Mandy is Presenting at the Upcoming ICAA Conference

Press Release from Urban Poling Inc.

As you may know our co-director Mandy Shintani, OT & gerontologist, is presenting at the upcoming International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) Live Virtual Conference. Mandy's talk will focus on facilitating balance, confidence, endurance, and fluid movement for residents with Parkinson’s with evidence-based group exercise. This seated/standing program incorporates music, mindfulness, and dance with specialized Nordic walking poles. Research shows these poles promote stability and proper posture, aid in more fluid movement, and increase confidence and endurance. Motivate your residents with an active way to participate in group exercise while improving outcomes for mental, cognitive, and physical health.


Mandy is a globally recognized speaker having presented in Australia, the UK, Ireland, the USA, and numerous times over the past fifteen years here in Canada.
