The Mindful Strength Teacher’s Intensive is the best way for teachers to expand and elevate their skills in a small-group training environment.
These intensives are capped at 12-16 students to ensure high level learning and support during the trainings, we know how much get’s lost in the shuffle in a group of thirty or more. Participants will learn many movements and exercises to cultivate strength, plus accessible variations for all ages and levels. As a group we will unpack and debunk myths around core strength, breathing, mobility, tissue adaptation, injuries and how to practice “yoga”. Class sequencing, structure, and cueing are also main topics, along with sustainable business strategies for teachers.
Each day participants will get a chance to practice/learn with Kathryn, participate in some type of group work, take a workshop with a guest instructor and make new connections both on and off the mat. Days will run from approximately 8:30am to 4:30pm with a lunch break. Participants should come prepared for full days, and a lot of learning!
The intensive begins with a ten-week online course that will get the basic information out of the way so that when we meet we can take a deep dive into the material. The online portion includes exclusive interviews with guest teachers Jane Clapp (movement for trauma), Molly Boeder-Harris (trauma informed yoga), Grant Hutchinson (mindfulness), Annie Bray(meditation for beginners) Steve Donald (science of breathing), Joey Gault (digital marketing) and Sasha Padron (prenatal movement). This online course will provide not only a huge amount of content and inspiration, but a reference tool that participants can go back and learn from indefinitely.
The next Mindful Strength Teacher’s Intensive will be held July 19-23, 2019
Cost: $1,500 + HST (CAD)
