Flexibility: Principles, Practices, and Purpose 
"yoga meets science" workshop with 
Jules Mitchell (USA)

APRIL 5. - 7. 2024 

Friday - Sunday 10:00 - 17:00 (lunch break 90 minutes)

for yoga teachers and experienced yoga students


Flexibility is one of the most popular, and sometimes controversial, topics of the last decade. While it is arguably overrated, it is not as dangerous or detrimental as is often claimed.


Moreover, stretching and yoga appear synonymous in the mainstream media and the reaction within the community tends to either glorify or deny the entire notion.


Enter Jules Mitchell, author of Yoga Biomechanics: Stretching Redefined, to help you explore both perspectives while empowering you with education to make informed decisions about why to stretch and when it matters.


This weekend course is designed to provide an in-depth exploration of what stretching is and how to do it effectively. By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  • Distinguish between the 6 different stretching modalities.

  • Incorporate a variety of stretching techniques into yoga sequences.

  • Learn how to increase range of motion safely and effectively.

  • Understand eccentric contractions and the latest research.

  • Master muscle physiology and how load fits into the stretching narrative.

  • Explore connective tissue mechanics in multiple contexts such as pain, injury, and ROM.

  • Question the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of stretching practices.

  • Recognize common stretching myths and misconceptions.

  • Gain the knowledge and skills necessary to confidently talk about how stretching works.

Jules has spent the last decade teaching yoga teachers about the science, biomechanics, and physiology of stretching. Join her for her comprehensive stretching course that will take your education to the next level. Suitable for yoga teachers of all levels, as well as any individual interested in learning more about stretching practices, this course is about stretching your minds as much as your bodies.
