Your Brain Matters(TM) Yoga program offers therapeutic movement and meditation to support people who have been affected by Traumatic Brain Injury. A traumatic brain injury is defined as being caused by a blow or impact to the head that results in disturbances of the brain’s function. Each TBI is unique, and presents differently depending on many factors such as the area of the brain the injury occurred, the severity, and the person’sage.
TBI’s can cause a variety of symptoms, often because these symptoms are not visible to an observer, a TBI can also be labelled an “invisible injury”.
