Julie began her exploration with yoga nearly 20 years ago. Initially as a means to deal with the stress of university studies but over time she developed a wider awareness of the benefits of yoga in her life.
Balance, healthy breathing, asana, meditation and deep relaxation are a key focus in her yoga teaching. Julie creates a sacred and safe space for students to reach their full potential. You will leave her classes feeling renewed, rejuvenated and calm. These classes will support not just good exercise for the body but a focus on your overall wellbeing and clarity of mind.
Julie completed her 200hrs yoga teacher training at the Sivananda Yoga Meenakshi Ashram in Madurai, Southern India. She continues to pursue her education in yoga and the healing arts. Julie recently returned to India to complete her 300hrs Akhanda yoga teacher training with Yogi Vishvketu at Anand Prakash Ashram, Rishikesh.
This ongoing process of learning is what provides the fresh insights that inspire her work. Additional recent studies and workshops have included Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga with Sadie Nardini; Applied Anatomy for Yoga Teachers and Management of Injuries with Nancy Braithwaite; Journey to the Heart of Yoga with Yogrishi Vishvketu; plus workshops with Neville Cregan, Bill Wood and Caroline Lang.
Julie’s joy is teaching authentic yoga from the heart. It is an inspiration to see the development and growth of students. She has a passion for Yoga Nidra (Yoga Sleep) and loves to share the benefits of this powerful practices both in person and online.
Julie runs regular classes in Exeter, Exmouth, Topsham and East Devon plus workshops in Devon. She also hosts yoga & massage retreats in the SW, nationally and internationally. Julie is also available for yoga 1 to 1 sessions.
Julie is also a qualified Lomi Lomi (Ka Huna) Bodyworker, Reiki Master and writer. A Lomi Lomi session with Julie – combining bodywork, breath work and reiki – is an experience of celebrating and honouring the divine in you, which will delight your senses and leave you feeling open and expanded.
Julie is currently writing a children’s illustrated spiritual book which is taking slightly longer than anticipated! It is most definitely a learning process and the book is being lovingly crafted. Watch this space!
