Julie’s classes combine the solid, alignment-based foundation of Mukti Yoga with an intuitive teaching method that weaves the ancient wisdom of yoga into everyday life. Julie created Mukti Yoga as a way for her students to access yoga from the inside out and reach their highest potential by tapping into the power of their own breath and body movement. Creative and specific sequencing focuses on matching asana and intention with lunar cycles, seasons, and astrology. She draws from her diverse background in vinyasa, meditation, visualization and yoga nidra to offer a class that is supportive for beginners, challenging for advanced students, and accessible to all levels.
With a background deeply rooted in exercise physiology, Julie helps students and teachers marry the spiritual aspects of the practice with solid anatomical principles. In addition to her public classes, she is also a passionate teacher for many elite athletes, including the US National teams for volleyball, soccer, and cycling.
Julie is certified at the E-RYT500 level and is committed to making Mukti yoga available to students throughout the world. She travels for workshops, retreats, and trainings internationally and in the United States.
Julie learned while young to use the power of her mind through meditation and mental imagery to improve gymnastic performance. She went on to study Psychology and Phys. Education at Union college in Kentucky, where she was a springboard diver and soccer player. Her passion, focus and meditation earned her All-American recognition in diving.
