Kathryn Bruni-Young has been teaching yoga, strength and movement for over a decade. Her revolutionary system combines the science of strength training with the mentality of mindfulness and yoga, and she has a passion for education. Kathryn is the host of the Mindful Strength Podcast, and was named one of the top fifteen millennial yoga teachers to watch by Yoga Journal magazine. She teaches workshops all over the world, and is excited to be teaching in Wolfville!
June 9-10th, Location: Bishop Hall, 10am-1pm, 2:30pm-5pm on Saturday and Sunday. Workshop is limited to 30 participants.
This weekend workshop will begin with a talk outlining how we can use the science of strength training, biomechanics, and mindfulness to enhance our movement practice, whatever it might be. Kathryn talks about how tissues adapt, how we can understand our complex bodies through movement, and how we can make practice joyful. Over the two days his workshop will get your body moving in new ways, from upper body strength, to lower body, breathing, yoga poses, functional movements and much more. This workshop is perfect for teachers and practitioners of all disciplines who are seeking new inspiration that will change the way you look at movement and yoga practice. Kathryn aims to make strength training empowering and accessible for all bodies. She has specific experience working with athletes, and seniors, and she is confident that she can make the practice of Mindful Strength work for just about anyone. Her main inspirations come from gymnastics training, Ido Portal Method, Somatic Experiencing, playful movement, Pilates and conventional strength training.
We have opened up five spaces for students who want to only attend one day of the workshop. Although we have opened up registration for Sunday only, if you are new to this work we recommend you attend Saturday if possible. Participants who have worked with Kathryn in the past are welcome to join on either Saturday or Sunday, or attend the full weekend.
Saturday will focus more on the core and upper body, while Sunday will be more focussed on the lower body. Both days will include strength, mobility, locomotive movement, lecture, practice and so much more.
