Julia started practising yoga as a sixth form student in 1990 and soon discovered that yoga helped to calm her anxiety, increase her energy levels and improve her confidence. Julia took a three year 500+ hour training in Hatha Yoga, accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga. Julia then went on to study Yoga Therapy with the Yoga Biomedical Trust and Yoga Campus. Since then, she has continued to update and broaden her knowledge of yoga therapy, anatomy and somatic-based movement. Julia gained insight and inspiration from many talented teachers (some of whom trained directly with BKS Iyengar and Vanda Scaravelli). But the real joy has come from teaching and learning from students for over twelve years, both one-to-one and in classes. Like Vanda, Julia views yoga as an evolving, creative discipline that can be adapted to suit any individual whatever their challenges and strengths. In her classes, Julia aims to read and respond to how students are feeling in their bodies, minds and spirits and create a class that will nourish, balance, relax and inspire.
