Julie Martin teaches yogis around the world how to break free from linear, injurious yoga to embrace a practice that is based on how it feels, not what it looks like. She has a reputation for challenging asana myths that hurt and exclude people. She empowers students and teachers alike to own their practice, tap into their curiosity, and trust their own experience.
Raised as a Vedantist, Julie grew up immersed in the philosophy of yoga. As a young adult, she turned to the asana practice to heal from an injury. That was 25 years ago. When yoga began to injure her, she did her research and integrated insights about anatomy, natural movement, range of motion, and integrated stability into her practice and teaching. The result is unorthodox, inventive yoga that moves with the body, not against it.
