Quality Yoga in Goa

Julie Martin

Julie Martin, Director of Brahmani Yoga is an internationally recognized teacher of Vinyasa Flow. She has been teaching for over 20 years and running highly respected yoga teacher training programmes since 2004.

A former professional dancer, Julie imbues her classes with grace and fluidity, and the process of discovery guided by the continual emergence of anatomical information applied to this modern asana practice.  The questions are always: “How does it feel to be in this body now?” and “How can I be in this experience without risking injury?”

Through encouraging play, curiosity and awareness, each class becomes a journey through body and mind, fusing the qualities of traditional yoga with personal discovery and self expression.

Julie’s aim is to guide students towards awareness and inspire presence, to find freedom in movement, and move towards stillness, to our true practice, our true selves.

“The practice is not in the asana, it is in the awareness.”  ~ Julie Martin

Yoga Teacher Training, India & Worldwide

When it comes to yoga teacher training India has always been a popular choice, due to the history of yoga, the culture and the incredible journeys it starts. But with the large number of yoga teacher trainings on offer, choosing the right course for you can be challenging, to say the least.

At Brahmani the philosophy is about ensuring great quality in training. We don’t want students to graduate just being “OK” teachers. We encourage practitioners to excel and dive deeper into their understanding - not only of their yoga practice but what it really means to share this journey with others.

We run Yoga Alliance registered 200, 300 and 500 hour yoga teacher training programmes from level 1 and level 2/advanced.

All of our courses are yoga intensives, staffed by several senior teachers and always have a small group of participants to ensure individual attention.

We hold workshops with only the most experienced practitioners who will guide you through topics including anatomy, philosophy, back-bending, acro-yoga, kirtans/bhajans (Bhakti Yoga), breathing/pranayama, and many others.

Whether you want to supplement your yoga teacher training, gain a better understanding about something that interests you or just hang out and sing, our fun, friendly and informative workshops will empower you with new knowledge and creativity.
