Julie began practicing hatha yoga in the early 90’s but it wasn’t until 2005 that she became more dedicated in the pursuit and study of yoga through a regular Bikram Yoga practice. Since that time, she has received certification as a Bikram Yoga instructor; attended advanced Bikram trainings; and has done Seva (service) at several of the trainings, volunteering as the onsite Registered Nurse. She has studied Mediation with Cindy Lee and at the Expanding Light Ashram in California. Julie is certified with the International Association of Yoga Therapists and is a former Nurse Educator. She has studied with Tony Sanchez (Master Core Series), Bernie Clark (Yin Yoga), Sagarmurti of the Bihar School of Yoga (Professional Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy) and a diverse group of yogis’ through the Yoga Therapy Certification Program at Mount Royal University in Calgary. Her curiosity and appreciation towards other yogic traditions has also led to participation in several Kundalini Yoga workshops and Bhakti (Bhajan) yogic practices. Julie has taught yoga in France and many studios across Vancouver Island Canada, including a Native Treatment Center where she currently assists with group Yoga Therapy classes; in recent years she has been a regular visiting teacher in Hawaii.
Julie is also a student of the non-dual pointing’s of Advaita Vedanta and is a devoted follower of Advaita Zen Master Sri Mooji Baba. Julie feels very blessed to be part of the Evolation Yoga collective. There is no higher calling than to be inspired to grow, expand and create through a shared experience that serves to draw us closer to our true nature.
