A little bit about our current physiotherapist:
Jennifer, originally from KW, has moved back to the area and has joined the Midtown Yoga team, bringing 20 years of experience and passion for rehab and yoga.
After graduating from the physiotherapy program at University of Western Ontario in 2000, Jenn began working in the neuro rehab outpatient program at the teaching hospital, University Health Network -Toronto Rehab. She was very involved in best practice initiatives, fitness and education groups, research and teaching students, including being a lab instructor at the U of T physiotherapy program. Jennifer has a real interest in helping her patients reduce pain and return to their life roles by giving them simple, practical exercises and self-management strategies, providing education, promoting self-awareness and helping them practice self-care to heal and prevent in the long-term.
Jennifer also has a passion for yoga. After many years of doing yoga herself, in 2008, Jennifer went to India to obtain certification in teaching yoga. She went on to take further yoga courses here in Canada and the Bahamas. Since then, she has been excited to blend her knowledge of physiotherapy and yoga to help others reap the many benefits of the practice and use yoga as a therapeutic and preventative tool, by adapting it to meet one’s needs.
