Julie started her career in Health & Wellness in 1990 personal training and teaching a variety of group exercise classes. She took her first yoga class in 1998 and something sparked in her. After a year of practice she began teaching. A few more years of practice and studies she knew somehow this was her path. She dove deep into the teachings.
Julie has trained under many of the great yoga masters. Over years of study she continues her training and certifications with Yogarupa Rod Stryker as his lineage honors the ancient teachings of yoga. She is grateful and blessed to also study The Luminous Soul teachings with Manorama.
Julie teaches from the ancient wisdom and weaves these messages into the practice that apply to daily life. She walks solid in her truth and guides students to use their practice to connect with their true Self; to embrace their authenticity and walk this path making their own unique footprints along the way. She is often unapologetically bold in her offerings but keeps it fun - as it is practice, not perfect.
The practice of yoga, the dedication through the dark times as well as the joyous ones, has literally saved Julie’s life. She still walks this earth for a reason, and she believes with all her heart it is to share this beautiful practice and carry the message of these precious teachings.
“We’re all just walking each other home.”
