Lindsay Mustard

Lindsay Mustard

Osteopathic Manual Practitioner

Lindsay is a graduate of the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy. Her interest in health and wellness was sparked in high school where she grew up playing competitive hockey, soccer, badminton, basketball, volleyball, downhill and cross-country skiing. Her love for sports and exercise exposed Lindsay to yoga at a young age.  She quickly learned that mobility and flexibility are key components in every training program and that it would help others live a healthier, more mobile and functional life. This led her to complete over 700 hours of Yoga Teacher Training ranging from Yin to Hatha, Vinyasa and Yoga Tune Up. 

From there, she pursued an education in Holistic Nutrition, where she became a Certified Nutritional Practitioner and ran a private practice for 4 years. Throughout that time, Lindsay also coached personal training clients, spin, strength/conditioning and CrossFit Classes while attending the CAO. In 2018, Lindsay obtained her Certified Aromatherapist designation and interwove aromatherapy into her private practice to offer another health tool to her clients. In 2020, Lindsay pivoted her practice to working directly with health-related businesses, working as a content creator through recipe development, blogging and giveaway coordination. In December of 2021, Lindsay founded the Student Osteopathic Resource Council at the Canadian Academy of Osteopathy, along with 3 other students, and began working as the team leader to assist in the writing of 5 Osteopathic books alongside their principal.

Aside from Osteopathy, Lindsay can be found working out at the gym with friends, reading, cooking, hiking, and spending time with loved ones.
