Mindful Strength Weekend Immersion with Kathryn Bruni-Young
Mindful Strength Weekend Immersion with Kathryn Bruni-Young
$340.00
Description

The Mindful Strength Weekend Immersion with Kathryn Bruni-Young will spark a deep curiosity whether you are a yoga practitioner, teacher, personal trainer or a person interested in movement. Strength training can inform and transform bodies, from tissue adaptation to biomechanics and inner confidence, a little bit of strength can go a long way. Kathryn believes that strength training can be more accessible than other forms of movement, and that it has healing qualities that are especially important for yogis and older folks. This weekend is welcoming to all ages and identities.

Saturday AM - The Science of Strength

This workshop will begin with a group practice, followed by a discussion that looks at where we have been and where we are going in the yoga community. Key concepts like progressive loading, tissue adaptation, joint centration, and optimal alignment will be broken down in detail and participants will be encouraged to join the conversation. This workshop will introduce the Mindful Strength method and give participants an idea of why strength is essential to movement and life.

Saturday PM - What do the Core and the Upper Body Have to Do With Each Other?

This workshop will begin with breathing, intra abdominal pressure, and core responsivity. There has been a lot of confusion around what core strength is and how we work with it. From there the group will venture into wrist prep, shoulder strength, push-ups, pulling, chaturanga, and all of the questions that come up when we look at upper body strength. A big discussion point will be what does your breath have to do with your shoulders?

Sunday AM - The Lower Body From the Feet Up

This workshop will begin with a group practice followed by a discussion on the lower body and how we can strengthen our hips, knees, and feet. If you have been around yogis lately you will have heard a lot about the glutes and hamstrings! Leg strength, hip centration, balance, dynamic stability and the feet as sensors and much more will be discussed in this workshop.

Sunday PM - Tying it All Together with Mobility

Mobility means different things to different people. This workshop will look at active range vs. passive range, optimal range of motion, how the nervous system makes us stiff, and how the strength practice is the mobility practice. Certain yoga poses will be outlined and critiqued, and the group will eventually move off their yoga mats and around the room.

Cost is $340. Early Bird if paid by May 1 $290.

Lunch will be available for $25 per day. Details to come.

This workshop will be held at Yoga Weyr - 1990 Frey Rd, Nanaimo
