Students are saying Julie is redefining yoga:
“Julie – I love your classes and I really respect your teaching. Thank you for taking an interest in your students and for being so down to earth. I really trust you as a teacher. You make me feel grounded, and more importantly, that I can improve.” – Avery Miller, Brooklyn
“Julie is simply a delightful teacher who has truly absorbed yoga teachings into her life. She magically transforms lessons learned from New York grit into ancient truths, passed down by generations of yogis with depth, love and humor.” – Cynthia Conti-Cook, NYC

Basics: As it sounds, a Basics class with Julie teaches the fundamentals that allow you to begin and sustain a regular practice. You need not be already experienced, athletic, flexible, or even entirely injury free. You’ll learn foundations and forms of poses, breathing technique, simple transitions, use of props for support and strength, and the basic pace of a yoga class. Good for anyone returning to practice after time away, brand new beginners, or anyone seeking a slower paced practice.
Open Align: Good for all levels of student, beginner to Intermediate. Class blends alignment technique into a progressive and dynamic sequence, with optional intermediate variations offered for the more experienced student. Steady pacing makes it accessible for beginners to yoga. Some demonstrations and partner work.
Vinyasa Flow 2: For the more experienced student, this class blends more dynamic flowing sequences and technique into a more upbeat rhythm. Level 2 is understood to be proficient at maintaining steady breath during sequences that include more challenging poses with refined technique. Expect to work toward arm balances, deeper back bends, and inversions. Not recommended for beginners to yoga.
Advanced Practice: A powerful and deep group practice to help students embrace and build self sufficiency. Advanced Practice explores the Level 2/3 poses, including timings and partner work to help strengthen understanding of action in a very playful yet serious communal atmosphere. Teachers of any method and seasoned students with knowledge of bio-mechanics of asana are all welcome, with freedom to fuel intensity and modify. Highly recommended that students have no serious current injuries, and are able to practice handstand at the wall and / or urdhva dhanurasana (“full wheel”) unassisted.
