We are thrilled to announce we have Jules Mitchell joining us in Reading in 2020. We have been watching Jules for a while on social media and loved how she blends well researched bio mechanic principles and yoga together.

This is Jules first and only trip to the UK at the moment so we expect it to sell out pretty quickly. This course is for Teachers and experienced students with a geeky side ;-).
