Atelier avancé avec Jules Mitchell

Jules Mitchell MS, CMT, ERYT500 is a Las Vegas 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: Stretching Redefined, is now available through Handspring Publishing. 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.

Foot Fundamentals and Ankle Articulations

Stand up to your standing poses with the knowledge they deserve, knowledge based in biomechanics and traditional yoga.  In this 3-hour workshop with Jules Mitchell, we will explore standing postures from the ground up, increasing awareness of foot and ankle mobility and learning how gait patterns might be expressed in popular poses like Warrior 1, Triangle, and Tree. Get excited and challenged with Jules’ fun, functional, skill-based approach to teaching and learning. Expect to leave this workshop standing tall and proud about your standing postures.  Please bring a journal.  Notes and questions are encouraged.

Shoulder Potential

The highly mobile shoulder complex can bear the weight of the body in yoga asana but does not always perform to its full potential. Instead, we often see limited range of motion, repetitive use injuries, and pain. In this 3-hour workshop, we’ll simplify all the complex anatomy you may have studied in the past and equip you with approaches to get stronger, move better, and feel better. You will learn upper extremity biomechanics, learn to assess quality of movement, and incorporate practices to improve shoulder function, promote change and develop mobility/stability. Apply these insights to a variety of asana including the everyday downdog. You may experience a departure from conventional cueing. Therefore, curious minds are encouraged. All shoulders are welcome – healthy or injured, strong or weak, hypermobile or not mobile enough. Please bring a journal.

Hip Dynamics

Dynamics [dahy-nam-iks] noun

  1. The branch of mechanics that deals with the motion and equilibrium of systems under the action of forces, usually from outside the system
  2. The motivating or driving forces, physical or moral, in any field
  3. The pattern or history of growth, change, and development in any field

While the hip joint has the capacity to be a highly mobile joint, it also has the capacity to be quite strong. And contrary to conventional thought, flexibility and strength can be achieved together. Discuss why weakness may sometimes manifest as tightness, resist the urge to stretch yourself into common yoga postures, and discover the potential for utilizing isometrics in asana. Additionally, incorporate principles of co-contraction to help identify individual alignment variations. You’ll leave feeling strong and capable. Please bring a journal.

This is Spinal Map

Navigate the architecture of the spine in this brief lecture followed by movement and practice.  Explore how the spinal curves evolved in response to gravity and how our limbs can leverage forces on the spine. Enhance your spinal mobility through phases of rest and repetition while gently and effectively building up to more challenging yoga poses. The workshop includes approaches to spinal articulations that consider current research on spinal biomechanics while addressing common misconceptions about back pain and spinal health. Please bring a journal.
