About Julia


My teaching offers a blend of my life’s work since I was nineteen: from a degree Kinesiology in Montreal, Quebec at McGill University, to my studies (2021- current) in Neuroscience, Psychology and Mental Health at King’s College, London. In between, I have spent fifteen years traveling the world from Asia to Italy to Nicaragua, meeting thousands of students and doing my passion: teaching and creating life changing experiences using movement, breath and research.

I strive to always remain a student first: What is relevant to us in society today? How can we thrive in light of our ever-changing world? What movement, medicines, methods – create catharsis and optimal health?

Science, from the perspective of spirituality, is in fact “spirit” but it is however you define it in your own life. It is important to me to teach from both: the heart of all beliefs, all ways of living, with evidence, if you will: the scientific research of health and wellness.

I have been a teacher of yoga for almost twenty years, and since 2003 have graduated around 1000 students from my programs who have gone on to teach or open their own schools via 200hr, 300hr trainings and continuing education courses. Students include health care workers, body workers, nurses, parents, business coaches, mentors – all ages, shapes, sizes.

My primary teachers, who I’d like to thank, include my time living and breathing yoga at Pure Yoga, Hong Kong with Patrick Creelman. I also learned the art of pranayama (breath work) from Paul Dallaghan and Sri Tiwari Ji while in Thailand, in lineage with the Kaivalyananda tradition. As well as my own lineage of teachers (mom and dad). It is in my blood and I love it. There are many others in between that I’m missing, you know who you are!

I look forward to meeting you!
