- Therapeutic Yoga Teacher
Jody is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), a certified Pain Care Yoga Teacher and a Student of Yoga Therapy (SYT) with a particular interest in helping people with chronic or persistent pain.
With an understanding of a biopsychosocial approach to pain and it’s similarities to the holistic approach that yoga practices and philosophy offer, Jody integrates contemporary pain science along with pain self-management tools and techniques.
Having lived overseas much of the last 20 years she recognizes not only the uniqueness of each and every person from a personal point of view, but also how culture and environment play a part in how we live and move in the larger world around us. She utilizes her keen sense of interest and observation of people along with her caring and compassion for each lived experience, to create safe spaces for learning, growth and healing.
Currently enrolled in a certified International Association of Yoga Therapists (C-IAYT) program at the School of Embodied Yoga Therapy in Ottawa, she expects to complete her studies in early 2020.
Jody believes in taking a client centered approach in her therapeutic yoga sessions. We are happy to have her provide these sessions at Integrated Touch Physiotherapy.
She loves to spend time with her family and wandering in the many parks, forests, and waterways the city of Ottawa has to offer.
