She has completed her NDT/Bobath certificate course and continues to take post-graduate courses to advance her training in neurological rehabilitation. Lynn has also obtained her Level 2 Manual Therapy Lower Quadrant certification under the Canadian Orthopaedic Division and has taken courses in vestibular rehabilitation, SFMA (Selective Functional Movement Assessment), and chronic pain management.

Along with her physiotherapy training, Lynn has also completed her 500hr Yoga Instructor Certification in India in 2010, and enjoys incorporating elements of yoga into her physiotherapy practice. In the past few years, Lynn has had the opportunity to take further training to adapt yoga to the neurological population and completed a teacher training in Portland to offer the Love Your Brain yoga program at Neuromotion to individuals with brain injuries.

Outside of the clinic, Lynn enjoys cycling, yoga, and staying active in the outdoors exploring our beautiful Vancouver Island.
