My name is Kendra Brown and I am new to the team at Choice Health Centre Dartmouth as a registered physiotherapist! I have been fortunate enough to combine my two passions of physiotherapy and yoga at my previous clinic in Ottawa, and am very excited to bring that same combination to you!
I have been practicing yoga for 10+ years, and had the opportunity to travel to India and complete my yoga teacher training 2 years ago. It is something that’s always been very important to me and something that I’m passionate about sharing with others. Yoga for a first-timer, or even an experienced yogi working through a new injury or mobility restriction can be quite intimidating. My goal is to be able to provide one-on-one assessments to properly identify what those restrictions are, and then provide a safe environment where a small group candeepen their practice, work towards goals that have been set, and develop a strong foundation within the yoga space.
Overall benefits of yoga:
- Improved posture and mobility
- Stress relief
- Improved breathing mechanics
- Injury prevention
Not every style of yoga is for everyone, and not everyone enjoys each and every style of yoga.Individualization of the class is important so that:
- The instructor can see each and every one of the participants with ease.
- You can focus on your individualized goals that have been previously set.
- Rehabilitation exercises specific to you are incorporated into each class.
- You can learn the foundations of yoga in a safe environment.
- You can ask as many questions as you want.
- Hands on adjustments.
Ever wonder if you’re doing a pose right? Not sure if you’re understanding the verbal cues that the instructor has given? Hands on adjustments are an important part of any yoga class, but having an instructor who can provide these adjustments with a full understanding of your individualized restrictions and injuries are just as important for your safety.
Having someone with the knowledge and experience specific to your injuries and restrictions can make all the difference in learning how to do yoga, or deepening your practice!
