Feeling stuck in your teaching process? Add new elements and bring new life to your classes without overloading yourself or your students.
Julie Martin has been creating innovative sequences that take students on a layered journey of movement and meditation for many years. Her philosophy behind putting classes together is drawn from several sources. The latest anatomical information to support function, using organic and natural based movements to enhance the asanas, aiming towards range of motion instead of flexibility and taking into consideration the important role that the nervous systems plays.
Julie’s passion is to take from many resources and ensure that what we are teaching is still yoga and enabling teachers to present it with clarity. Finding an embodied approach to movement and stillness, steering away from the athletic or “work-out” mentality and guiding students back towards the inner realm of awareness and experience. The goal is never to perfect a shape but to be present with what is moving through the body, the mind, the emotions and how to harness this awareness and bring it to our everyday lives.
With 25 years of experience, Julie will take you through daily sessions that look at structure and how to use it best. Learning to work with repetition, layering movement and creativity. Also how to bring in the new movement ideas without overwhelming your students.
If you’ve been feeling stuck in your teaching process then this course will help you add new elements and bring new life to your classes without overloading yourself or your students. You will be given tools and a layout on how to create, adapt and refine what you offer in your sequences. Whether you are a new teacher looking for a better skill base, an experienced teacher in need of inspiration or you’ve been trying to add new movement principles to your classes and need confidence, this week is the perfect continuing education for all.
Everyday will also include a full practice with Julie so that you can clearly see the philosophy in action.
Sunday – Thursday 11.30-17.00 - Daily Layout For Sequencing Intensive:
DAY 1: Looking at overall structure and integrating different approaches to that structure so that we unlock potential for creativity.
DAY 2: Layering movement, working with repetition and in “rounds”. How creating repeated sequences gives emphasis to feeling instead of thinking in order to guide students into a movement meditation.
DAY 3: Introducing new movement ideas without confusing yourself or your students. It can be difficult to change up the way you teach to allow for more freedom and creativity, so we take time to look at the building blocks to integrate new information with confidence and clarity.
DAY 4: Introducing new movement ideas PART 2
DAY 5: Enhancing our creativity and how to harness it in order to make sense for our students as we turn it into a structure that becomes clear.

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.
