Carrie Owerko’s 10-hour weekend intensive offers a multi-disciplinary approach to movement integrating mindfulness practices with sports science to teach everyone from yoga practitioners to athletes and dancers intelligent ways to improve mobility, resiliency and performance. It will held at the Dome Corporation Gymnasium in Ariake, near the 2020 Olympic sites.
Yoga practitioners will discover how the latest developments in movement science expand the possibilities of the yoga practice, opening new doors not only to improved mobility but also to our sense of well-being.
Athletes, coaches and fitness trainers will learn how movement and mindfulness practices can improve performance, mind state and capacity, as well as mitigate the risk of injury and aid in recovery.
For our purposes, mobility goes much deeper than flexibility training. It includes flexibility, but also the strength and motor control throughout one’s available range of motion. This is what we call active mobility--or mobility that you can actually use!
Lastly, we will introduce play into the practice. By finding joy in our work, we are more intrinsically motivated. This way we address the whole person and their health (physical and mental) and well-being above all else.
