About Jules Mitchell

Jules Mitchell MS, CMT, RYT is a Los Angeles based yoga educator. She combines the tradition of yoga with her background in biomechanics to help people move better and achieve individually defined physical success. Her approach to asana is multi-modal and skill based, balancing the somatic (moving from within) aspects of yoga with exercise science. Jules writes on yoga biomechanics and references the exercise science literature on topics (such as stretching) where the yoga research is lacking. Her upcoming book, Yoga Biomechanics: Redefining Stretching, is scheduled for completion in 2017.  

She is a regular contributor to yoga teacher training programs worldwide, providing yoga schools with the most current research in biomechanics, even when it invokes a discerning analysis of tradition. Her most influential teachers include Leeann Carey (Yapana Yoga), Gil Hedley (Integral Anatomy), John Casey (yoga philosophy and Sanskrit), and the many dedicated scientists who collect, analyze, and publish data so we may continue to ask more questions. 

As adjunct faculty at Arizona State University, she serves as the yoga consultant on research studies to quantify the effects of yoga on special populations.
