Julie began her yoga practice in 2003 in Boston, Massachusetts, in the United States. She studied at the Baron Baptiste Power Yoga Studios where she practiced Power Vinyasa Yoga, a dynamic flow, which synchronizes breathing and movement. Julie also apprenticed as a teacher’s assistant at Prana Power Yoga in Boston where she learnt how to guide, nurture and help students deepen their practice. It was here that she began to appreciate and understand the connection and energy between the student and the teacher.
Julie trained as a teacher in Bali, Indonesia at Shakti Spirit Yoga with Rachel Hull. Along with a strong Ayurvedic component, the course taught a much gentler form of Vinyasa Flow Yoga, focusing on safety and touching upon yoga as a form of physical therapy.
Julie is a Yoga Alliance Certified teacher. Today, Julie incorporates all of her past experiences into her teaching style. She teaches Hatha Yoga, Power Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Yoga Nidra. She teaches students at all levels including those who have never practiced yoga before. She hopes that students will walk away from her classes with a sense of peace, joy and positivity.
