Science of Stretching Webinar 3.0
A live course that includes real-time interaction with Jules

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.

The Science of Stretching Webinar offers an introduction to biomechanics and the related vocabulary provide a foundation for a lively discussion on all things stretching. Learn what we know (and don’t know) about how stretching works and what the benefits and drawbacks of flexibility training include. Discuss the properties of biological tissues and how they adapt to repeated mechanical stresses. Consider the effects during asana, adjustments, and popular alignment-based cueing. Evaluate the research and compare it to the hype to ultimately redefine what stretching means and what role it plays in yoga. Jules delivers complex scientific concepts in an easy to understand and applicable way that will immediately impact the way you teach and practice. Includes downloadable/printable PDF handout of entire slideshow and access to the recording for 14 days.
