“Creating a safe space for recovery & wellness is my goal in my physiotherapy and physio-yoga-practice. Focusing on each client, providing care that empowers them to achieve their wellness goals in their own way, in their own time.”
Tammy is a highly respected physiotherapist since 1995. Graduating from Dalhousie University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and spending the next 20+ years working across Canada in a variety of care settings. Among many post-secondary courses, Tammy graduated from the University of Alberta in 2007 with the Certificate Program of Medical Acupuncture, instructed by Dr. Stephen Aung. This Traditional Chinese Medicine approach to physiotherapy has been strongly influencing her approach to care.
In 2017, Tammy completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with YogaCara Global in Hawaii and is registered with Yoga Alliance as a RYT200. She currently teaches traditional yoga classes once a week in her hometown, Red Deer, Alberta. She also teaches structural alignment, mobility & lengthening, balance & agility, and pain management & stress reduction, workshops on request. Creating a fusion of the philosophy of yoga with physiotherapy and Chinese Medicine has created a unique approach to care that Tammy is always excited to share with the community.
Tammy has worked with amateur and professional athletes, “desk dwellers”, “weekend warriors”, yogis and yoginis, people with injuries from accidents and those looking to prevent injury. Her approach to care is individualized and tailored to each type of person and their goals for health & wellness.
Aside from her many skills as a health practitioner, Tammy is raising a family of her own, teaching therapeutic skills courses at Red Deer College, and finding time for yoga, reading, getting outside as much as possible, and travelling to teach or simply relax.
