Podcasts featuring Julie Martin
These podcasts are a highly recommended resource! Mark has interviewed so many amazing people with hours of great listening. I have been interviewd in two sperate sessions - see below.
Yoga in the World
Julie Martin re-joins the show to discuss the benefits of a somatic and embodied approaches to yoga. Culture power and yoga, self-worth and yoga, tango, awareness, modern times and being a yoga “in the world”.
Somatic Yoga with Julie Martin
Julie joins the show from Goa to discuss a somatic approach to yoga beyond making the shapes and blindly following tradition. She touches upon neo-colonialism, culture, travelling yogis, yoga for Indians vs. Europeans, dissociative yoga, unworthiness, social media, entitlement and freedom in yoga.
Julie Martin - The Queen of the Yoga Rebellion
In this pod, Julie Martin, explains where she got it all from. Via dance, she entered the yoga world, and today she´s a highly visible and popular representative of the un-orthodox, inventive yoga which does not fear neither influences from other forms of movement nor new research into the body, for example the fascia - research that might lead to having to throw some of the old stuff overboard. She shuns yoga as an excluding practice where teachers post selfies on Instagram with demanding poses in the sunset. Her aim is to have classes that are alive with young and old, big and small, athletic and less flexible - everybody´s welcome (and I can certify that theses classes are fun too!). She also gives advice on how to find your way as a yoga teacher and explains why today´s assembly line teacher training does not meet the standards.
Rethinking yoga creatively - with Julie Martin
Now more than ever, we need to focus on our well-being, physical and mental, and to me yoga is the union of both. I’ve been taking Julie’s classes online for a couple of months and her creative approach to teaching yoga has led me to invite her on the Creativity for All Podcast.
She talks about how, after twenty-five years, she’s had to break the rules and follow her own path to rethink her yoga practice and teaching creatively and how she sees yoga as an exploration and an opportunity to develop a relationship with our body, without judgement, and to discover sensations through movement.
After listening to this episode, I’m pretty sure you will be tempted to start a yoga practice or refresh an existing one or, at the very least, your take on movement and your own body is likely to change, so enjoy!
