I have had the incredible opportunity to work with clients who have had TBI’s (traumatic brain injuries) and concussions in my acupuncture and yoga practice.
Although there may be similar symptoms with brain injuries, such as nausea, light sensitivity, loss of balance and coordination, headaches, and mood changes (including irritability and depression), every person is different. Acupuncture identifies the uniqueness in the client’s system and addresses their symptom pattern accordingly.
As a Certified Love Your Brain Yoga and Meditation instructor, I am able to teach yoga and meditation that specifically helps my students recognize their resiliency and form a community to foster their healing journey.
For more information about how Yoga can help those who have suffered a traumatic brain injury, see a list of our classes at Soulshine Yoga.
Love Your Brain is an organization that strives to make yoga free for those whose lives have been impacted by traumatic brain injuries. Every year in March, Love Your Brain runs #MindfulMarch, a month of classes and events that help raise money to make Yoga programs available to everyone who needs them in North America.
