Exploration through Yoga Movement, Meditation, Pranayama and Dialogue

30 August to 1 September 2019

Exploration through Yoga Movement, Meditation, Pranayama and Dialogue

Being busy and productive has become the normal mindset in modern life. It even seeps into our yoga practice. We can easily get focused on the doing and achieving and forget why we fell in love with yoga in the first place. The crazy chaos of life can be overwhelming and we need to find the antidote in the practices. How do we return to moments of peace and connection so that we are better equipped for whatever is coming next?

This weekend workshop will be a mix of morning masterclasses exploring movement and sessions that address what takes us out of balance, off centre and into stress mode. We will apply practices that bring us back to "home base" - back into steadiness.

 

What we will do

 

  • Movement/asana practices that bring us back to our earth connection.

  • How stress and daily life affects our nervous system and our endocrine system.

  • Variations of meditation practices to increase our energy and find our grounding.

  • A movement sequence that energises and restores - a 15 minute takeaway practice.

  • Pranayama practices to cultivate mental and emotional stability.

  • Establishing our personal "home base" and finding ways to return with ease.

A bit about Masterclasses

Our yoga practice gives opportunity to let go of unwanted patterns, behaviour, stories and limitations allowing us to cultivate a relationship with our inner self. One that becomes the most important relationship of all. Using awareness of sensation Julie will guide you to explore natural spirals, waves, pulses, expansion and contraction, integrated movement, breath and pause. Listening without judgement to what your body has to say, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Julie encourages students to find their own pace, fluidity and strength in a structure that is only a "suggestion". She no longer asks people to get "into" a pose, but if stillness arises then space is given for you to pause, feel and sense. Moving on only when you are ready, moving with the body not against it.


Julie's style of flow and curiosity, a practice for all those who are tired of showing up to merely make shapes. Join the Intelligent Rebellion and allow yourself to find a practice that feels authentic to you and your own body.

Questions

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.
