- Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher
Find her on Facebook at Yoga with Julia
Julia is passionate about yoga. "For me, it’s like coming home to myself. It provides a sense of being whole and encourages a focus within". Julia has taught for 5 years and has been training in the Iyengar style for 11 years. In joining the collective of teachers at Dartmouth Yoga Centre, she brought her enthusiasm and insatiable curiosity for yoga practice, and her rope wall! She understands how yoga can help students achieve a release of memories stored in the body, allowing them to really be present. She says it’s like waking up: "those aha moments are precious". She elaborates: "the inner journey of yoga can be like taking a miner’s lamp inside yourself to explore. While you are looking for yourself - your soul - in the depths, and shining your light within, light can reach you too". Julia wants a whole new paradigm for how we can be in life. She wants people to live well and age well, and to hold the light.
