What if the impact of leaders in the field of well being is as much to do with the space they hold and the relationships they develop as it does to do with the techniques they offer?
In this 2-day immersion we will
- Learn to recognise our limitations and allow our vulnerability to be seen, to be humble with what we don’t know and where we struggle. To see the assuming of this vulnerability as a strength and courage.
- Explore how to cultivate more authenticity so our inner experience and outward expression match, even if this is in conflict with the image of how a yoga / well being teacher “should be” and other people's expectations of us.
- To simultaneously hold empathy and accept ourselves and others, to go beyond the morality of good and bad, and to deeply understand the longing behind behaviour.
These qualities create a safe space to drop identities created to protect ourselves and be more of who we really are. Go beyond shame and blame to create a deeper more genuine connection with ourselves and others. Nurturing these qualities are an essential step into a compassionate, respectful, human transformation.
Step away from blindly following the immaculate teacher and step into humble learning, companionships and communities of true belonging.Register
What to Expect
This weekend workshop in London at Yogarise is designed for yoga and movement teachers and facilitators, teacher trainers, studio owners and managers, and anyone working in the wellbeing industry who feels called to explore these qualities. How do we cultivate it in ourselves and bring their power to our community?
We will use practices of embodiment, listening, role plays and journaling that support us to discover and go beyond the fear, expectations and “should’s” that limit our capacity to be vulnerable, authentic and empathetic.
Through a series of conversations with other yoga teachers and studio owners we identified three qualities that have deeply touched and supported our own development

"Julie's generosity and kindness as well as her honesty and accessibility made our video meetings very special.. Although I'm technically "finished" I am truly just beginning my journey into becoming a more embodied yoga practitioner and teacher with a new language at my disposal."
Noemi - completed the mentoring program with Julie Martin
"I love Julie's ability to guide you deeply, deep inside. With such simplicity and such love that you just let yourself go. And the energy beyond the skin gets accessible... Oh, how grateful I am for that. It's such a precious reminder, as well as being a feeling words lack describing. Well, to sum it up, I loved it and it really helped in this process of coming home."
