Resistance Stretching – Strengthen to Lengthen
Adding more dimension to your movement, rehab, and mobility skillset
with Jules Mitchell
May 1-3, 2020
$595 + GST
Jules Mitchell presents this comprehensive 3-day course that focuses on resistance stretching as both a practice and an assessment tool. Resistance stretching is a practice well utilized across disciplines, including yoga teachers, fitness professionals, as well as massage/manual therapists. Where most stretching techniques utilize passive methods, this approach puts the student/client in the driver’s seat, making for a safe and effective hands on approach to mobility and control through a range of motion. Yoga teachers without much hands on adjustments training will develop skills in compassionate touch while learning about resistance, load, and muscle contraction types. Practitioners with high level experience in hands on approaches will be able to apply the concepts in this course to their current protocols, expanding their treatment toolbox. Beyond the stretching techniques, Jules will troubleshoot mobility issues as they arise, providing you with insight into her talent for assessment and exercise/pose selection. As a result, you get a comprehensive program that includes the biomechanical and neuromechanical theory behind the system, dozens of stretches, mobility drills, dosage guidelines, and problem solving. You’ll also get plenty of hands-on practical training, enabling you to apply these methods immediately after the course.
