Julia’s artful and creative teaching is born of her passion for stirring embodiment and self-participation in others, inspiring confidence through alignment, deep love of yoga and her infectious sense of adventure. She began practicing yoga and meditation as a child, and immigrated to the U.S. from Scotland in 2001, spending several years working in the radio and recording industries before turning to teaching, so she offers a natural sense of ease in surfing the waves life offers, and meets students best in the realm of empowering transformation. She creates an inspired space for students to witness themselves in a state of constant evolution using progressive sequencing, creative movement, and humour.
Julia is an E-RYT 200hr with Yoga Alliance, and is currently completing her 500hr Prana Flow certification. She has studied primarily with Integral Yoga Institute of New York, Shannon Paige, Shiva Rea and Douglas Brooks. She moved to the Rocky Mountains in 2009 and is the Yoga Director for the Vail Athletic Club. Julia is also a Certified Maharishi Ayurveda Wellness Consultant and leads workshops and trainings across the country. She is thrilled to be a Lululemon Ambassador and a Rishi for VedaBars. Outside of the yoga studio, Julia is most often found exploring the Rockies on foot, bike, ski or belay, and sometimes all of the above; she completed her first triathlon in the summer of 2012.
