Almost 3000 brain injuries occur every year in Nova Scotia - in an instant a life is changed forever. For many brain injury survivors, access to a community of individuals who understand the challenges of living with an invisible injury is very limited. At Brain Injury NS, we are committed to providing programs, education, recovery support and advocacy. Brain injury survivors and their families look to us every day as a resource and touchstone of support across the spectrum of brain injury.
In April 2019, we are so pleased to be bringing the Love Your Brain Yoga concept and program to Halifax and Nova Scotia! In partnership with Shanti Yoga, Lululemon & their Here to Be Program, and the LoveYourBrain Foundation, LoveYourBrain Yoga-Halifax will be launched this spring...the LoveYourBrain Yoga Program is designed to build community, foster resilience and help people understand the importance of loving their brain. The program incorporates a 6-week FUNdamentals series and ongoing LoveYourBrain-friendly yoga classes that will help so many brain injury survivors and their caregivers...WE CAN'T WAIT to get started. This campaign will support LoveYourBrain Halifax directly - for training instructors, equipment and promotional costs and subsidizing participants to ensure everyone can participate...brains, all we are.
