About this pro

Yoga is my life, my passion and my purpose. I teach a variety of styles from Gentle Restorative and Iyengar Hatha to Advanced Vinyasa Flow. My classes are compassionate and creative yet truly authentic and traditional. The safety and comfort of my students are my highest priority. I have been practicing consistently for 20 years and teaching for 7. It is amazing to witness the healing and transformative effects these teachings have had for so many people and it is my mission to help as many as I can. Originally a tree-climbing tomboy from  St. Charles, Illinois, when I moved west in the 90’s and discovered the yoga community and its open-hearted people, it was true love from the get-go. Now at 46, when I’m not caring for my family of 5 in Mission Viejo, CA, I am teaching, practicing or studying yoga. I humbly admit I feel whole. I breathe gratitude, love and respect for my teachers, students and all yogis. 

“May all beings be happy and at peace.”

Om ShantiNamaste

    Loved my introduction to yoga. Julie was able to precisely describe each formation and took time to make sure I adequately followed her instructions. Looking forward to the next session.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to speak on the phone with potential students to be sure we are a good match. Then we schedule an initial class or consultation. If that goes well we set up a regular day, time and place or practice with a flexible agreement. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

200 hour training from 2011 plus many additional workshops, classes, independent study and about 1400 hours of teaching. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge $75 per class that is 60 to 75 minutes long. I charge extra for driving further. 


How did you get started teaching?

I practiced for 10 years and realized the huge impact it had on my health. I decided that I owed it to the practice to help spread the word. Now after 20 years of yoga I am very passionate about getting absolutely everyone on the mat!


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages, stages and levels from kids to elderly, pro dancers, other yoga teachers, inflexible men, cancer patients, people seeking help with stress, grief, pain and healing, but mostly it is just everyday folks looking to improve their health.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Listen to your gut instincts and if you don’t feel perfectly safe and trusting of that person, walk away. When you look into a yoga teachers eyes you should feel like family. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Ask about their training and experience, then look them up with Yoga Alliance. Ask for several references.
