with Julie Matin at Aloha Yoga in Aarau
Using Julie’s unique form of asana and movement, somatic meditation, breath work and awareness exercises the process of “doing” the practice will transform to the state being, fully present with the sense of aliveness we are looking for.
Through understanding the body and its need to move research has shown that working muscles and body parts in isolation isn’t really a smart system for a structure that is based on tensegrity. From the embryo we know that everything evolves as a whole unit and that once we begin to honour that in our movement we find a freedom and strength that utilises the whole. Julie often refers to this as “universal core”. When we apply these principles to our asana practice the discovery unveils that “effortless effort” we are looking for.
Using Julie’s unique form of asana and movement, somatic meditation, breath work and awareness exercises the process of “doing” the practice will transform to the state being, fully present with the sense of aliveness we are looking for. Instead of investigated static poses, range of motion, waving and spiraling, expanding and contracting is the aim of our exploration. This session will be full of curiosity and enquiry, pause and presence, stillness and movement. All practitioners welcome. The master class will be in english.
About Your Teacher
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.
