What is Strong Mobility?
This is our first active mobility program combining strengthening exercises and yoga poses.
Strong Mobility is ideal for two very different types of people…
1. Very mobile (and hypermobile) individuals who need to build engagement and strength throughout their ranges.
2. Not-so-mobile people who need to increase their range of motion.
The interesting thing is Strong Mobility works amazingly well for both populations.
Each class will include six movements in total…
The first three will be exercises i.e. jefferson curls, split squats, lateral raises, all through deep range of motion to increase stretch and mobility.
The next portion of the classes will take you through three yoga poses, practiced with weights/bands to increase engagement and, you guessed it, mobility.
Range of motion alone isn’t the answer, what we really need is strength and resilience in those deeper positions.
Balance strength with mobility, strengthen your end ranges

“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.“
Dates and Details:
Two classes each week, join live or watch the recordings.

The first part of each class will guide you through the exercises and the second part will guide you through the yoga poses with a more flowing feel.
Kathryn will start by teaching the movements with no weights to ensure everyone is comfortable and confident. From there participants can decide how heavy or light they want to try.
We recommend lighter weights for this program, between 5-15 lbs.
***Participants must be able to get up and down from the floor easily. Please note that we will be moving through spinal flexion and twisting. Adaptations and modifications will be demonstrated for participants who aren’t comfortable with loaded flexion.
light to medium dumbbell or kettlebell
