Empowered to Move: Introduction to Kettlebells
What you'll learn
We will explore traditional kettlebell moves such as the swing, clean, snatch, as well as other ways to incorporate this tool for a full body workout. This training is appropriate for those who are brand new to kettlebell sport, as well as individuals looking to refine technique, and broaden their understanding of how to perform movements. Each class will start with a full body warm-up. We will then introduce a kettlebell movement and refine technique. To offset the finicky, but necessary technical content for kettlebells, we will end each class with a joyful expression of movement and strength in the form of a workout or game. Expect to learn lots of technique, build overall strength & have fun working up a sweat!

At the age of 16 I was a self taught fitness & wellness connoisseur. After skipping out on 9th grade gym class I opted for a 10th grade fitness class, where I experienced my first taste of resistance training. I rushed to the closest gym for a membership and the rest was history. Although my formal education brought me a degree in Chemical Engineering, my personal obsession with health, fitness & all things wellness brought me down a different path. I currently am the co-owner and operator of Canopy Wellness, a local movement studio and Bowen Therapy clinic, where we use knowledge in pain, trauma and movement to helps others effectively overcome chronic pain. Over 2 years ago, I left a 9-5 engineering job to build a life fully aligned with purpose, passion and service. 2017 - Part Time Fitness Instructor at 'On Edge Fitness' teaching bootcamp & weekend warrior classes 2017 - Started with Bowen College 2018 - Part Time Personal Trainer & Nutrition Consultant, working with clients 1-on-1 2019 - Full Time Coach & Personal Trainer at 'We Are Fitness' teaching functional fitness style group classes 2019 - Completed Reiki Level 1&2 with a focus on meditation 2020 - Opened Canopy Wellness with my business partner Mackenzie 2020 - Became a Certified Bowen Health Therapist 2021 - Online Movement & Stillness Educator helping others overcome chronic pain
