Empowering Teachers

 

 

 

Welcome to Brahmani Yoga’s Online School

Evolve your yoga practice & teachings

This is a space for the curious teacher who is ready to challenge everything that they know. Gain access videos that have been filmed during my Level 2 Teacher Trainings as well as my public workshops and investigations into movement.  I also offer bespoke mentoring / coaching for yogis looking for personal guidance for their practice, teachings, trainings, studios or schools.

Think outside the box, get off your mat, shake up the old dogmas and find the freedom to unfold into the beauty of a yoga practice that emerges from the inside.

Join the tribe and feel inspired!

Calling All Yoga Teachers

Join the Intelligent Yoga Rebellion, learn to teach an embodied practice, grow and evolve your personal practice and feel empowered and Inspired!

Explore & Grow

The videos here on this website will take you through the process of understanding how to sequence, how to layer sequences. They will invite you to explore an embodied practice as opposed to a shape based practice. You will learn how to integrate new language skills. Learn how to translate anatomical knowledge into your movement practice with an understanding  of current information on fascia and other anatomical structures and how they work within a movement practice.

Evolve

Now is the time to evolve from strict linear shapes to a more evolved, modern and informed practice. We need to ask ourself why are we not allowing our practice to evolve? Yoga has been evolving for thousands of years – why stick to a dogmatic practice now? Often in our initial teacher trainings we are given a list of cues or structures to stick to.  Now that we, as teachers, understand more about the body and human movement we need to replace those cues and find a new language for our teaching. We need to look at why moving differently is important. We need to bring anatomy into the moving body and explore range of motion and find freedom in our movement.

About Julie Martin & Brahmani Yoga

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. Brahmani Yoga invites you to practice with curiosity and individuality. Moving away from a shape based practice to an embodied, felt sense practice.

Now Julie travels around the world inviting students and teachers alike to join the Intelligent Yoga rebellion. She wants you to think outside the box, get off your mat, shake up the old dogmas and find the freedom to unfold into the beauty of a yoga practice that emerges from the inside.

What Others Say

Knowing myself I hesitated to do an online mentorship but I am so pleased I did!

This whole experience was as if Julie Martin was in my home sharing, listening and practising with me. Her generosity and kindness as well as her honesty and accessibility made our skype and FaceTime meetings very special and in between those I had loads of resources to explore and tasks to work on.

Although I am 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 and I have material to continue to dive in to for a long time to come as well as Julie to reach out to should the need arise. Best training I ever did!
