5th - 12th May 2018
In Sabina Retreat, Rieti, Italy
ONLY A FEW SPACES LEFT! Join Julie for a beautiful, sweet and soulful week of unfolding, exploring, curiosity, discovery & release. Combining daily practices of Vinyasa Flow Brahmani style, Sacred Dance, Meditation and Creative Writing, we will dive into a journey of self discovery. When we gather as women we find our softness and our power at the same time. We can be held by the sisterhood of support, let go of our personal expectations and just be who we are, as we are, without judgement.
What To Expect
Each day will include an Asana practice, Sacred Dance, Creative Writing and meditation & pranayama.
This week is about allowing an exploration of the layers within yourself through movement, dance, stillness and expression to witness what may unfold creatively.
Julie is an expert at guiding practices that offer freedom in form and allow self expression to arise. Structures often bring a sense of confinement, but here all structures will be fluid, pliable and open to personal interpretation based on where and who we are in the moment. There will space for emotions to arise, be held in a safe space and allowed to release through somatic movement and stillness.
About Sacred Dance
We are constantly communicating with our bodies. Our gestures, glances, movements are telling stories we may not be aware of. When we cultivate our internal dialogue to find expression in movement, in dance, we have access to our stories. We feel them, see them and express them. Through this process we allow ourselves to re-pattern, let go of limiting ideas and grow in our relationship to ourselves and others.
Sacred Dance is a movement exploration without limitations. Guided by Julie through different awareness exercises you will find your freedom in movement and let the dance rise from within.

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 andstillness.
