Event description

Description

Watson Centre Society for Brain Health is dedicated to improving the outcomes and quality of life of individuals who have experienced a brain injury (or concussion). Active rehabilitation is the best way to target your brain's ability to heal, and it is never too late to start.

As a way of sharing our knowledge of evidence-based practices to the survivors that need it most, community members are now able to attend free programs and events on days our registered program is closed.

Check out our other regular events on Eventbrite.

Learn about the WCSBH program and how it is changing lives and the narrative around brain injury recovery here.




Have you thought about returning to activity but haven’t found the right type of class to suit your brain injury recovery needs? If so, then this is the right class for you!

Did you know mindful movement can give your brain a boost? Not only do certain exercises help you relax and de-stress, they may also promote neuroplasticity by engaging both sides of your brain!

This class will inspire you to reconnect your movement with your breath and your breath to your body.

In this class we use movements and sequencing to help support learning. Here you can challenge your muscles, balance and cognition while building the skills and confidence to return to movement in a fun, safe and inclusive group!



What you need to bring:

  • A water bottle
  • A yoga or fitness mat if you have one

  • Most importantly, a positive attitude and an open mind

This class is suitable for independent brain injury survivors looking to return to activity.




Please contact us if you have any questions
