Julie has an undeniable devotion to the practice of yoga. Initially taking to her mat to relieve stress, it was not long before the daily practice transitioned from simple exercise to a passion for the movement. Julie’s personal practice is rooted in the precision and strength of the Ashtanga lineage, and she also regularly finds time for heated and restorative classes.
Julie obtained a 200-hour certification from a Yoga Alliance-approved teacher training while living in Nashville, Tennessee and soon thereafter, moved to Phoenix, where she quickly found herself at home. An avid hiker and (enthusiastic) novice climber, she enjoys exploring her new desert scenery, and loves the vibrant yogi community that Phoenix offers.
As a teacher, she enjoys creating dynamic sequences that help keep students present in their practice and teach the body to move through new pathways to find familiar places. Having personally experienced many of the physical and psychological benefits that can come from regular practice, Julie firmly believes that yoga has something to offer everyone to make them feel happier and healthier. Julie endeavors to share the love and joy that yoga has brought into her life and to help inspire others with the simplicity and beauty of breath linked to movement.
