Julia Carr, a 200-hr RYT and Reiki Master, found yoga in 2004, and advanced her practice in two years of Anusara teacher training in 2014 when she also became a Reiki Master. After a rigorous, therapy - focused training with teachers Sandy Adler and Michele Bulgatz in Eugene, Ore. she felt an awakened Shakti --“the primordial cosmic energy”-- that expressed itself at Ecstatic Dance. Currently, she uses sound healing therapy with Crystal bowls, guides individuals at a private in-home health and wellness business called "Listen Heart," Ecstatic Dance facilitation, and is a mother of a pre-teenager. She is passionate about creating safe community spaces to find ways to heal and connect in a deeper, heart-filled world. She inspires students with nature, ritual, dance, meditation and music. She is registered with Yoga Alliance.
