73: Where Do We Go From Here? with Jules Mitchell + Arundhati Baitmangalkar
The Mentor Sessions
It is now September of this unprecedented year, and there is so much that is unknown about our future and our world. When I asked my friends Jules Mitchell and Arundhati Baitmangalkar to join me for this conversation about what happens next, particularly in the yoga world, they both cautioned me that they didn’t really have many answers to my questions. “That’s okay!” I said. “It’s not important to give people sure and concrete answers, those don’t really exist in the best of times anyway. It’s just important to have conversations about what comes next out in public!” So I’m very excited to bring you the third episode in the Where Do We Go From Here? series here on The Mentor Sessions. In this episode you’ll hear Jules, Aru and I get really honest about what these last six months have been like for us, and our best guess about what our work might look like a year from now. In this episode you’ll hear: a honest conversation about the joys and challenges of teaching online how the events of this year might change the yoga world permanently what our work might look like a year from now what makes us feel hopeful about the future some suggestions for yoga teachers and studio owners as we continue to move through this challenging season Arundhati Baitmangalkar (she/her) is an Indian immigrant yoga teacher, studio business owner, podcaster and Bollywood choreographer.

She describes how her studies had an immediate professional impact when she was able to apply her scientific knowledge in her yoga classes. [20.57] Tissue mechanics. She explains how tissue behaves and adapts when force is applied. Teaching the fundamentals of tissue mechanics forms an important part of her yoga teacher training because it makes it easier to navigate conversations about injury.

Jules expresses her amazement at the ability of the human body to withstand stress and cautions against the assumption of fragility and the practice of excessive protective guarding.

How to manage hypermobility in the yoga room with Jules Mitchell
You may have noticed a pendulum swing when it comes to yoga poses that require extreme amounts of flexiblity. Just as we glorified the idea of throwing both legs behind our head in Yoganidrasana, many of us are now worried that we've been doing too far, exploiting our "hypermobility" and potentially causing soft tissue injuries or arthritis down the line. But what exactly is hypermobility? Is it the same thing as being flexible? Can we tell if we or our students have it? Most importantly, what do we do about it?For this important episode, I've invited biomechanics researcher Jules Mitchell back to help clarify. (You can also hear Jules on episode 160, "The Science of Stretching and Strength.")Show notes: http://www.jasonyoga.com/podcast/episode178SHOUT TO OUR SPONSORSAcuity is a scheduling assistant that works 24/7 behind the scenes to fill your calendar and takes hours of work off your plate — so you can keep your zen, and focus on all the other important aspects of your yoga business or side hustle.

The Science of Stretching (and Strength) with Jules Mitchell
For our season two finale episode, we’re talking to Las Vegas-based yoga teacher and author Jules Mitchell. We dive deep into the biomechanics of yoga in this episode and talk about Jules’ new book, which is a comprehensive look at the science of stretching. We can’t cover the whole book in this short format, but I think you’ll find the highlights are fascinating, thought provoking, and relevant to the broader discussions we’re having in the yoga community today.We talk about: * Why it was so important to Jules to define the anatomy terminology in her book (and why Jason tries to do the same thing in his trainings) + Why language is so important in the yoga room!* She explains what compressive load and tensile load means for listeners* Hypermobility, the pros and cons of passive stretching, and her recommendations for students who are really flexible. Plus, Jules shares why she cautions teachers against diagnosing students with hypermobility (what to do instead).* The long-held myth that strong and flexible are opposite concepts * Her thoughts on yoga as a lifelong practice and whether yogis should incorporate other types of movement and exercise into their routinesShow notes: http://www.jasonyoga.com/podcast/episode160 SHOUT-OUT TO OUR SPONSORSSweaty Betty is a woman-owned activewear company based in the U.K. Their clothing is made of great fabrics and are always a phenomenal fit.
