Hello, I'm OT Shelley. I'm a cyclist, a yogi and a nature lover who loves to hike, swim in the ocean and be outdoors. With more than 20 years experience as an Occupational Therapist in neurology, I can tell you that occupation matters. We want to be able to do the things we love. And when we can't, because of impairment, things can absolutely go haywire in our mind, body and spirit.
What brought me here? As a concussion survivor myself, I've been on the search, I've done the exercises , I've felt the hard feels. But I saw something missing in traditional concussion care. Education.Empowerment. A Mind Body approach. The things that build resilience. And so slowly, The power of THREE began to emerge; A program combining the learning with the doing . Welcome.
My big Why, a letter.
In 2016 I clocked my head on a log while running the beach at sunset. Then in 2017 I crashed while skiing and landed on my head. Now even though I am an OT who had worked with brain injury clients, I had no idea how awful it felt to be on this side of things. I couldn't think of words, I didn't feel like socializing, and my brain was in a complete fog. Every time I went to do my favourite exercise and activities I would get symptoms like dizziness, headaches and unclear thinking. I didn't know anyone with concussion. I spent days on searches for the right help but nothing worked. And then when I found help, driving 45 min to therapy worsened my symptoms. So I hung out at my local yoga studio. I went walking, then running, in nature. I gradually got back on my bike. And finally found a local practioner or two. But there was still something missing. A mentor or teacher, a sense of empowerment, real tools, support from others with concussion..So as I kept improving, I made it my mission the next few years to create the missing piece and share it with others. And so my friends...after a year of hard work, here it is. The education and movement practices you need to completely uplevel your concussion recovery." Shelley
"What an amazing and profound gift this Post Concussion Recovery Program was to my life! It has completely changed my life and instilled in me mind, body, and spiritual practices that have made such a difference and impact on my complete whole body recovery for my overall health! I am so incredibly thankful to Shelley for creating this program!!."
"This program has put me on a clear path. I do not need to search and scramble for answers and guidance. Shelley navigates, supports us and challenges us through the daily obstacles of concussion ..
The yoga classes are incredibly valuable to have on hand at any time I need them..grounding and somatics classes have been my favourite so far; they create safety in my brain and body.
This course extends beyond concussion recovery, into a new, more mindful way of living. Thank You."
“Thank you 🙏. You helped me do all the right things after my concussion … who knew there were so many!? Doing normal stuff early, exercising for the brain, pacing, brain breaks…I learned a lot!
The yoga helped me see I wasn’t breathing properly and my body was holding so much tension from the trauma. It also helped me to calm my nervous system and get my neck and body moving again without getting scared by symptoms”
