As an executive, Julia always looked to find inner balance and peace. Thus began her yoga journey in 2007.
Soon after beginning her yoga teaching career in 2012, Julia realized that there was a need to work with students on a more individual basis in order to help them find peace and balance within their bodies. This desire to help led to further studies in: prenatal yoga, The Kaivalya Yoga Method and Prema Yoga Institute program. Julia graduated from an advanced 500 hour training at Pure Yoga as well as established herself as a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) through the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
Julia’s passion for learning natural healing practices brought her to Kerala Ayurveda Academy where she completed Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor program towards completion of their Ayurvedic Wellness Practitioner program.
Along with learning about the inner workings of the mind/body/spirit connection through Yoga and Ayurveda, she always had a strong connection with energy healing. She would go on to become a Reiki Master in the Usui lineage, and a certified Sound Healing Practitioner & Teacher through the Atma Buti® Sound and Vibrational School.
Today, Julia’s journey continues as an integrative Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner aspiring to better support trauma resolution and resilience in her clients.
Julia strongly believes that we are all capable of healing ourselves. Through her dedication to her clients and students through a holistic approach Julia serves as a catalyst that ignites the healing fire within.
I can say with certainty that Julia is authentic and does this work out of pure love. - J D
