In The Brain’s Way of Healing he discusses […]

2015, A Transition Year for The Concussion Blog

Exactly what this transition will be is yet to be determined… As time has passed since starting this blog in 2010 I have traversed many topics, many places and many relationships using concussions as a conduit.  I must say it has been overwhelmingly positive and beneficial; I can only hope it has been the same […]

As anybody in St. John’s knows, Tuesday was a rainy, windy mess of a day, but you wouldn’t know it by the inspired group that came to the Parkinson’s exercise/Pilates class! A great class, that tried new exercises with enthusiasm! This past week, I didn’t teach either of the Pilates classes that I normally teach, […]

It Just Is

It’s an earlier and shorter post than usual this week because I’m heading to Toronto on Wednesday so that I can take another Pilates course on Friday, Swimming Mechanics and Protocols, at Body Harmonics.
