Course Objectives

This webinar is for teachers and students who have an insatiable curiosity about stretching, what it does, and how it works, while accepting that conventional stretching wisdom isn’t always accurate.

This webinar will teach you to:

  • Distinguish between the different types of stretching
  • Categorize non-stretching activities as tensional loads
  • Discuss the various thoughts behind limited range of motion
  • Examine the effects of stretching on performance
  • Consider the term overstretching in a variety of contexts
  • Understand the role of muscle spindles in the feeling of tightness

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.

Course Description

This online webinar is available twice per year and is continually revised and updated. The webinar focuses primarily on stretching and Jules’ interpretation of the research, covering nearly 100 slides complete with references when scientific studies are mentioned. The webinar is intended to be live as Jules addresses questions in real time via the webinar Q&A function. The webinar is constantly evolving as Jules continues to research the subject of stretching, strengthening, training, adaptation, injury, rehab, and pain – but as her narrative has become more refined, she has been able to condense the length of the webinar without losing any content. While this is the Science of Stretching 3.0, participation in the earlier iteration is not required. Anyone can register! Includes downloadable/printable PDF handout of entire slideshow and access to the recording for 14 days.
