  • Holy Hips & Hamstrings120 minutes ~ Address the areas of the body pertaining to the ROOT (“I am”) and the SACRAL (“I feel”) energy centers (chakras). Intelligently and therapeutically release some of the biggest muscle groups and the largest joints of the body and learn how to optimally forward fold to support the legs, pelvis and spine.

Cultivate trust in your own body awareness and strength, ignite the core (“I do”), find mental focus and suspend your body in space. Activate the body’s highest energy centers (“I see” & “I understand”), move away from fear and learn to fly with grace.

BARRE TEACHER TRAINING

Coming soon to a city near you… Beginning Ballet Sculpt ~ Barre Fitness Teacher Training! (20 Hours) Do you love barre workouts? Dancing? Yoga? Strength training? Fitness? Music that makes you want to move?! Then this program is for you! Learn how to, firstly, embody the classical ballet technique inherent within this type of exercise. Secondly, how to teach a safe, authentic and fun barre class, staying true to form yet with an understanding of when and how to adapt the movement for your students. The majority of the training focuses on ballet technique, practice and pedagogy, but also addresses Yoga, primarily as a warm-up and cool-down approach, upper body strengthening, use of weights, cardio (rhythm), musicality, and creative & sensible sequencing/choreography. The program also lightly explores dance history and effective qualities of a great barre teacher as they relate to presence, language, voice, demonstration, assists, musical choice, maintaing the beat, energy and flow of a class, etc. The weekend format of the training allows for convenient participation and plenty of time to really engage and integrate the material. Once the beginning program is complete, students are invited to continue training with Kenna in the intermediate program and beyond! Contact kennacooper@gmail.com with inquiries, or to host this training at your dance/yoga/fitness/movement space. Must have access to barres; variety of small weights, resistance bands and balls preferable, but not necessary.
