Program Description

Are you a yoga teacher or movement instructor looking to take your knowledge and teaching confidence to the next level?

Join global yoga educator Jules Mitchell, MS, CMT, E-RYT 500, for a 5-day intensive that weaves together asana and all the basics of biomechanics. Jules will lead you through the latest in movement research and foundational scientific concepts in an easy-to-understand way that builds body awareness and will immediately impact the way you teach and practice yoga.

As you engage in in-depth discussions, interactive exercises, and practical application of your own movement, you will:

  • Learn how current science can help you refine your cueing, pose choices, and sequencing
  • Differentiate between anatomy and biomechanics, and challenge the conventional script for even the most basic yoga poses
  • Explore different types of stretching, and how they affect tissues, performance, and injury
  • Consider how refined movement can promote positive tissue change and adaptation
  • Play with unique and effective tools such as isometric and resistance stretching.

Soak up Jules’s immense knowledge of yoga and exercise science in a workshop designed to help you bring biomechanical concepts into asana in a real, actionable way.
