Instructor Bio:

Naomi CasiroNaomi Casiro, BSc. (Kin), MPT, Certified PWR! Therapist

​Born and raised in Winnipeg, MB Naomi moved to BC to complete both her undergraduate and Masters degrees and swim competitively for the University of Victoria. For many years she worked in her capacity as a Kinesiologist teaching lifestyle bootcamps and doing personal training. This practice allowed her to grow her passion for motivating people to get the most out of life through activity and healthy living. After completing her Masters Degree in Physiotherapy, Naomi quickly became focused on Neuro-Rehab. Over time treating people living with Parkinson’s disease has grown as both a focus of her passion, clinical work and post graduate education. Naomi now owns and runs NeuroFit BC, a Parkinson's only mobile physiotherapy business, and works part time at Neuro-Ability Rehabilitation Services. She spends her time teaching classes, treating clients and offering courses to health professionals about the incredible impact of exercise and Neuroplasticity on those living with Parkinson's Disease. Naomi volunteers regularly with the Parkinson's society running exercise classes and giving lectures to help educate community members and spread the word about the importance of exercise for treating this population.  Naomi's passion is helping people with Parkinson's live their lives to the fullest and she will be leading BC's first ever Parkinson's exercise and wellness retreat in 2017.
