About The Instructors

Julie Martin wants you to think outside the box, get off your mat, shake up the old dogmas and find freedom to unfold into the beauty of a yoga practice that emerges from the inside.  With over 25 years of experience and an international following of students and teachers alike, Julie’s greatest aim is to inspire.  Her particular passion for human movement means continual investigation of new anatomical approaches, working with natural movement, range of motion, integrated stability and letting go of some of the old asana myths in order to move with the body and not against it.  The practice is always an enquiry, a somatic exploration of sensation, movement and stillness.  

15 years ago Julie set up Brahmani Yoga in Goa, India after teaching in Brighton, UK  for over 8 years.  The largest motivation for the yoga centre was to create a community that could join together each winter season and practice without judgement, learn to let everything evolve and be totally inclusive to all yogis.  What grew out of that is an international reputation especially in training teachers to challenge the “norms” of the yoga world when they no longer work for us.  Julie’s work as a teacher trainer leaves students inspired and empowered.   

She encourages people to find their own pace, fluidity and strength in a structure that is only a "suggestion". No longer asking people to get "into" a pose, but if stillness arises in a moment then space is given to pause, feel and sense.

“Coming from a dance background and starting an asana practice to save my knees (which it did) I was initially so thankful for the practice.  But as I moved over into the deeper world of yoga and teaching it (25 years ago) I was soon riddled with injuries. I had to rethink how this method that had initially "saved" my body was now the source of pain and injury and why everyone in the midst of it was so intent on a "right way" to do the practice. So I stepped away from the strict methodology (which lost me students in some cases) and worked on combining information from modern anatomy and fascia research, including some of my dance knowledge, with natural movement and letting people find their own alignment instead of forcing ideas of what anything should look like. For me it's about allowing students to find a somatic practice that nurtures and heals the body and mind.”

Your yoga practice should invite you into relationship with your self, your body, your mind and emotions.  This is not Instagram yoga or circus skills class.  This is moving through layers, feeling, experiencing and observing process, moving towards stillness, moving towards self.  

The practice is not in the asana, it is in the awareness - Julie Martin

 

Additional Notes

Refund And Cancellation Policy
In extenuating circumstances, such as bereavement or serious illness, the course can be deferred to a later date, subject to availability and deferral fee. NO REFUNDS, CREDITS OR TRANSFERS ARE AVAILABLE ON CANCELLATION PRIOR TO, DURING OR AFTER THE START DATE OF ANY TEACHER TRAININGS.

Brahmani Yoga has chosen to no longer be associated with Yoga Alliance. We feel their standards are below what we consider to be appropriate in the world of teaching yoga and cannot abide by their lack of accountability and the fees they charge for so little offered.  Yoga Alliance does not "certify" anyone.  Our school certifies each student who has completed one of our training courses.  Yoga Alliance only provides a registry which you can pay to be listed on. You can still obtain insurance in any country without being YA registered.  Brahmani has always gone above and beyond the basic requirements that YA has set out and we now feel it is no longer something we can stand by, and continue to financially contribute to.  If your employer or similar would like a special confirmation from Brahmani personally with an explanation of how our courses exceed what YA request then I am more than happy to comply.
