About the teacher:

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, has studied Meditation with Cindy Lee and received certification as a Meditation Teacher at the Expanding Light Ashram in California. Julie is certified with the International Association of Yoga Therapists and is a former full time 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, California, Florida, Costa Rica and several studios across Vancouver Island Canada where she continues to teach and practice many styles of yoga, including Yin Yoga. In recent years she has been a regular visiting teacher in Hawaii and a teacher trainer with the Evolation Yoga collective, delivering lectures and clinics on Yin Yoga, gross and subtle anatomy, yoga philosophy and postural mechanics.

Julie holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Masters Degree in Health Studies and continues to teach Nursing part-time. She is passionate about sharing yoga with others and feels that 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.
