    Episode 52 - Brain Injury Nova Scotia (ED Leona Burkey)

    Episode 52 of follows close on the heels of episode 51, as I talk to Leona Burkey, Executive Director of Brain Injury Association of Nova Scotia. I first met Leona at Dalhousie University School of Physiotherapy as we were both speaking to a class of soon-to-be physiotherapists.

    Episode 51 - Yoga for Acquired Brain Injury (Chloe Luckett, Brain Injury NS, #LoveYourBrain)

    Episode 51 - Yoga for Acquired Brain Injury (Chloe Luckett, Brain Injury NS, #LoveYourBrain)

    This podcast is about how community and helping others can be such a big and important part of living with a brain injury. In the case of my guest, Chloe Luckett, yoga and LoveYourBrain became an extremely important part of, not only her recovery, but of her entire life. Chloe talks about how, with Brain Injury Nova Scotia, she hopes to impart the benefits of yoga, and community, to others, and how it can help with the sense of isolation that many people feel after a brain injury.
    We talk yoga, activity and about our own traumatic brain injuries.
