Julie’s love for yoga began in 2003 when she discovered the asana (posture) practice of yoga. Overtime, she realized that yoga had much more to offer than just the physical benefits. As her personal practice grew, Julie wanted to be able to bring yoga to other people. She completed formal teacher training in the Pranakriya tradition with Yoganand Michael Carroll in 2008. Julie’s desire to continue to learn from Yoganand led her to complete advanced certification in 2011. She is also interested in Ayurveda and became a certified Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant in 2016.
Julie teaches a range of classes from very gentle to more vigorous, and always in a manner that allows introspection, true to the Pranakriya tradition. Pranayama and meditation, slow transitions from posture to posture, and adequate time in each posture give her classes a meditative quality. At the same time, Julie’s sense of humor and relaxed attitude create a laid-back environment in which to fully experience yoga.

When Julie isn’t practicing or teaching yoga, she is enjoying every moment of her son’s childhood or working in her other role as a veterinarian.
