My name is Julia. My journey towards yoga began with a debilitating car accident that left me with sciatica and a boat load of pain. After trying many different pain management techniques, my physical therapist started teaching me some basic yoga asanas (poses) to stretch and retrain my muscles. In less than a year I was pain free and hooked on the healing effects of yoga asanas.
In order to share my passion for yoga and to help others, I took a 200-hour yoga teacher training course on Koh Tao Island in Thailand. During my studies, I began to see that not only did yoga heal my body, it was also beginning to heal my mind and help me through some of the most trying times in my life.
My studies of yoga and anatomy led me to pursue a degree as a Certified Nutrition Therapist through the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Colorado, I will complete my degree within the next year and I hope to use my knowledge in helping others along their journeys towards a healthier life - mind and body.
It is sometimes hard to see the silver lining in a tough situation, but if it wasn’t for my accident I wouldn’t be the person I am today and I wouldn’t be able to share the amazing gift of yoga and nutrition with everyone who attends my classes.
I'm looking forward to meeting you in class!
