How to Select Training to Further Your Yoga Practice

Do you get paralysis by analysis when it comes to choosing your next workshop series or teacher training program? There’s soooo much to choose from! Let me help you do you by critically evaluating course content while identifying your unique goals and interests. You’ll also discover where your personal bias lies so you can expand your education to balance the mystical with the physical and theory with application. Be prepared to laugh about and love on this crazy practice we know as yoga.

Jules Mitchell MS, CMT, ERYT500 is a San Francisco based yoga teacher, educator, and massage therapist. Her unique approach blends the tradition of yoga with her extensive study in biomechanics to help teachers develop their craft and empower them with education. Jules’s methods intend to achieve ease in movement through deliberate effort, thus her teachings integrate numerous modalities, balancing the somatic aspects of yoga with the most current exercise science. Bringing the most useful and applicable pieces of that science into the yoga community is her passion. She regularly contributes to teacher training programs and leads workshops and courses worldwide. Her book, Yoga Biomechanics: Redefining Stretching, is due to release in 2018.

As adjunct faculty at ASU, she serves as a yoga consultant on various research studies measuring the effects of yoga therapy on special populations. Her most influential teachers include Leeann Carey (Yapana Yoga), Gil Hedley (Integral Anatomy), John Casey (yoga philosophy and Sanskrit), and the many dedicated scientists who collect, analyze and publish data so we may continue to ask more questions, even when it invokes a discerning analysis of tradition.

You can find Jules leading workshops at your favorite local studio or study along with her at home by downloading one of her educational online courses. She also has over 100 premium and free online practices for you to enjoy.
