More About The Teacher's Immersion 2.0

How the course works

This course begins with a Strength Foundations weekend taught by Kathryn. This weekend will get you up to date on all the keywords, concepts, exercise science principles, and more.

This weekend also includes a workshop with Neil Pearson on pain science and how we can help people build strength, even if they are in pain.

Following the first weekend, we will meet each Wednesday from 12-3pm EST (Toronto/NYC time). Each Wednesday will run on the following schedule

12-12:45 pm – training led by Kathryn

12:45-1 pm – snack break

1-3 pm – workshop/discussion with Kathryn or guest faculty

Each week you will have 1 hour of homework i.e. taking a class, reading an article or listening to a podcast.

Learning and practicing strength

Throughout this training, you will not only learn about strength but experience it.

The 10-week strength progression taught by Kathryn will help bring the information to life and you will walk away from this course with practical experience in strength training.

You will also learn to craft your own strength program, as well as bring strength to the yoga, pilates, or fitness classes you already teach.

Calls will be recorded and available for 1 year

Wednesday's from Oct 5 - Dec 7 12-3pm EST

Intro Weekend Oct 1-2 12-5pm EST both days

“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.

 Who this course is for…

This three-month educational experience is for yoga, pilates, and group fitness teachers who want to bring more accessible strength building to their classes.

This training does not teach a specific method. You will learn skills, theories, movements, and the latest research on exercise science that will be immediately applicable to your own classes.

Wanting to use more bands and weights in your classes? Not interested in conventional fitness with roots in diet culture and outdated ideas? Do you work with a range of ages, sizes, and want to teach strength that is accessible? Don’t know what to do with your private clients to help them progress?

This is for you!

Learn to…

* Adapt exercises to meet the unique needs of the individual

* Understand physical adaptation and it’s relationship to safety

* Move beyond alignment based teaching

* Teach and practice your own strength progressions

* Bring strength to whatever it is you teach, in your own way

* Challenge beliefs about movement without throwing the baby out with the bath water

I love just about ANYTHING that Kathryn teaches! Her depth of knowledge and laid-back style of teaching is right up my alley. Not only do I enjoy and get great benefits from both Kathryn and Kyle’s classes, but everything I learn is so wonderful to incorporate into my own yoga/movement classes.
