Julie Diana Shore teaches yoga to share what the practice brought into her own life. A California native, she has called Providence, RI home since 2009, moving there after completing her BA at Bard College. She received her teaching certification from Eyes of the World Yoga Center and continues to deepen her studies as she builds her teaching practice. Her classes translate a technical knowledge of vinyasa asana practice, with underpinnings of yogic philosophy which point to developing mindfulness and compassionate awareness. In addition to her work in traditional yoga studios, Julie works for Rhode Island based nonprofit Resilient Kids. She teaches from her direct experience of yoga as an inclusive, energizing and empowering practice.
