My initial training was in Anusara yoga (2010). More recently, I have fallen in love with Ashtanga and my daily practice is the centerpiece of my life. I have been lucky enough to have studied with world-renound teachers, such as Dena Kingsberg and Richard Freeman who have given me a rich sense of the depth of yoga.

Besides teaching yoga, I am a certified Rolfer and Rolf movement practitioner since 2006. Embodiment plays a big part in my life, my practice and in my personal research into how to be more fully present, joyful and alive.

As a yoga teacher, my classes are informed by my experience as a bodyworker as well as by my personal practice. I teach mostly mix level in which I focus on the mechanics of movement and how to build poses safely and progressively.

Simply the best

A beautifully centred and inspiring person, Julia is absolutely the very best teacher to take you on the journey of discovering yoga. She has a lovely voice, a deep and lovely laugh and she teaches breathing brilliantly. Thank you Julia for a truly wonderful introduction to yoga.

Cannot recommend enough!

Julia is a fantastic teacher, with a warm, friendly approach to yoga and was able to cater to all levels of yogi at Rustic Retreats in Totana.

The highlights for me were learning about pranayamic breathing, meditation and chanting with relation to the 7 different chakras.

But most importantly Julia is a yoga teacher who you can have a real laugh with. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering taking one of her lessons.

Yoga retreat with Julia

I have just spent a week in Rustic retreats with Julia as a teacher. I feel reborn and I'm all into the yoga vibe thanks to Julia. She is a very experienced teacher and she knows a lot of the human body. She takes into account the flaws of your body and learns you how to work with it.
I will defenitely do another retreat with her and when in Barcelona I'll go and follow one of her classes. And above all her experience she is a very friendly and genuine person. Thanks Julia!

A wonderful yoga practice with the loveliest of teachers!

I have recently been fortunate enough to spend a week at Rustic Retreats in Spain with Julia as my instructor. I have had the most wonderful time developing my yoga practice in such a positive and welcoming environment and have come away feeling much more calm and refreshed, having learnt a variety of different yoga techniques, along with an introduction to meditation, chanting and pranayama breathing.


Julia is extremely warm, positive and friendly in her manner when delivering each yoga practice and instantly makes you feel at ease. Her classes cater for a wide range of abilities, from complete beginners to advanced, and allow for everyone in the class to work at their own level. Julia is extremely knowledgable about the anatomical aspects of yoga and really focused on helping everyone to get into each posture correctly and at the end of the week I could really feel the benefit of her guidance and have continued to practice at home what she has taught me.

I cannot recommend highly enough having Julia as a yoga instructor and would love to return to Rustic Retreats for her classes next year!

High quality Yoga with a majestic smile

Having spent a week with Julia at Rustic Retreats Yoga in Totana Spain I have returned home to Bonny Scotland with sound knowledge of Ashtanga Yoga that I am able to practice with confidence.
On meeting Julia she took the time to speak to our group individually I explained that I have little knowledge and practice of Ashtanga. Julia spoke in a way I could understand showing compassion taking note of any injuries or aches pains in joints etc.


Each class with Julia was quite unique to begin with meditation the class will flow ensuring that every muscle and joint is ready for the master pose. Julia has a very gentle but direct delivery and will make corrections so that we practice safely and get he most out of each session.
I experienced great variety and was able to challenge my fears achieving positions I never thought I could. Julia also took time to sit and explain anatomy and welcomes her students to take notes where a detailed description is given.
To add I found that Julia has a wide range of knowledge on many subjects where I learned so much of the history and techniques of yoga and meditation and a passion to share this with others.
I look forward to meeting with Julia in the near future as I plan to travel to her class where any expense would be irrelevant, I'm sure it would be money well spent as you cannot put a price on quality.

Fabulous yoga teacher

Having spent a week with Julia at Rustic retreats, I can honestly say she is absolutely fabulous. Her lessons are well structured, clear with plenty of support when needed. Her constant smile, beams confidence, encouragement and the pure love she has for teaching. An amazing lady, with so much energy and enthusiasm for passing on the knowledge she has.
Next year I will be looking out for her at rustic retreats and would love to spend another week with her.

yoga retreat in relaxed atmosphere

the yoge retreat ( 3 days) near Barcelona with Julia was pure fun
and a good come back to yoga for me. The yoga classes in the morning where not too hard and not too relaxed, the level was perfect for me as a re- beginner.
