About Shaktiyoga New York
Julie Dohrman has evolved her own method and style of teaching yoga as an instructor for 20 years, with roots in Anusara and Vinyasa. A true teacher of teachers, Julie focuses on the depth of knowledge that only comes from a fully saturated experience in all facets of yoga – invigorated asana practice, pranayama, chanting, meditation, community building, and svadyaya; study of the philosophical content and higher meaning that yoga practices bring to life. Julie’s training will help deepen what students already know and set the foundation for teaching yoga with expanded knowledge and exceptional skills.
Here’s what recent graduates of Julie’s Teacher Training have to say about Shaktiyoga New York 200 hour program:
“I could not recommend Shaktiyoga Align + Flow Teacher Training enough. Julie seamlessly guided all the trainees through the material and tools of teaching over the course of our training. Her immense knowledge and passion for the teachings and philosophy of yoga is inspiring for everyone. I definitely left the 200 hr training feeling prepared to teach and armed with the tools to continue my study of yoga.” – Kaitlin Paul
“Julie is simply a delightful teacher who has truly absorbed yoga teachings into her life. She magically transforms lessons learned from New York City grit into ancient truths passed down by generations of yogis with depth, love and humor. Julie teaches students from her vast knowledge of alignment technique, teaching strategies, sequencing, adjustments, mythology, anatomy, and philosophy but also pushes her students to develop their own teaching personalities and styles. I started teaching one week after Julie’s program ended and my appreciation for her grit, humor and knowledge continues to grow with every class.” – Cynthia Conti-Cook
“Julie inspires her students to ask questions and come up with our own answers, so we can inspire our students with our own experiences. She has so much knowledge about anatomy, therapeutics, and philosophy, and she brought in guest speakers to talk about specialized topics so that we would get the best information right from the experts. I started this training with no goal in mind, but I finished it with a burning desire to share what I learned with others – thank you Julie!” – Kathleen Richards
