Kathryn Bruni-Young - Head Faculty Member
Kathryn has been practicing yoga and movement her entire life. Always interested in strength, she naturally gravitated towards arm balances, pushups and handstands in her practice. However, repetitive injuries led her to begin to explore other strength, movement, and healing practices that now form the foundation of her teaching. Her passion is to teach how to find strength in ways that are unimaginable. Her fine attention to detail and calm present energy empower students to reach new potential without being pushed to the limit. Her study of trauma and the nervous system has inspired her to look at movement on a different level, using sensitivity as a way to discover greatness.
Kathryn has completed many different certifications, and among her favorites is the (Poliquin) PICP Level 2 focusing on structural balance through weight training. In the spring of 2015 Kathryn won the Ontario Championships for raw powerlifting under the guidance of her strength coach Lovedeep Dhunna. She also holds a certificate in holistic nutrition from the Institute of Holistic Nutrition (Toronto), and is in her first year of study with Berns Galloway in Somatic Experiencing.
Kathryn runs a small teacher training program in Cornwall, Ontario, teaches workshops and intensives around Canada, offers online webinars and courses and is the co-founder of Yoga Detour YTT Program in Toronto. She is currently writing a series of books on body awareness, strength development, and the hybrid style of practice she teaches.
