Dr. Outerbridge has had a fascination with human anatomy and movement since as far back as he can remember. This passion developed through a diversity of athletic pursuits and teaching a variety of sports including rock climbing, gymnastics, track and field and white water kayaking. He was first introduced to Yoga at an Ashram in the Himalayas in India in 2001 and has continued his yoga practice ever since.
Academically his interests led to a B.Sc. in human kinetics, a M.Sc. in neuroscience and biomechanics, and a degree as a doctor of Chiropractics. During his academic career, Dr. Outerbridge ran an ergonomics consulting business and a personal training business. He was a teaching assistant in anatomy at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, taught anatomy and physiology at Kine Concept Massage Therapy School, and is currently teaching advanced anatomy for yoga teachers.
Dr. Outerbridge ran a multidisciplinary health clinic in Ottawa for 10 years that provided medical, massage, chiropractic and naturopathic services. As a chiropractor, his focus in practice included the prevention and management of occupational and sports related injuries, including exercise protocols and soft tissue management using Active Release Technique®, and Graston Technique®.
Dr. Outerbridge sold his practice in 2011 to help launch World Spine Care (www.worldspinecare.org), an international, inter-professional non-profit organization that is bringing full service care for spinal disorders to under-served regions around the world. He continues as clinical director after spending 2 years in Botswana developing the pilot project. Part of his work has been to launch the World Spine Care yoga project, a teacher-training program for locals at the World Spine Care clinics around the world.
