Courtney Chan

Pilates Instructor, Kinesiologist, Physical Therapy Support Worker

Education: Master of Physiotherapy, Bachelor of Kinesiology

Courtney is a Vancouver native, where she grew up dancing (mostly ballet and jazz)—thus began her love of movement.  Courtney completed her Bachelor of Kinesiology degree at the University of British Columbia in 2017, after which she worked alongside physiotherapists as a kinesiologist guiding patients through post-injury rehabilitation.
 
Courtney’s work in active rehabilitation inspired her to continue to grow as a therapist, and she then went on to complete her Masters of Physiotherapy degree at the University of Sydney. Upon graduating, Courtney started treating as a physiotherapist at a private musculoskeletal clinic in Australia using techniques from the ConnectTherapy™ model and integrating it with clinical Pilates. She also taught a variety of small group Pilates classes and private clinical pilates sessions, where she enjoyed coaching clients how to move in new ways. Courtney finds that the best part of combining ConnectTherapy and clinical Pilates is getting that “ah-ha!” moment from her patients when they get in tune with their bodies.
 
Since relocating to Vancouver, Courtney is currently awaiting registration as a physiotherapist and is joining Synergy as a Physical Therapy Support Worker (PTSW) and Registered Kinesiologist. Her training in Pilates, Kinesiology, and Physiotherapy enables her to provide a unique level of skill in her sessions. She’ll be teaching our Monday and Wednesday evening group ConnectPilates classes, and offering one-on-one and semi-private sessions as well.
You can book sessions with Courtney here – she’s ready to train and progress all of your ConnectTherapy Drivers and support all your movement goals.
In her free time, Courtney loves to go for hikes and walk around the seawall, as well as trying a variety of different workout classes. In the winter, she loves to ski and play curling.
