Yoga is the relationship that is built on trust between the body, the soul, and the breath to your own individual human spirit. It is creative freedom, a form of personal release, and discipline to keep your sense of self in the present moment. Julia grew up in Northern Michigan, where her yogic practices began in 2012 through meditation to express a similar release. Julia furthered her studies in the art of asanas and engaging in Buddhist philosophies shortly after. In 2019, Julia became certified through the Yoga Alliance at YamaYoga in Milwaukee instructing classes aiming to guide individuals through their own freedom of expression, building strength and breathing techniques while being in tune with the vibrations from sound therapy.

In Julia’s free time, she enjoys creating art and music, climbing, adventuring with her dog, graphic novels, attending musical events, and cooking/eating so feel free to share all your favorite recipes with her!

Yin-Yoga is based on the Taoist concept of yin and yang, opposite and complementary principles in nature. Yin is the stable, unmoving, hidden aspect of things; yang is the changing, moving, revealing aspect. In the body, the relatively stiff connective tissues (tendons, ligaments, fascia) are yin, while the more mobile and pliable muscles and blood are yang. Connective tissue responds best to a slow, steady load which is why we hold the poses for longer to create length and strength. In this class we engage in a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine where areas are especially rich in those connective tissues. This class is great for climbers as we store the powerhouse of our energy and muscles in our legs as we used our core area for center of gravity, as well as providing patience in your everyday busy mindset. Warming up your body before class will greatly benefit in your favor!

All levels are welcomed.
