About The Instructors

Emil Wendel, E-RYT 500

Emil was born in Switzerland and has been living in Asia since the mid-seventies, studying Sanskrit and Indian Dharma on the Subcontinent, as well as Chinese Philosophy and Taoism in East Asia.
His long residency of 25 years in India and Nepal has allowed Emil an exceptional insight in to the depth of Indian civilization and its philosophical current.  He is sharing this insight in teacher training courses, retreats and workshops all around the world, serving to develop and deepen the yogic process.
He has been part of the Brahmani faculty since it's inception more than 7 years ago, offering meditation modules, Mantra Vidya, Mudra sequences, Pranayama and philosophy courses.

Julie Martin, E-RYT 500

Julie Martin, Director of Brahmani Yoga is an internationally recognized teacher of Vinyasa Flow. She has been teaching for over 20 years and running highly respected teacher training programmes since 2004.
A former professional 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.  The questions are always: “How does it feel to be in this body now?” and “How can I be in this experience without risking injury?”
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.

“The practice is not in the asana, it is in the awareness.”  Julie Martin


Rhys Beynon, RYT 500:

Rhys has worked as a medical doctor since 2002 and currently works as a consultant in Emergency Medicine with a specialist interest in Children’s Emergency Medicine in a major trauma centre in London.  He is also a certified yoga teacher since 2011 (RYT500).

Rhys is fascinated by the possibilities that arise with the integration of his medical knowledge with his yoga practice.  The structured anatomical and physiological knowledge that he learnt in medical school has been transformed since he has been practicing yoga.  His own playful practice has allowed him to develop a deeper awareness and understanding of the body, which he is passionate to share with others.

He is also fascinated by new research involving the body and its relationship to movement.  His aim during this level 2 teacher training course will be to interweave this knowledge into the programme in an interactive way so that it will feel relevant and practical to you as a yoga teacher.
