Join me for a weekend of exploratory movement. This course is ideal if you are looking to assimilate various approaches to yoga poses and jumpstart your sequencing game. We will combine lecture and practice so you can immediately apply what you learn. You will also receive the course recordings for 14 days after the event.
As yoga becomes more mainstream and exercise science enters the conversation, it is easy to be consumed by the physicality of the postures. When we continue to emphasize mindfulness, we naturally teach with a focus on sensing and feeling. Somatics, or moving within, is at the essence of all yoga postures, whether vigorous or restorative. In this course, Jules Mitchell draws from motor control theory, the stretching research, and current pain science to explore how and why various somatic principles work. You’ll experience examples from variety of somatic education programs and discover how to incorporate “mini lessons” into your yoga sequencing. Dress comfortably and be prepared to roll around on the floor!
