Interview with Julie Martin

When I think of Julie, it’s her voice that I hear…it is so clear not only in what she is communicating, but her speech itself is so succinct, her voice rich. Her voice is almost a yoga in itself, it only adds to the clarity of what she is communicating, what she wants to say. Sounds corny I’m sure, but truly communication is a gift for Julie and she has been given such a powerful tool with which to share it.... CONTINUE READING CLICK LINK

Here, I’ve put together my top picks for training programs and schools. I must emphasise that choosing the right program for you should be both via research and also intuition. Always look into the teaching faculty and their own background. The most ‘famous’ schools are not always...

Den lilla delstaten Goa är i princip en enda lång sträcka med stränder. Fast att de nästan sitter ihop varierar de i utseende, liksom i atmosfär. Vi guidar från bildsköna Palolem och Patnem i söder till hippe-Arambol längst upp i norr.

Stan Getz ”O Grande Amor” flödar skönt ur högtalarna, den brasilianska flaggan vajar i vinden, de höga palmerna likaså och en espressomaskin brummar i bakgrunden. Det är endast de förbilunkande korna som avslöjar att vi är på en strand i Indien...

Ask her where home is though and she says Hawaii, here she and her partner...

Yoga In Asia

My path to yoga really came in two parts. Interestingly enough the first part started with meditation at a very young age. I was raised by my unconventional parents in an Advaita Vedanta household. This entailed going to a "church" that was essentially Hindu. I grew up with my father meditating 2 times a day for an hour at a time which he encouraged in both my sister and I. It also meant attending Puja's, Kirtans, Bhajans and Philosophy lectures on a regular basis.

When you pick up and move 11,165 km from home you feel a little lost for a while. It’s kind of like starting school, a new job, or walking into a yoga studio for the first time, only amplified about 100 times.
