Restorative Yoga Asana Intensive

with Jules Mitchell MS, CMT, ERYT500

Restorative yoga traditionally targets the nervous system, upregulating the parasympathetic response and downregulating neuromuscular activity. Through the art of masterful prop arrangement you can maximize these intentions, addressing individual circumstances including posture, limited flexibility, hypermobility, injuries, and other musculoskeletal concerns. Learn to read the story each body tells, assess a student’s specific needs based on tissue quality, and cultivate your intuition.

Course includes:

  • Extensive demonstrations

  • Plenty of hands-on practice

  • Discussion and collaboration

  • Backbends and forward bends

  • Sidebends and twists

  • Supine standing poses

Bio: 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: Stretching Redefined, 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.
