Julie is a dedicated yoga teacher and student, deeply impassioned by yoga’s innate power of transformation. Teaching for nearly 20 years and often called “a burst of prana”, she teaches classes with clear instruction and intelligent sequencing to help you feel integrated, strong, balanced, and more freely in touch with your spirit. Julie’s classes are a living infusion of varied Tantra lineages brought to light with a mix of deep wonder for yoga, and understanding that the teachings need a practical approach to take root. With a core belief that yoga is a powerful medium for activating spiritual connection, creative vigor, physical health, personal growth, and collective awareness, her aim is to help students redefine what it means to live more mindfully in a challenging yet supremely beautiful world.
Julie’s focus is teaching students to move toward living an essential life of yoga, including and beyond the vital daily practices. Committed to teaching the depth of the practice, she offers higher-learning programs such as Immersions, Shaktiyoga Align + Flow 200 hour Teacher Training, Continuing Education Programs for Teachers, and One-on-One Mentoring for teachers. She guides new and experienced teachers to be observant, knowledgeable, creative, and confident. In addition to weekly classes, workshops, Immersions and Trainings, Julie’s been honored to teach at yoga Festivals from Bali to Nantucket, and continues to lead retreats yearly to Costa Rica.
In addition to yoga asana, Julie is an Authorized Teacher of Neelakantha Meditation as taught in Blue Throat Yoga, a practice of effortless ease and depth. She offers this incredibly simple practice to individuals through personal instruction, practice, and study of the theory that supports the growth of a life long connection to ones deepest self. Julie is also completing the Yoga For All Training with Dianne Bondy and Amber Karnes, and incorporates inclusion, diversity awareness, and accessibility into all classes.
Deeply inspired by yoga mythology, Eastern philosophy, astrology, and all healing arts, Julie’s personal practice has been elevated through long time study with her meditation teacher, renowned scholar Paul Muller-Ortega of Blue Throat Yoga, as well as Sri Vidya traditions with Douglas Brooks.
Endless pranams and gratitude to an incredible bounty of teachers who’ve been a blessing through the years… Jai!
