Julie’s yoga journey began with a running injury. Looking to find the same endorphin release while healing her ankle she found bikram yoga and was instantly hooked to the structured postures, the heat, and the zen-like state after class. She realized that through doing yoga she was finally able to calm her mind and that benefit extended to her home life. Later on during pregnancy, looking for a lighter routine, she found Vinyasa yoga and enjoyed the fluidity of linking breath to movement. Post-pregnancy she was looking for a better combination of the heat of bikram, but the constant movement of a true Vinyasa Flow. Taking her first Rockin’ class with Gina Dunn, she finally found a good balance of both as Gina helped her realize how amazing yoga is for the mind, body, and spirit. It was at We Yogis that she fell in love with the practice and realized how much more yoga is than just a workout. Inspired by her teachers and wanting to “pay it forward” she signed up for Asana Dealers Teacher Training in 2015. Under the amazing guidance of Gina Dunn, Nicolle Callahan, and Cheryl Oliver she realized her calling to be a teacher. In her classes she aims to get you sweating, refine your movements, and help you realize the benefits of yoga on and off the mat. Meet her there!.
