Julie began her yoga practice in 2002 with a desire to seek further knowledge of the yogic lifestyle. She decided to study the philosophy of yoga and graduated from the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at the Sivananda Ashram in Val Morin, Canada in 2004. While keeping with her practice during pregnancy, Julie learned how beneficial yoga was for her during pregnancy and childbirth. She was inspired to share this awareness to other expecting mothers. In July of 2012 Julie completed the 85 hour prenatal yoga teacher training with Wisdom Method School of Yoga. She has also completed over 200 hours in Yoga Therapy training and is certified in Yin and restorative yoga.
