Our whole body approach and specialized expertise in physiotherapy, yoga, and wellness services help you to become healthy and whole. By combining ancient yoga postures based in fundamental human movements with the modern practice of physiotherapy that has adopted much of the same treatment protocols, we are committed to providing physical therapy and yoga to individuals and groups who have typically not had access to such services. Core to our beliefs is that yoga is for everyone, and everyone deserves to live and move free of pain.
Founded by Adrianne Vangool, Vangool Wellness is all about giving people the tools to live better and do the things that are important to them, and making physiotherapy, yoga, and other wellness services accessible to all.
Our growing wellness team is made up of specialists that can provide a multi-disciplinary approach to preventing, treating and maintaining your injuries. We take a proactive, long term approach to wellness and we face challenges head on, working with our clients so they achieve their health and movement goals, liberating them to do the things they want to do.Meet Our Team
