My pain clinic workshops are open to everyone. However, if you’re not sure who these classes would be ideal for you can answer these 3 questions:
- Do you have chronic pain or long standing limitation of movement?
- Have you tried a number of different treatments but only found temporary relief?
- Are you ready and willing to be an active participant in your recovery?
If you answer yes to any or all of these questions, then my workshops are meant for you. Our bodies are amazing entities that have the ability to change and heal themselves, especially we take the right steps to aid the healing process. The truth is, you can improve your overall function and ease in which you move everyday with some very simple, easy principles and movements.
I have written a couple blog posts about the myths of Injury, Pain and Strain and the Truths of Healing. Now I want to give you an opportunity to put these truths into a practice. Starting this January, I will be offering monthly workshops to help you address your injury, pain, or strain. Each workshop is 2 hours where we will address pure movement, breath work, relaxation, and meditation. The first workshop, January 14th will focus on how to address low back pain, hips, knees and feet. In February, the workshop will focus on shoulders, neck and arms.
These workshops will be pre-requisites for future registered group classes that will continue to develop the principles learned in these sessions.
My intention to teach you how to move properly so healing can begin to take place. Pain doesn’t need to be a part of our “normal” day to day life. After each workshop I will give you a video of the key movements so you can continue to practice at home. Unfortunately we can’t take one yoga class and walk away healed. It is a practice and requires ongoing dedication and effort from you to continue the process.
Class sizes for my workshops have been kept purposefully small, so you can get the most of our your experience.

- Location: McMaster Fitness at 1820 Bayview Ave just north of Eglinton. (FREE Parking)
