What to Expect
INFORM AND INSPIRE - Movement Anatomy and Applying it to a Vinyasa Flow Practice
This week will be a perfect continuing education programme for any teachers who want to take their skills to the next level in understanding of human anatomical movement and how that applies to a modern, safe yoga practice.
The practice is always an enquiry, a somatic exploration of sensation, movement and stillness. This week will be an intensive course, 6 hours per day, and include a daily 2 hours practice of Brahmani Style Vinyasa Flow, Pranayama and Somatic meditation.
Practical sessions will focus on the theory and applications of information. We will dive into the exploration of anatomy and movement in relation to a yoga practice. It will involve experiential anatomy and movement analysis. Taking an intelligent approach to anatomy based on modern research by experts in the field we will work with movement patterns, natural and primal movements, why injuries in yoga are on the rise and what needs to change to prevent this, how we can functionally move with the body and not against it.
Once we have delved into the workings of the body we then start to refine our sequencing techniques and bring newness to the movement patterns we present in class based on the anatomical information. You will learn how to structure movement that makes sense, is easy to teach and allows students to find their own way. And putting this together with finding a new language that gives us greater power to inspire our students through the information we are sharing.
If you feel like you’ve you don’t understand why you and/or your students are dealing pain or injuries and discomfort from the practice, or you have been repeating “the same old stuff” in your classes too much or you’re un-inspired by your sequences then this course will give you everything you need.
This is a great intensive to give you a boost in your skills and your confidence.
About Julies 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.

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.
15 years ago Julie set up Brahmani Yoga in Goa, India after teaching in Brighton, UK for over 8 years. The largest motivation for the yoga centre was to create a community that could join together each winter season and practice without judgment, learn to let everything evolve and be totally inclusive to all yogis. What grew out of that is an international reputation especially in training teachers to challenge the “norms” of the yoga world when they no longer work for us.....
Please note: If you do not meet all the requirnments please don't rule yourself out. These are just a guideline. Reach out and ask!
From the very beginning, Brahmani yoga teacher training programmes have gone beyond the industry standards and created courses that make a difference. Yoga practices are in evolution, life is in evolution, and understanding how yoga meets the modern world has been the driving force behind refining and developing the structures and content of each programme.
