Maxine, co-owner of Therapeutic Approach Yoga Studio has been teaching yoga since 1997. She is a Certified Interdisciplinary Yoga Instructor at the Professional level (500+ hours). Maxine has degrees in Kinesiology and Occupational Therapy (honors) and is studying Osteopathy with the Canadian College of Osteopathy, based in Montreal. She works as Mike’s physiotherapy assistant and sees clients one on one for yoga therapy or for individualized exercise sessions. These exercise sessions focus on your individual needs and goals. These can be covered through your Physiotherapy insurance if you begin with an assessment with T.A.H.C.’s Physiotherapist, Mike Munro.
Maxine is also studying to be an osteopath. This service cannot be covered under your osteopathy insurance. If you would like to pay “out of pocket” for her services her rate is $60 (+tax) per hour.
Maxine is also certified to offer Pranassage (TM), which combines yoga and bodywork and produces deep relaxation in the receiver. When you are carrying unnecessary tension, gravity exaggerates the load. When you work with gravity to discover the natural way the body is designed to move, you remain balanced and free, with all of the systems in the body working efficiently and in harmony. Maxine is Therapeutic Approach Yoga Studio’s senior yoga instructor and has been offering group and individual Yoga classes and Teacher Training programs since 1997.
“The best explanation I can offer for an osteopathic approach is my story. I had years of plantar fasciitis and sought after and received many complementary health treatments. Nothing helped long-term until I saw an osteopath. My osteopath said my uterus was pushed to the left since being pregnant with one of my babies. She did work on my uterus and my foot got better”.
Client testimonial: “Our last Osteo session had a deeply beneficial effect. My gait was unencumbered, the “stutter steps” that lead to falling were gone. No one has ever diagnosed what is wrong with my gait, and known what to do about it, before you!” B. M.
Maxine is currently accepting new clients. She is in her 5th year of studies with the Canadian College of Osteopathy. Although she has degrees in Occupational Therapy and Kinesiology, her services are NOT covered by extended health care yet as she is still an osteopathic student. She charges $60 + tax per 50 minute session.
