Nice to e-meet you and looking forward to sharing some knowledge with you all to prevent injuries. I’m a hands-on physiotherapist at MyLife Rehab and Wellness in Whitby with a unique approach to treating our community. I meet so many folks whose injuries could have been prevented or lessened if they had the right education and guidance early on. My mission is to educate and elevate everyone I meet to understand that our bodies want to be whole, they want to be healthy. Looking forward to see you all!

Sleep & Dreaming

Why we do it and why it’s healthy for us

Over the course of a lifetime, you will spend 72 years asleep and 5 years dreaming.  Why do we spend so much time in an unconscious state?  Sure, sleep is good for you, but exactly happens when we are sleeping?  And do dreams mean anything?  In this presentation, Dr. Atkinson will discuss the research on sleep and dreaming, and provide some tips to get a better sleep.

The Pelvic Floor

The Pelvic Floor
What is it? Where is it?
How does it work and why should we care about it?
How can we take care of it?
Join Sacha Thoman, Certified Core Confidence Specialist and a Pre/Post Natal Fitness Specialist in this 30 minute Movement Break on The Pelvic Floor.
She will discuss the signs to look out for that it might need some attention, and what we can do to support our pelvic floor health when we exercise and as we age . Sacha shares what exercises are the best and the worst if we think or know we have issues. And why kegels are not always the answer.   Sacha will share a couple very simple exercises to help us connect with our pelvic floor and feel into how it works.
