What makes our core program unique?
When you think of core strength what comes to mind? Crunches, sit-ups, pulling your navel to your spine?
Our core approach has three main parts.
Lift & load Classes will include exercises that target the different parts of the core from abs to hip flexors, glutes, and back muscles. Deadlifts, planks, hip thrusts etc…
Education & reflection More than just an exercise class. This series will include moments of personal reflection, and important information. Live classes will end with Q&A discussion.
Massage & mobility Years of “sitting up straight” rock hard abs, and/or “pulling navel to spine” can tighten our cores in ways that we might not even realize. Part of this program will be dedicated to self massage, breathing and core relaxation.
The core of the body is a complex area to work with, what do we mean by this?
Body image, birth trauma, over-dieting, over engaging, sucking in, peeing pants, bracing hard, stress, digestive issues, surgeries etc…
There’s a lot going on in our cores! If you are looking for a basic, quick fix with a lot of crunches this is not the program for you.
This 14-class program will forever change the way you understand and experience your core. Through this unconventional approach you will learn to soften, engage, breathe, and produce the force you need to lift and move with support and confidence.
If you have a history of persisting pain this program is an incredible way to re-build a strong core foundation.

“I really love Mindful Strength and Kathryn’s awesome teachings. I have strengthened my body SO much and I love all the brilliant movements and sequences Kathryn creates for each part of the body. It is truly a remarkable, life-changing program.“
“Thank you for the amazing classes, as always! I had a baby in April, and my body and capacities changed SO dramatically. It has been so great to take your classes as I started moving again — the emphasis on what you feel instead of what you do really helped me reconnect to a body that felt foreign to me.“
