The Mindful Strength Podcast
This is a really interesting conversation that offers new ways to consider practicing mindful awareness outside the usual contexts of quiet solitude and relaxation.
Catherine Cowey is a researcher and personal trainer with extensive professional (and personal) experience with hypermobility. Kathryn and Catherine discuss the full spectrum of joint laxity to hypermobility to other conditions like Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Catherine helps to dispel many of the common misconceptions related to these conditions and how beneficial strength training can be for everyone, including folks who are clinically diagnosed with hypermobility disorder.

Tons of great conversations to hear
This covers so many different aspects of body/mind practices and is a chance to explore really broadly. Well worth listening.
Inspirational and informative!
Inspiring podcast! Kathryn packs every episode with tons of amazing content, guests, and interviews that will motivate, uplift and inspire you. I highly recommend!
This podcast is a real deal!
I’ve been listening to this podcast for a while and what a gem it is! There’s so much out there but Kathryn always finds the most knowledgeable and authentic people to interview and does it from a place of curiosity and practically which is so important for movement enthusiasts and professionals alike. I really appreciate what you do, Kathryn!
I have been following Kathryn online for sometime and had the pleasure of hosting her for a weekend workshop. I can’t say enough about the value of meeting her and having the opportunity to experience her style of yoga and Mindful Strength. It was a combination of her easy-going manner, non judgemental outlook and well-rounded knowledge base that made it an inspiring weekend. Most surprisingly for me was her ability to challenge me to think critically about the “why”.
Hi, I’m Kathryn
My full name is Kathryn Bruni-Young and my pronouns are she and her. I’ve been teaching yoga and strength-based movement since the age of 17. I started practicing Ashtanga yoga in my mother’s studio in Toronto (Downward Dog Yoga Centre), and after experiencing some aches and pains decided to branch out and learn from other movement modalities. Learning from different teachers helped me become a critical thinker and question what I had been taught about the body, injuries, and what safe movement is. To date, I’ve competed as a strength athlete, immersed myself in pain science and multidisciplinary movement education. I’ve been hosting the Mindful Strength Podcast for close to four years, and I’ve been running the Mindful Strength Membership for three years. I teach classes for the general public as well as educational trainings for teachers and clinicians. In non-COVID times I would be traveling the world to teach workshops as well as teaching online. My main influences are my mother Diane Bruni along with Greg Lehman, Jules Mitchell, Neil Pearson, Ido Portal and all the guests I host on the Mindful Strength Podcast.
