Carlo Reyes, DPT
HI! I’m Carlo and I’m a Physical Therapist and owner of Physical Therapy Concepts. We help people in the South Bay stay active, move better, and get back to things they love to do without using medications, unnecessary doctors visits, or surgery. We founded PT Concepts with the belief that people like YOU want to spend more time with your provider, have been frustrated with today’s healthcare system, and are seeking solutions when all other treatments have failed.
Im originally from San Diego and found my calling while volunteering in a PT clinic while studying Kinesiology at Cal Poly in Pomona. There I met a wonderful lady who had hurt her foot over a year ago and could not walk (she was in a wheelchair). After treatment she walked out of PT hugging (crying) and thanking all of us- that’s when I was hooked. Ever since then it’s been my passion to help people get their life back in a private, one-on-one setting where YOU will be our focus the entire time.
When I’m out of the office I enjoy spending time with my amazing wife and family. I love to surf, hike, skateboard, bike and just try to keep up with my three crazy boys!
I graduated with a Master of Physical Therapy from California State University, Long Beach and was awarded my Doctor of Physical Therapy through Temple University. I have been working with the outpatient Orthopedic Adult (and children) population in the South Bay for over 10 years.
Brittnay, Lead Yoga Instructor
HI! I’m Brittnay and I’m the lead yoga instructor and patient care coordinator here at Physical Therapy Concepts. I was drawn to PT Concepts because of the one-on-one attention each patient receives and the strong relationships we create. Starting from the first point of contact we listen to your story and work together to get you back to doing what you love.
I first began practicing yoga 10 years ago and it has helped me become more aware of my physical and mental well being. Yoga teaches us to be patient with ourselves and heighten our internal strength so we can improve our quality of life. Through movement, breath, and meditation we can experience a clearer view of ourselves.
I’ve completed multiple trainings through CorePower Yoga varying from a vinyasa-based practice to restorative. I have also completed a 300hr professional training with the guidance of Charlie Samos and Gigi Snyder at YogaWorks. I’m currently pursuing my degree in kinesiology.
When I’m out of the clinic I love reading, yoga-ing and exploring the outdoors with my partner and 2 dogs. We’re avid campers and love a good road trip!
Laurie, Yoga Instructor
Hi! My name is Laurie. I’ve been a yoga instructor for about 14 years. I presently teach a level 1 class Friday evenings at Physical Therapy Concepts.
I was drawn to PT Concepts because I was a client of Carlo’s for my own water sports injuries. I love his holistic approach to wellness.
I have a passion for wellness. I believe all parts of us are connected. Yoga is a great tool to find that unity and to strengthen muscles, become more flexible and find more balance in life.
I love helping people achieve their goals. At PT Concepts we offer an approach that is accepting of where our clients are in life at present, guiding them to achieve their goals.
When I am out of the clinic I love to surf, outrigger paddle, garden and spend time with my family including two new grandchildren.
Victoria, Yoga Instructor
Hello, I’m Victoria! I’m an Aquarius, a homebody, and was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I feel like my life truly began at 26 years old, when I started to become aware of my strength by training Capoeira, a Brazilian martial art. When I was 34, I found my passion when I began practicing yoga. At 35, I became a mom for the first time and I found my purpose and my fire. I became a yoga teacher at 37, and it was then that I found my voice and my calling. Being able to mesh all of these things together has made for an exciting and wonderful ride ever since.
I love all of the physical aspects of yoga…the strengthening, healing, mindful movement. But on a deeper level, my yoga practice helps me trust myself and my divine wisdom, helps me let go of perfection, and gives me tools navigate the ups and downs of life with more ease and gratitude. Being a yoga teacher has made my life even more rich by break down my walls, allowing me to really connect with and empower my fellow yogis!
In 2014, I completed my 200-hour Power Yoga teacher training, and have since become certified in Yoga Sculpt, Hot Power Fusion, and Prenatal Yoga. I also enjoy photography, cooking, and this busy mom is so thankful for audiobooks and podcasts!
Lisa, Power Yoga Instructor
Hi everyone! My name is Lisa and I teach Power Yoga (Level 1-2) on Thursday evenings and most Sunday mornings at PT Concepts.
I met Carlo from PT Concepts in a networking group and was drawn to his positive energy and desire to help others. I appreciate and respect that he see his clients not as people to ‘fix’ but as people to build relationships with and help from a holistic perspective.
My journey into yoga came because the physical and spiritual aspects of the practice helped me heal from a life tragedy and trauma. My hope in spreading the practice and love of yoga is to pay it forward to anyone else to whom life has impacted or is impacting.
When I’m not teaching yoga, I am working as an Educational Therapist with students of all ages while building my online health and wellness business and being an active, involved mother to my two children.
