Mindful Strength Upper Body and Core Movement
Sat June 16 | 2:30pm – 5:30pm at Moksha Yoga St. John’s

Upper body strength is more challenging than lower body strength because the design of our shoulders is so different from our hips and legs. Upper body movement requires more variety, progressive loading, and dynamic stabilization which are all topics that will be covered during this workshop. Kathryn will break down strategies for upper body work including wrist and shoulder preparation and mobility. This workshop will also address core strength, what that even means, and some common misconceptions we have about our core. This workshop will rekindle your love of upper body strength, and will make movements like push-ups, chatturanga, arm balances and functional movements much more accessible and attainable.

Mindful Strength Whole Body Approach

Sun June 17 | 2:30pm – 5:30pm at Pony Locale

Whole body movement is where it’s at when we dive into topics like functional movement and strength because nothing in the body really works in isolation. This workshop will outline a number of whole body movements, locomotive movements that will take you off your mat, and mobility practices that will make you feel supple and dynamic. Mindful movement can be slow and controlled, but it can also be quick and responsive to the world around us. This workshop will inspire you to view yoga and movement in new ways and leave you curious about what is possible.

Mindful Strength Teacher’s Workshop – **SOLD OUT**
Sun June 17 | 10:00am – 1:00pm at Pony Locale

***SOLD OUT***

This workshop is focused for teachers + instructors of any movement based practice (yoga, pilates, personal trainers, etc.)
Kathryn teaches on the faculty of five YTT programs, she runs her own teacher’s intensives and she has a passion for helping teachers develop their skills to meet the ever changing needs of our students. Strength practices not only compliment the yoga practice, but it can elevate yoga, pilates and other forms of body weight movement. This workshop will highlight how the body adapts from day one, and how we can support our tissues through a steady adaptation process to prevent injuries and move better. You will walk away with practical tools that can be implemented right away, and movements that you will want to throw into your classes the following week. This workshop will cover some upper body movement and lower body movement plus questions about combining strength with yoga.

Prices include HST.
