3-Day Highland Game Immersion Training Camp

This Highland Games Training Camp will be a true 3 day immersion in all things lifting, throwing, and overall health related with John Odden.

Check out John’s bio here: https://www.empoweredstrength.com/john-odden/

John has gone from an average gym guy with no throwing background to a pro-heavyweight, and eventually reinventing himself as a lightweight world record holder and National Champion. More importantly, he has coached many successful Highland Games athletes individually, and taught many clinics over the last 11 years in the US and Canada. Now he is bringing our third annual of its kind in-depth clinic over 3-days in Bend, Oregon.

Days will be broken down into lifting and throwing segments while covering educational topics. These will include all of the “tips of the pros”, from nutrition, recovery, and mobility spread over the 3-day weekend. All implements will be available, including cabers and women’s weight class implements. This training camp is for athletes who are ready to take the next step in their throwing career, to move up a full class, or breakthrough to the top of their class.

This will be a true world class learning experience for all of those who attend with this 3 day event with 20 hours of hands on learning time.

Space is limited to 12 attendees, and early bird sign-ups end on February 1st (save $100).

Primal Flow Yoga

Michelle’s Primal Flow Yoga is a Vinyasa-style with a deeper focus on playfulness and proper technique. Classes begin with breathing and mindfulness, which carry on throughout the sun salutations, standing poses, twists, balancing postures, focused core work, and the deeper final stretches. These all culminate in a beautiful savasana and seated meditation so that we may return to our center and store all the refined energy we have created.

Often she will choose a theme for classes such as the 2nd chakra, or Chinese medicine meridians, for example. Her goal is a light-hearted but heartfelt yoga flow that invites awareness of movement with body and breath. They are feel-good and restorative!

Time: 4:30pm (45-50mins)

When: Every Wednesday, STARTING JAN. 15TH

Price: FREE for members, $5-$10 donation for non-members
