Dasha, is the clinical director and co-owner of Symmetrix Exercise & Rehab. She brings 8 years of clinical, sport and gym experience to her clients and team. Dasha’s expertise is comprehensive, from active rehabilitation and personal training in the gym to aquatic therapy in the pool to ergonomics for workplaces. She has experience working with athletes with lacrosse and hockey teams, chronic pain clients, cardiac rehabilitation clients and everyone in-between. She has won several awards for her work including Vancouver’s Top Kinesiology Studio for 2022 and Kinesiologist of the Year for 2021 (Canadian Kinesiology Alliance).
One important feature of Dasha’s clinical style is her mind-body approach to training. She helps her clients understand how motivation, building healthy habits, goal setting, and relaxation/restoration are just as important as showing up for regular kinesiology sessions. She is passionate about helping people improve their function, movement and strength. Dasha loves to see others achieve their goals and deeply cares about her clients’ success. She has a passion for growing and nurturing her community and she likes to learn new things and take on new challenges.
As an outdoor enthusiast Dasha is regularly doing trips to the mountains. She loves backcountry skiing, multi-day hiking, and rock climbing. She takes her outdoor activities seriously: she once set out on a two day hike over the Howe Sound Crest Trail to arrive at her friends’ wedding in Porteau Cove, and has cycled from Vancouver to Baja Sur, Mexico. She’s also incredibly creative at home; she ferments, cans and preserves food like tomatoes and kombucha. She is always finding ways to eat healthier and more nutritious whole foods to fuel her active lifestyle.
