What did you find most valuable about the Physio-Yoga classes?

  • Just made such a difference in my pain level and I can feel a lot more strength in my core.

  • An awesome combination of lessons, humour, and instruction. I  love this class.

  • The strength, flexibility, balance and calm that come from it. I love it when Denise shares her vast knowledge of physiology, yoga, energy, and general health and well-being.

  • Mix of yoga and physio, physiology, anatomy - especially the anatomy information and explanations. Super instruction at a level I can understand.

  • The intricate depth of knowledge/experience and subtle (and numerous) varieties on classic yoga has breathed new life into my practice. Thanks for the pelvic floor teaching too - very valuable.

  • Everything!! The class helps my mind, body and soul. Love that Denise helps me do poses/exercises correctly so I don't injure myself. Denise is an amazing teacher.

  • The combination of yoga and your physio expertise is invaluable.  Your explanation and information shared is a much appreciated component of this class.

  • How Denise is constantly working to improve her own knowledge and practice and passes that to us.

  • Very personalized and she takes into account your injuries. Gives options to prevent further injury. Education and information including pictures/illustrations. Redirection of exercises to get the most benefit and information on how to apply to life.

  • I have been attending classes for over 3 years as per recommendation of my doctor. My doctor has been very pleased with my progress and reported that after my testing that my bone density along my spine had increased. I had osteopenia and now it is within normal limits. I am 64!

  • What we learn both physically and mentally. I also love that I'm getting stronger.

  • Denise's invaluable guidance and joie-de-vivre.

  • I always learn something.  It's an hour of free mind and tuning into my body.

  • Made me more aware of my posture and I correct myself during the day.  My back is no longer in constant pain.

  • My energy is great and I sleep better the nights I do yoga.

  • Feeling free of pain after the class and throughout the night.

  • That it is very helpful and fun to do with friends.

  • You learn how to exercise when you are at home and just at class.

  • That it was the correct way of doing poses good for you.

" I have been taking this class since it began almost 10 years ago and yet I learn something new almost every week.

Denise constantly seeks to improve her knowledge and practice and brings that to class each week.  The class is constantly evolving and improving and in my opinion is the safest, all encompassing and best yoga class in Cochrane.  I recommend it to everyone.  I am a physically and mentally stronger, more confident woman because of it."

"I am appreciative of being able to make-up classes.  This privilege also indicates the importance of maintaining one's well-being and that you are very supportive of that.  Thank you for providing this."

"I enjoy the Anatomy information!!  It's good to learn about how everything is connected."

"You have made me so much stronger. Thank you."

"You have a great program in your yoga classes - the awareness and focus on the transverse abdominus, pelvic floor and iliocostalis. Now all this supplemented with the FMS stuff - you've got a passion for bringing this functional movement to the public that I've only seen in a few other people (some internet persons included). I am aware of this now, and will continue to be a student of yours till my body won't enable it any longer."


Thanks for your passion for my and your other student's quality of life through your continued learning and teaching of correct functional movement."

"Before I came to Denise and these classes, I was in chronic pain and weakness for a decade.  After 2 years of classes I am rarely in pain and I am actually increasing in strength and mobility.  I feel confidence in my body alignment and have learned so much.  I am very grateful."

"Love that this (class) is taught by an expert in yoga and physio."

"The Energy Medicine surprised me at the benefits I received."

"I know this has made improvements and that it has been the best thing for me."

"Denise explains to fully understand.  I can work at my own pace."

"Loved the classes! Make a video and sell it!"

"Learning how much I enjoy yoga. How good it makes me feel."

"The structure of the core/yoga class builds on a foundation of proper muscle use to strengthen and prevent injury. I have years of yoga experience but in my class at Sunshine Physio I became aware of muscles I wasn't using properly. Mobilizing my pelvic floor has changed how my body responds to a pose. I am a fan and a convert!"

"Incredible direction and teaching.  (I) Was able to do things I never thought I would be able to do again."
