled with fibromyalgia and arthritis overall body pain for over 20 years. In my 60s and now 70s I have experienced major back, knee and shoulder- neck pain issues. At times I have been relegated to using walkers, crutches and being bedridden. I have also frequently needed prescription pain medications and steroids to carry out my normal daily activities.
After over a year of hard work with Liz Montagna, RPT,RYT I have seen major across-the-board improvements in my health and quality of life. My fibromyalgia and arthritic pain and stiffness have been dramatically reduced. My back pain problems are gone and the knee surgery I thought was certain is no longer necessary. my current shoulder - neck problems are steadily improving.
Liz Montagna brings a wonderful blend of knowledge, skills and experience to her work. There is purpose and method in everything she does. She constantly amazes with her ability to diagnose a problem and then apply the proper approach to dealing with it. In my case there have been many problems and numerous effective fixes.
Liz is one of those rare people who has a genuine passion for what she does.Her commitment and skills have resulted in effective positive results for me. I look forward to working with her for a long time to come.
I had a history of back and neck problems and went to Liz in hopes of fixing structural issues and increasing flexibility. Liz not only helped me accomplish the former, but she also gave me the tools to continue my Yoga practice beyond the therapy sessions, and into everyday Yoga classes. She is kind, easy going, and a very good communicator. I recommend Liz' Yoga Therapy sessions for anyone with pain that is related to structural issues, muscle tightness, or injury.
I had undergone hundreds of hours of physical therapy with multiple providers in trying to recover from back surgeries, but did not experience any real healing progress until I became a patient of Liz at Yoga Physical Therapy. Liz is credentialed as both a Registered Physical Therapist (RPT) and as a yoga instructor, and she combines the two disciplines to create a truly personalized and unique program for each of her clients. Her skills and her very kind and caring nature have made a big difference in my life and I'm very thankful for the exceptional care that I've received at Yoga Physical Therapy.
I had been struggling recovering from three shoulder surgeries and was personally fed up with the physical therapy that I had been receiving. I was still in pain and the scar tissue was simply not going away. I read a report on Iyengar yoga helping persons with injuries. I sought out the internet and was so blessed when I found Liz. She is amazing, caring and concerned about your overall healing. She was a saint who worked my shoulder and neck to the point where I have been pain free for the last six years. I was saddened when she moved away from Huntington Beach, but as a direct result of her care and concern I have continued my Iyengar Yoga practice and it has continued to help me both physically and spiritually.
