Friday 19 May 
MASTERCLASS with Pranayama, 18:00 – 20:30 pm -  40€
Julie will take you on a journey of spirals, waves, pulses, expansion and contraction, breath and
awareness, moving and stillness. We will move through a warm up exploring the body and allowing
it find its own way, then begin layering the depths of strength and length as we work through beautifully
choreographed rounds of sequences.
Julie’s style of Vinyasa integrates using the natural intelligence of the body and breath to find a
lyrical, moving meditation that unveils the true yoga within us. Yoga is a process of unfolding, letting
go of layers and remaining curious to all the possibilities. In these classes we will explore how
our structure really wants to move and enhance our strength and stability without limitations. In the
relationship between movement and stillness we can learn to be powerful without strain and mobile
without injury. We can learn to breathe with grace.
This class with conclude with a half hour of pranayama and a brief meditation.

WORKSHOP, 13:30 – 16:30 pm -  55€
FINDING STRENGTH AND STABILITY THROUGH FOOT AND PELVIS CONNECTION
The power our feet have to create a beautifully stable structure throughout the body is incredible.
Think of an information super highway running from your foot to your pelvis and up through the
spine, constantly adapting, shifting weight, finding balance and strength. This happens inherently
and yet most people spend a good portion of their day wearing shoes that limit or even switch off
the ability for this information to connect freely.
In this workshop we will look at the anatomical function and play with a variety of explorations to
see how releasing the fascia in the foot can create more space in the legs and the pelvis effortlessly
as well as seeing the foot and the big toe as powerhouses of propulsion. From foot massage to
“gorilla walks” we find an ease in movement with strength and grace and be super grateful for our
amazing feet!

Sunday 21 May
MASTERCLASS, 09:30 – 11:30 am -  35€
As well as the usual explorations this class will involve elements of working with opening the front
of the body to prepare us for the afternoon workshop.

WORKSHOP, 13:30 – 17:00 pm - 60€
BACKBENDING – FINDING FREEDOM IN THE FRONT OF THE BODY
Back bending can be one of the most challenging variety of postures in our asana practice. In this
workshop, we will focus on learning how to overcome limitations by freeing up the front of the body,
thus allowing the spine more flexiblity. As we discover what limits us in our back bends, whether it
be shoulders, hips, breath or even just fear, we will learn to move beyond these obstacles to create
free flowing movement in our backbends, finding an ease to move with the body and not against it.
Julie invites you to be open, receptive and discover all the possibilities and eliminate your limitations.
This workshop is suitable for all levels and styles of yoga practitioners, especially those less
confident with back bends.

About The Instructors

Julie Martin, Director of Brahmani Yoga is an internationally recognised teacher of Vinyasa Flow. She has been teaching for over 20 years and running highly respected teacher training programmes for the last 13. Julie infuses 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 question is always “how does it feel to be in this body now?”  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.
