Cora Geroux - WOKE Yoga

On today’s episode I talk with Kathryn Bruni-Young. Kathryn grew up in her mom’s yoga studio in Toronto, she took her first teacher training when she was 17, and at 22 she started to notice aches and pains after her practice. In the years that followed Kathryn began to look outside the yoga world for answers to her physical symptoms, and along the way studied with Ido Portal, and began lifting weights seriously. In 2015 Kathryn won the Ontario Provincials in powerlifting. Since that time Kathryn has created all kinds of different resources for yogi’s who are curious about adding strength training to their movement practice, and is the host of the mindful strength podcast.  


In many ways ( apart from the powerlifting championship ) Kathryn and I share a very similar story, in that I started practicing as a teenager, in my early 20’s my body was in a lot of pain while I practiced, and strength training has completely turned my world around when it comes to feeling physically stable, strong, capable and young. 


So, if you’re a long term practitioner who is suffering from niggles, aches or pains or even injury I think you’re really going to love this episode with Kathryn. Or even if your brand new to yoga, Kathryn unpacks some really great info about how to progress in your practice in a, safe,  intelligent and effective way. 


I hope you enjoy the show.
