Combining a strong understanding of the body’s structure and systems as well as offering extensive experience and skill in yoga and its therapeutic potential, Julia provides her students the opportunity to easily understand and incorporate yoga practices into their lives in a meaningful way. Originally interested in yoga as a means of recouping some of the flexibility she lost because of sport rock climbing, Julia quickly realized the benefits of yoga and its healing of injury and illness in her own life. In addition to being an exercise specialist educated in exercise science, Julia is certified as a yoga therapist (C-IAYT) by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, E-RYT500 and certified vinyasa yoga teacher. Within her 20+ years of experience she has taught all levels of yoga in a variety of styles throughout the greater Columbus area, leading yoga therapy and yoga teacher trainings at the 200-hr and 500-hr levels and mentoring students enrolled in YTT. She currently teaches classes throughout the city and at Columbus State Community College. She is a registered continuing education provider with Yoga Alliance.
