Jill Bodak

Jill Bodak is a Manual Osteopath, Writer, Speaker and Anatomy Educator in Toronto, Ontario. Her debut non-fiction work, "Loved Into Being" is a brave and honest depiction of life after stroke through the eyes of a daughter. In it we learn about the ways that the sharp and clinical elements of her personality bump up against her softer, feeling self. Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Bodak is a lover of northern forests, cold lakes, and clear skies. Life beyond her hometown has brought her to the study of the human body, movement, sound, and meditation. Her writing navigates these hard and soft spots in her own interior and invites the reader into this private landscape that includes joy, terror, grief and unshakeable love. Jill has a Kinesiology degree from Lakehead University and a Master's degree in Osteopathic Manual Therapy from The Canadian Academy of Osteopathy. She was a varsity athlete and an avid competitor of all types in her youth. Now, she studies the Emotionally Integrated Voice pedagogy of Fides Krucker and has a ten-year history in the tradition of Zen meditation. She has taught wellness retreats across the country. Since the onset of her father's stroke in 2020, Jill has been reading, writing, teaching, and helping him heal. She has used the things she learned on his behalf to help countless others with brain injury, cognitive delay, motor deficits and grief. She continues to run a clinical practice that she loves, helping people find a felt sense of their own bodies that lets them move through the world with more ease.She is a force of nature. She lives in the West-End of Toronto with her partner, her son, and her dog.
