Genuine and unique

My experience with Awakened Spirit Yoga was the journey of a lifetime. The leadership course was challenging, but those difficulties brought me to new places that I was not aware I could reach. The structure of the course was genuine and unique and Julia’s passion for the environment was contagious. I left feeling more confident in my choices and absolutely motivated to pursue environmental activism. Through this intensive course I gained clarity and motivation to follow the path of passion and love for pachamama. True to the name, my time with Julia and her co-creators was awakening.

Insightful, knowledgeable, inspiring

Julia is a gifted, insightful, knowledgeable and inspiring teacher of yoga and anatomy, as well as a talented healer, educator and ambassador for women’s health. Her intuition, sensitivity and precision enable her to read the language of the body and help individuals become more comfortable, whether they are on or off the mat. I highly recommend her as a yoga teacher and health educator.

The best teachers show  you where to look...

The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see. Julia guided me during my 200 hour yoga teacher training and I’m very grateful for her yoga asana, therapeutics and anatomy classes. I love her deep knowledge of the practice and her calm and healing presence.

I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor

Julia gave me one of the most singly empowering pieces of advice I have received in my years: believe in what you have to offer to the world. She blends her deep knowledge and belief of the physical, physiological, emotional, and spiritual benefits of yoga with harmony, grace, and love. I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor to encourage me on my journey of learning to become a yoga teacher!
