Few myths have caused as many misunderstandings about the body as the widespread belief that “stretching & strengthening are opposites”.

In this 90-minute continuing education workshop for yoga teachers, we thoroughly deconstruct these terms (as well as related terms like “flexibility”, “strength” and “muscle contraction”) to offer a clearer and much more accurate understanding of the relationship between stretching & strengthening.

Jenni uses her signature clear communication style to teach about complex topics such as muscle physiology, stretching science, and movement science in simple and digestible ways. The abundance of information packed into in this workshop has far-reaching implications for how we approach our body and our students’ bodies on the yoga mat.

Yoga Alliance-registered yoga teachers are eligible to receive CE hours from the completion of this workshop.
