Keep your brain learning and body moving while staying safe at home
Welcome to Our Online Classes!
Due to the current health crisis, we are launching a series of FREE online education and exercise classes to help keep your brain learning and your body moving while staying safe at home. These classes are open to everyone – clients, caregivers, healthcare providers, and the general public, anywhere in the world. All classes are offered live, in real time, so you can engage with your clinical instructor and classmates.
Mental Health after Head Injury
Head injuries can cause people to experience many different symptoms, including sadness and anxiety. Knowing the best-researched ways to re-wire our brains towards feeling happier and less anxious or sad is an incredibly valuable tool. This education session will give you resources to use on your own that can help create more positive emotions.
Better Sleep for a Better Brain
Sleep is important for us to feel good in our bodies and minds and yet so many people have trouble with falling asleep, staying asleep or feeling well rested in the morning. This education session will provide tips on how to optimize your sleep to leave you feeling more refreshed, energized and able to heal.
Concussion Symptom Management
Concussions can be difficult to know how to manage, especially with conflicting advice online. This session is to help clients make sense of how they can best manage symptoms on their own. It is a general advice session that will cover how to manage symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, visual or auditory sensitivity and dizziness through pacing and gradual return to activity.
We’ve all heard the saying “laughter is the best medicine” and it is! Laughing produces feel-good hormones in our body. The more we smile and laugh, the more our brain becomes wired towards happiness. Laughter yoga uses sustained laughter and deep yogic breathing as a way to calm the nervous system, relieve stress and boost our mood.
Persistent Pain after Head Injury (Part 1)
When one suffers a brain injury it sometimes results in persistent pain that is difficult to manage. This part one of a two part education series is on pain education. In many of the top leading pain clinics in the world, pain education is the first step to addressing chronic pain issues. Pain education will give clients an understanding of what is happening in their bodies and how it connects to their emotions and motivations.
Persistent Pain after Head Injury (Part 2)
Persistent pain from a head injury often comes with a feeling of a loss of control. When clients have tried many treatments or medications that have not provided relief, it can be exhausting and feel hopeless. There are well researched tools that clients can use to take back control and manage their symptoms. The point of this session is to empower the client and give them resources to provide themselves with some relief.
