Hip Dynamics, Saturday Nov 17, 2018 2018 10:00-13:00
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.

Spinal Map: Saturday Nov 17, 2018 2018 14:00-17:00

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.


Shoulder Potential: Sunday Nov 18, 2018 2018 10:00-13:00

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.

Core Encore: Sunday Nov 18, 2018 14:00-17:00

Explore the core in this fun and educational workshop that develops awareness and control through to the center. Redefine the core to include structures beyond only muscles to explore the positional and functional relationships of your ribs, spine and pelvis while you move, break movement habits, and develop a keen insight into how to continue to evolve your yoga practice. Through Jules' unique cueing, you learn stability without rigidity to support and improve breathing mechanics. This workshop begins with a one hour lecture on biomechanics, anatomy, and current research on core stability/mobility - then follows with a 2-hour asana class to apply and experience those concepts.



Jules Mitchell MS, CMT, ERYT500 is a San Francisco based yoga teacher, educator and massage therapist. Her unique approach incorporates her extensive study in biomechanics with the modern application of yoga asana to help teachers develop their craft and empower them with education. Jules's methods intend to achieve ease in movement through deliberate loading, thus her teachings integrate numerous modalities, balancing the somatic aspects of yoga with the most current exercise science. She leads workshops and continuing education courses worldwide, providing yoga schools with the most current research in biomechanics.  Jules is currently writing her book, Yoga Biomechanics: Redefining Stretching, which is expected to become available in 2018 through Handspring Publishing.  She is also adjunct faculty at Arizona State University where she serves as the yoga consultant on various research studies.  If she's not teaching workshops at your favorite local studio any time soon, you can access a variety of her programs online.  Learn more about Jules Mitchell.
