Vancouver Brain Injury Association

Brain Gain Fridays welcomes a diverse group of people interested in strengthening their brain. Together we engage in music therapy, art therapy, meditation, neurologically beneficial exercise, social activities and FUN!

Where: The Inman Room, North Shore Neighbourhood House; 225 East 2nd Street, North Vancouver, BC V7L 1C4

When: Every Friday at 1pm (Sept – June)

The Brain Gain Fridays event has neurologically beneficial exercise every week and frequent art therapy, music therapy, games, puzzles, social integration, and fun. Previously, there was no similar event for acquired brain injury survivors unless their mechanism of injury was a stroke.

Exercise is for health recovery for improved balance, coordination, and neuroplasticity. Dance instruction, yoga, tai chi or other exercise promoting health recovery and neuroplasticity might also be included in the program.

The North Shore Brain Injury Recovery Program runs every Friday afternoon from 1:30-4:30 pm.

Mandate
