People say Julie is helping #redefineyoga:
“Julie’s yoga instruction starts with an infectious love of the practice that shines out to her students. Every class with Julie is a trip that’s light in spirit, yet asks students to intensify their practice internally. Thanks to her expertise, humor, and attention to detail, I know my time on the mat will be enlightening, rigorous, and seriously fun” – Kevin Wolfe
Julie has evolved her style of teaching yoga as an instructor for two decades with roots in Anusara yoga and vinyasa. Shaktiyoga New York was born out of her commitment to teach the depth of the practice that includes philosophy, mythology, asana, bio-mechanics, meditation, pranayama, and anatomy in public classes as well as longer programs like Teacher Training and Immersions.
Shakti is Sanskrit for creative, manifest power. The practice of yoga is very personal and can serve as a means to explore your connection and relationship to shakti in its physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual forms. Julie’s signature Shaktiyoga Align + Flow classes offer students a place to contact and listen to this core-place, first, and then move and breathe with the awareness of that place more fully.
The Shaktiyoga New York Teacher Training school aims to educate as well as fully prepare new teachers to be leaders in their communities through comprehensive study of philosophy, varied methodology, deep inquiry, regular meditation, and engaging discussion with the full realization that the practice of yoga is more than just asana.
Julie’s goal is to help facilitate every students awakening to their own shakti, creative potential, and to live more fully from this place. Shaktiyoga Align + Flow classes will prompt inquiry, engagement, deep alignment to your creative potential, and expansion of it through every corner of your life.
“Julie is a force of yoga! I never could have imagined the intensity of her teacher training experience and how it would open up my eyes to the infinite possibilities of growth and expression around me both on and off the yoga mat.” – Silvana Nardone
