UBC neuropsychiatry has teamed up with yoga therapist Shivani Wells to study the effects of yoga on mild traumatic brain injury. We are currently recruiting participants for an 8-week yoga intervention taking place at Stretch in Chinatown this summer. In order to participate you must have experienced a concussion at least 3 months ago, are still experiencing symptoms, are NOT currently practicing yoga, and can commit to 3 yoga classes a week for 8 weeks, as well as baseline and follow-up measures.

Contact Delrae.Fawcett@ubc.ca or ShivaniWells@me.com

Embody the Practice: We hold classes as a learning environment for teachers who want to embody the practice of restorative yoga and we invite you to come in and receive a class with us

Slow Yourself Down: Replenish the connection with yourself, revisit the lost art of listening and make a re-commitment to the practice of slowing yourself down

Refresh: Review your training, remember the techniques, remind your hands and refresh your teaching. Encourage your confidence, practice your skills, bring your questions and build community

Reading Body Shapes: Restorative yoga can have subtleties and intricacies within the variations and it can be supportive for the teacher to unpack them with others and learn together. Playing with postures and different body shapes supports the teacher in their own experience of digestion and integration
