Hero of Ability!

Way back in February, Dane (one of our patients) was featured in a very nice segment of Perry’s Prospects on CTV (February 2: “Tough Opponent for a Hockey Player”).

We were delighted to learn that the BC Centre for Ability selected Dane as one of the 2012 winners of their Heroes of Ability Awards that celebrate inspirational people in their theme of Potential, Ability, and Dreams.

1 last space available for the current Exercise-Yoga Classes

1 SPOT STILL AVAILABLE!

We doubled the number of spots and all but one has filled. The classes have started, but if you are interested, you could still join in.

Please contact  classes@neuro-ability.ca if you are interested in signing up!

Stay tuned for when we post information about the next courses here and on our blog and Facebook page as well.

The yoga-style classes are led by a physiotherapist and customized for people living with and rehabbing from neurological conditions and injuries. The courses provide personalized instruction and exercise adaptation in a fun, social, small-group setting.  For more on the courses, see Neuro-Ability Exercise Classes.

You may also be interested in taking a look at an earlier post about a Neuro-Ability clinician’s (Anne Harris) invited article in the PABC Directions journal on those living with and rehabbing from neurological conditions using Yoga and Pilates.

See the new ‘Tips & Resources’ page

Our clinic waiting room and the treatment area itself are places where our patients and their families chat and share information. One of our patients, (Harriet) suggested that our website could be another place where our clients could post things they think could be helpful to others. Or to ask questions as to where to find some neuro resource.

Dawn said: “Let’s face it, when it comes to “brain injury” there is no guide book out there to know what is available in the community or to help in normal every day things […].   From our time with your clinic I feel like some of us (your clients) have developed a “family-like” relationship, where we can bond, talk and really understand the physical and emotional issues “we” face everyday. Maybe your website could have a resource component whereby us clients could log on and add interesting things that we have discovered  e.g., by passing on where to find shoes that stay on your feetHelping each other, even in the smallest way,…”

For now, all posts (from us or from you) about topics that you would like to share amongst the neuro-patient community will be gathered up in the Tips & Resources page.

Just send us an email if you’d like to post something and we’ll make it happen. You can, of course, comment about any of those posts whenever you like!
