As a massage therapist, yoga teacher, Reiki master, and certified MELT Method Instructor, Julia has been sharing her passion for health and wellness with others since 2003. An experienced 500-hour certified yoga teacher, she enjoys connecting with students of all ages and abilities in a variety of classes including Sekoia™, Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow, Hatha, Beginner, Yin, Prenatal, Itsy Bitsy Yoga®, Senior & Chair yoga, and Laughter Yoga. Always a curious yogi and bodyworker, some of her specialty trainings include yoga therapeutics, restorative yoga, pranayama (breath discovery), craniosacral therapy, myofascial & neurofascial release, and aromatherapy. It’s beautiful to her how this is all interrelated and dances together. As both a yoga teacher and bodyworker, she brings a little bit of everything she studies and practices into her classes.
An anatomy enthusiast, her classes emphasize finding alignment and mindful movement within exciting and creative vinyasa flows. As a teacher, she strives to create a safe and open space where students are free to develop a respectful relationship with the body, access new strength and space, and make discoveries. Her teaching style reflects a sincere concern for each student. She emphasizes self-love and compassion while also encouraging students to challenge themselves. By connecting more deeply within, she inspires students to take the practice off the mat, inviting yoga, self-care, and wellness to be a part of everyday life.
