A 6 session online program for in-depth discussions with 6 CEU’s.
Mondays February 15 – March 22, 2021
12:00pm – 1:00pm Pacific Time
The Book Club is for readers who wish to gain real-time access to the author and gain a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of major themes.
This 6-part webinar will teach you how to:
Use the book as a text in your teacher training program
Explain biomechanics in simple, useful terms
Make sense of confusing cueing
Consider research as a valuable source of information
Jules Mitchell, MS, LMT, ERYT 500 is a regular contributor to yoga teacher training programs worldwide, providing yoga schools with the most current research in biomechanics.
The online Book Club is a 6-week program designed to connect readers of Yoga Biomechanics: Stretching Redefined with the author, as well as with each other. Members of the Book Club will be invited to read one chapter each week, submit questions up to 24 hours prior to the online meeting, and attend a real-time online meeting in webinar-style format. Enrollment is limited to ensure a personalized experience. A copy of the book is not included in the Book Club price and members should attain their own copy prior to the start of the Book Club. Purchase information can be found here.
Attendance at each Book Club meeting is mandatory. This is not a downloadable online course, nor is it a “buy now and watch later” program. The Book Club is a platform for live discussion. One absence will be excused, but after missing a second meeting, you will be removed from the roster. Webinars will be recorded, however, access to the recordings will only be available for a short time after the end of the Book Club. Please only register if the dates and time work for your schedule.
Currently, various time slots are being offered. As Jules’ schedule changes, and in response to interested readers, days of the week and times should vary in the future. Jules’ goal is to make the Book Club membership available to as many people as possible. Please be patient as future Book Clubs become available.
