Description

Kathryn Bruni-Young


Kathryn has been teaching yoga and strength based movement for over a decade. She is the host of the Mindful Strength Podcast, an international teacher and a creative thinker in the progressive postural yoga movement. Kathryn’s work focusses on the benefits of strength, functional movement and mobility training and how they can be applied to the postural yoga practice. Her workshops also center on critical thinking, individuality, teaching principles, pain science, biomechanics and joyful movement.


Workshop Schedule


Saturday AM – The science of strength

The weekend 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 such as: progressive loading, tissue adaptation, joint centration, pain science and “optimal” alignment will be broken down in detail and the group will be encouraged to join the conversation. Kathryn will introduce the Mindful Strength method and give you 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?

The afternoon session will cover: 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, we 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

The second day 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 yoga practioners lately, you will have heard a lot about the glutes and hamstrings! We will cover: leg strength, hip centration, balance, dynamic stability and the feet as sensors.


Sunday PM – Tying it all together with mobility

'Mobility' means different things to different people. The final part of this weekend 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.
