The way we teach modern postural yoga is rapidly evolving. Stay current with continuing education, informed by sports science and biomechanics research, in this two-day intensive designed for teachers to further their craft. Jules blends sharp intuition with scientifically supported concepts to foster deeper insight into the poses and why we teach them.

Topics include:

  • Learning to read bodies
  • Cueing for individual bodies and how to apply in group settings
  • Optimal tensional integrity using tissue quality as a guide
  • Deviating from conventional yoga alignment instructions when appropriate
  • Directional breathing approaches for visible transformations
  • Biomechanical principles for specific adaptations
  • Utilizing co-contractions and isometrics
  • Deliberate prop placement
  • Sequencing skillful group classes

Expect to walk away from this weekend with a proficiency in reading the story that each body tells and the tools and confidence to support them. Space limited!
