Special Class II & Fluid Core Workshop
Julie Martin, Director of Brahmani Yoga and internationally recognised teacher of Vinyasa Flow will be teaching four classes (Weekend Sessions I & II) at yogamoves on the 2nd and 3rd of April 2016. Students have the possibility to choose any class (or classes) within these two days or to get the full experience and be part of all four classes on Saturday and Sunday. The classes will be taught in English.
Special Class II, Sunday 3rd of April, 9.00-12.00h
Exploring different themes Julie will take you on a journey of spirals, waves, pulses, expansion and contraction, breath and awareness, moving and stillness. We will move through a juicy warm up allowing the body to find its own way and then begin layering the depths of strength and length as we work through beautifully choreographed rounds of sequences.
Julie's style of Vinyasa integrates using natural intelligence in the body and breath to find a lyrical, moving meditation that unveils the true yoga within us. Yoga is a process of unfolding, letting go of layers and remaining curious to all the possibilities. In these classes we will explore how our structure really wants to move and how to enhance our strength and stability without limitations. In the relationship between movement and stillness we can learn to be powerful without strain and mobile without injury. We can learn to breathe with grace. This 3 hour Special Class also includes pranayama and guided meditation.
Fluid Core Workshop, Sunday 3rd of April, 14.00-17.00h
Understanding “Core” has been a tricky subject over the last 5 - 10 years in the yoga world. It is often, incorrectly, thought of as our abdominal muscles. However, core and stability are gained by working with all of the muscles needed for any particular action, which may include abdominals but in other ranges of motion is going to include a variety of other muscle groups. During this workshop we will investigate how we are engaging in our movement and find the most efficient way to achieve our goals with our practice. We will play with lots of different techniques in order to discover our true strength, without tension and stability without being rigid. Finding balance and natural movement with less effort and more fluidity.

Biography Julie Martin
Julie Martin, Director of Brahmani Yoga is an internationally recognised teacher of Vinyasa Flow. She has been teaching for over 20 years and running highly respected teacher training programmes since 2004.
A former dancer, Julie imbues her classes with grace and fluidity, and the process of discovery guided by the continual emergence of anatomical information applied to this modern asana practice. Passionate about remaining true to the body and connection to a deeper experience, the questions are always: “How does it feel to be in this body now?” and “Is my practice still serving me?”
Through encouraging play, curiosity and awareness, each class becomes a journey through body and mind, fusing the qualities of traditional yoga with personal discovery and self expression.
Julie’s aim is to guide students towards awareness and inspire presence, to find freedom in movement, and move towards stillness, to our true practice, our true selves.
