This is a rare opportunity to work with Katrina on specific strategies in a practical working space. Masterclasses include:
Masterclass 1: Promoting Flowing Movement for Athletic Development
This Matwork Masterclass aims to take you out of your ‘thinking brain’ and give over to sensing and being absorbed in the moment of co-ordination between breath and movement, that provides a flowing, rhythmic movement experience. Within this experience is mindfulness, centredness and connection. This session can be taken as a stand alone masterclass but also links in to the next session on the Reformer.
Masterclass 2: Performance Enhancement and Elite Sports Conditioning
This Reformer Masterclass will include a brief introduction and overview to this topic and practical workout on the Reformer, interspersed with discussion/tutorial on the work. With Katrina’s long standing and very current perspectives on training elite performers and sports persons, you will take away information and practical experience of essential strategies and repertoire to apply, as well having an opportunity for questions and feedback.
MELBOURNE: Friday 15 July 2022
