Julie’s teacher training dates
Santa Barbara, CA:
Julie has a grounded and sensitive approach to teaching which stems from her deep seeded commitment and love for the practice of yoga.
Julie was born and raised in Santa Barbara, CA and drawn to yoga at a young age. Yoga brought a deep connection and understanding to her life that allowed her to feel peaceful and at home in her body, mind, and spirit. It gave her the tools to transform her habits into behaviors that she not only enjoyed, but that served her ultimate well being.
When she was 19 she was certified with 200 hours from YogaWorks and moved to Santa Monica to pursue further study. After an additional 300 hours of study with YogaWorks and an apprenticeship with Kia Miller, she practiced Karma Yoga by working with children in villages in Peru. When she returned to the states, she began teaching and continued studying by learning to teach Kundalini, Sattva Prenatal Yoga, and The Brain Cleanse from Master Teacher, Siddhi Ellinghoven. She made her first yatra to India at the beginning of 2014.
Julie is passionate about holding a space for others that promotes a sense of community, connection to spirit, and personal transformation.
She believes that a vital physical body, a kind mind, and an ample passionate spirit are the best things to have in this world. Her passion seeps into her teaching by working with her students in a very real and grounded way as she focuses classes on developing a stable and clear inner world while creating a feel good experience in the body.
Julie teaches Flow and Kundalini group classes at multiple studios in Santa Barbara. She offers workshops that allow us to dive into the deeper dimensions of yoga and apply them to our lives. Her private clients include The Central Coast Eating Disorder Treatment Center where she works with program participants on anxiety, negative thinking, and breath/body awareness
In addition to her daily yoga practice Julie loves to travel, climb, hike, garden, and especially loves spending time with her family, her two pups, and beloved partner.
