Anatomy vs. Biomechanics (Lecture)
Hella Hamstrings (Workshop)
We do a lot of forward folds in yoga. Some might say too many. In fact, hamstring discomfort is prevalent among teachers and longtime practitioners, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Jules has compiled hamstring tendon research and how it pertains to athletes, such as soccer players, who are also prone to needing help with their hamstrings. She has translated this research into a series of yoga poses to help you build tolerance in order to safely forward fold for years to come. There is never too much of one pose, only insufficient adaptation. Be prepared to be humbled, Hella Hamstrings will turn up the heat! Includes tips for hyper mobile students.
Breathing, Posture, and Position (Lecture)
Breathing Spaces and Asana
The average person takes over 23,000 breaths per day. It’s no wonder breathing habits affect how you move, how you posture, and how you practice yoga. Explore different breathing practices and how attention to space and direction can profoundly impact the work you do on your mat. The practices are designed to facilitate sensing and feeling, while challenging you to identify and progress beyond your predictable asana strategies. Don’t let the title fool you into thinking this will be nap time. Suitable for all levels, breathing is the only pre-requisite. Please bring a journal.
