Stand Ahead

Stand Ahead


On December 2nd, the first-ever Women’s Brain Health Day, take a stand, and upend the way we view dementia and other brain-aging diseases that disproportionately affect women. Literally.

130 Queens Quay East | #4th floor | Toronto, ON M5A 0P6

Join us and take part in the Stand Ahead™ Challenge by doing a headstand*, to stand up against research bias and stand ahead for women’s brain health, challenging 2 others, posting it and tagging #standahead, and donating to Women’s Brain Health Initiative**. This global charity is solely dedicated to protecting the brain health of women with cutting edge research and preventative health education.

Take a stand for the women in your life that you love….
your mom, sister, daughter, wife, or best friend.

First 50 people to sign up and participate will receive a free Stand Ahead™ yoga mat with carry bag and a Stand Ahead™ or Mind Over Matter® t-shirt.

Funds raised for sex-based research will be matched by Brain Canada!

Who will you #standahead for?

Light snack available. Limited Capacity.

** Thanks for your generous support!

*While headstand has the potential to provide wide-ranging benefits, the pose is not suitable for everyone. For instance, people with back or neck injuries, high blood pressure, stroke, eye problems, or a heart condition should not attempt the posture. Also, people who experience migraines or balance issues might want to avoid headstand as it may aggravate those conditions. The pose should be avoided during pregnancy, unless the woman already has a well-established headstand practice (in other words, pregnancy is not the time to begin doing headstand).
