About Julie

I have been practicing yoga for 20 years and teaching since 2008.  I began teaching just one class – after work with my office coworkers.  Within a couple of years I opened a small studio and made yoga my full time profession.  Since then, it has been my privilege to witness the healing benefits of yoga in others.  Students have shared with me that they feel better physically and mentally. 

After operating the yoga studio in Raleigh, NC for five years, my husband’s work brought us to the Nashville, TN area.  I now focus on working with individual students. Through personalized instruction, each student can experience improved health and well-being. 

I continue to study on my own and with others 
as part of my personal practice and my professional education
