Hi! I'm Julie
I’m a lover of life and a good slice of pizza. I’m a sucker for sunrises and sunsets alike. I’m a single mom of three... and it’s safe to say they have already taught me more than I’ll ever be able to teach them. I’m an early riser and a total bookworm.
I'm no stranger to challenges and hardships. The death of my brother, deep financial troubles, divorce, single motherhood... I've learned to use all these seemingly devastating events as fuel for growth and wisdom.
But it wasn't always this way. Because of the events in my early life, I learned to fear change and novelty. And to seek control as a means of coping with what I saw as a threatening world.
I got used to seeking comfort and certainty, so much so that I stopped thriving. I lived in my little world seemingly “happy,” except when I would get that nagging feeling that something was… off.
It's all about self-awareness and balance.
In both coaching and yoga, the goal is to have my clients truly understand themselves and use this path of awareness to find balance.
The perfect meeting of the two is where the magic happens.
(And I love magic!)
How Can I Help?
My mission is to guide you towards expansion and wellness.
Whether you're struggling with situations in your life or looking to incorporate healthier habits into your day, I offer just what you need.
I sat down yesterday to follow some of the recommendations you had given me and I realized the impact our sessions had on me.
I find myself looking for balance within the things I do not only in my life, but in my job, and the people I work with and guide.
Working with you reminded me of the importance of not forgetting who we are, to always look within, and to listen to my inner voice. Also, the importance of being in contact with myself daily and accepting myself in all my forms.
Also, dealing with situations instead of having situations determine my thinking.
Thank you for giving me a space to remember myself and work on myself. I still have a long road to go, but thanks to these sessions I’ve increased that awareness
Your sessions have allowed me to expand my perspective around life since your classes don’t focus solely on physical performance but also how to use all the resources we have as human beings, teaching me about solidarity, support, teamwork, understanding between teacher and student as well as increasing my understanding of human beings in general. I’ve learned a lot about compassion to myself and towards others. You have taught me how to have confidence in myself, which has increased my motivation and has led me to praise myself for my accomplishments. I’ve learned a lot about growth and about mutual and genuine inspiration. Our classes are always full of rich conversation, where we not only discuss practical yoga concepts and theory, but also lessons that go beyond the conventional regarding human values and growth, which adds a deeper meaning and hence make these moments some of the most beautiful and pleasant ones of my day.
Working with Julie was something very unique and special for my personal health. As I went through each session with her, I noticed way of thinking shift and started to see things with a different light. Friends & family started to comment on how “confident” I looked. Little did they know, Julie was drilling me behind the scenes with “Naty - whats your thought? What are you feeling?” All in in all, a couple months later and I’m still seeing changes in my personal life develop that to be honest, never thought would happen..
I found Julie in a very difficult time in my life where I couldn’t seem to find an exit, I needed to heal... I dove in 100% and trusted her guidance from day one. I healed a lot of things and learned to see life from another perspective. Julie always led me to look beyond my eyes, she taught me to see with my heart and, above all, to see myself with my heart. To recognize my own healing tools. Julie is a woman with an extraordinary capacity to connect.
I would give Julie 10 stars if I could! She has made my introduction to yoga both meaningful and enjoyable. Julie is very professional with her response time as well. I am lucky to work with her.

Julie is the most amazing yoga professional, but more importantly amazing person! I had the privilege of working with her February- July 2015 and during that time she completely helped me transform my mind and body. My flexibility increased drastically and I was able to relax my mind during tough situations by using the breathing methods she taught me-and being a professional athlete, that was tough! You won’t find anyone better than Julie-I attest to it.
