Advanced Teacher Training week

With Julie Martin in Dubai

7 January 2018 to 13 January 2018

Zoga, Dubai, UAE

Movement Anatomy and Applying it to a Vinyasa Flow Practice

This week will be a perfect continuing education program for any teachers who want to take their skills to the next level in understanding of human anatomical movement and how that applies to a modern, safe yoga practice.

Julie Martin has over 25 years of experience and an international following of students and teachers alike. Her 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.

 

 

What to Expect

 

This week will be an intensive course, 6 hours per day, and include a daily practice of Brahmani Style Vinyasa Flow, Pranayama and Somatic meditation each morning. Each afternoon will be focused on the theory and applications of information.
We will dive into the exploration of anatomy and movement in relation to a yoga practice. It will involve experiential anatomy and movement analysis. Taking an intelligent approach to anatomy based on modern research by experts in the field we will work with movement patterns, natural and primal movements, why injuries in yoga are on the rise and what needs to change to prevent this, how we can functionally move with the body and not against it.

 

Once we have delved into the workings of the body we then start to refine our sequencing techniques and bring newness to the movement patterns we present in class based on the anatomical information. You will learn how to structure movement that makes sense, is easy to teach and allows students to find their own way. And putting this together with finding a new language that gives us greater power to inspire our students through the information we are sharing.

 

If you feel like you don’t understand why you and/or your students are dealing pain or injuries and discomfort from the practice, or you have been repeating “the same old stuff” in your classes too much or you’re uninspired by your sequences then this course will give you everything you need. This is a great intensive to give you a boost in your skills and your confidence.
