Biomechanics Meets Energetics
The way we teach modern postural yoga is rapidly evolving. Stay current with continuing education informed by sports science and biomechanics research in this all new continuing education course designed for teachers to further develop their craft. Jules blends sharp intuition with scientifically supported concepts to foster deeper insight into the poses and why we teach them.

+ Friday session includes an introduction to biomechanics, how it can inform a safe and sustainable practice, and developing skills in working with individual and unique bodies.

+ Saturday sessions focus on the upper body – upper back, neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, and hands – and emphasizes backbends, twists, and poses that bear weight on the hands.

+ Sunday sessions focus on the lower body – lower back, pelvis, hips, knees, ankles, and feet – and emphasizes forward folds, twists, and standing poses.

Topics include:
Learning to read bodies
Cueing for individual bodies and how to apply in group settings
Optimal tensional integrity using tissue quality as a guide
Deviating from conventional yoga alignment instructions when appropriate
Directional breathing approaches for visible transformations
Biomechanical principles for specific adaptations
Utilizing co-contractions and isometrics
Deliberate prop placement
Sequencing skillful group classes

In this unique asana intensive, you’ll develop proficiency in reading the story that each body tells, build confidence and develop your instinct for identifying who would benefit from which pose variation and why.
