Jules Mitchell: A Lifetime of Freedom of Movement, Informed By Science

Delighted to share this great conversation with Jules Mitchell, who brings her fascination with exercise science and biomechanics to the evolving field of modern yoga practice. We discuss the tension between a beginning student (or new teacher) mindset around differing  “correct” models of alignment and technique, and the less clearly defined process of exploring the underlying realities of the body. Jules talks about how the work she shares with people has evolved to include free movement, loading, and encouraging what she calls “reversibility.” We touch on neuroplasticity, self-loving embodiment, and the inseparable nature of body and mind.

As nerdy and technical as these topics sound, Jules is a warm, pragmatic and unpretentious conversationalist —I think you’ll find this a very engaging and illuminating interview!
