In this episode, Janet and Nikki talk with Jules Mitchell, yoga teacher, manual therapist and educator, about how to apply biomechanics to yoga and movement.

They cover:

  • How to define biomechanics
  • The benefits of cuing less and exploring more in your yoga and movement practice
  • Why it's not always bad to break alignment "rules"
  • The role of load in yoga and movement
  • A brief synopsis on the science of stretching and how it relates to yoga and flexibility

 

Jules Mitchell MS, CMT, RYT

Jules is a Los Angeles based yoga educator. She combines the tradition of yoga with her background in biomechanics to help people move better and achieve individually defined physical success. Her approach to asana is multi-modal and skill based, balancing the somatic (moving from within) aspects of yoga with exercise science.

Jules writes on yoga biomechanics and references the exercise science literature on topics (such as stretching) where the yoga research is lacking. She is a regular contributor to yoga teacher training programs worldwide, providing yoga schools with the most current research in biomechanics, even when it invokes a discerning analysis of tradition.

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. As adjunct faculty at Arizona State University, she serves as the yoga consultant on research studies to quantify the effects of yoga therapy on special populations.

Jules is currently writing her book, Yoga Biomechanics: Redefining Stretching, which is expected to become available in 2017 through Handspring Publishing. You can find her leading workshops at your favorite local studio or check out her classes online.
