A Heartfelt Thank You

A very special thank you to all of our patients, friends, families, colleagues, community members, and fellow small business owners that supported and continue to support Synergy during this challenging time. Thank you to our provincial and federal governments, the Centre for Women in Business and the Nova Scotia Business Inc, for your small business grants.

To my wonderful team of therapists, thank you for going the extra mile to support our patients, each other and our work home. I am forever grateful.

Our months of closure were definitely a challenging time for Synergy. We had to quickly pivot our business online, and through many tears over technology, we somehow pulled it together. We created an online class platform, live streamed classes, zoomed a full spring session, and now have a fully hybrid studio offering both online and in person classes. A very special thank you to everyone that supported us virtually, as we were figuring it out as we went!

We did have some fun along the way, in true Synergy fashion. We donned lipstick and dove fearlessly into our live stream classes, Martha dressed up and hosted a live eighties workout video, and Jessica donned her cat suit for an uncanny Tiger King workout. Together we hosted our Gin & Gina's event, with over 100 women tuning in to learn about pelvic health. We taught over 50 free Facebook live classes, that reached not only our regular students, but people all across the country. We also filmed and posted free youtube workout videos for seniors. Francesca launched a complete prenatal series of classes on Synergy STREAM, and Martha zoomed biweekly classes to our national gymnastics team. For a clinic that was closed, there was a lot happening behind the scenes. Your ongoing support encouraged us to innovate and create.
A Season of Change

Jessica is moving to the Valley, and will be wrapping up her treatments and classes mid November. We have been so lucky to have Jessica on our team, and will look forward to a Synergy Valley road trip!
Jessica will continue to film classes for our Synergy STREAM, so you'll still be able to join her for an online class anytime you like. Check it out!
We are excited to announce that Bree Bates will joining us full time in November. Bree has been part time at Synergy for the past year, and we are so happy she has decided to make Synergy her full time home. Bree will be in the office 5 days a week, and teaching our level 1,2 and 3 classes. She is an experienced runner, who specializes in orthopedic, and pelvic health.

We continue to offer in-studio classes, with a virtual Zoom option for those of you that prefer to join us from home. Our in studio class numbers are strictly limited to 9 students per class in order to allow for social "mat" distancing in the studio. Our classes are also bubbled, so you'll always be with the same group.

We also offer an unlimited zoom registration add-on! Joining us more than once a week is a great way to boost your mental and physical health.

Why are we switching?

We'll be sending more info about Jane over the next few weeks. We appreciate your patience during our transition, and are excited to create ease in your scheduling experience.
