Julie has been practicing yoga for more than 15 years. After trying yoga for the physical challenge, she soon found it's benefits to be much more far reaching. Julie completed Yogaview's level 1 and 2 teacher trainings, and has been teaching in Chicago ever since. Julie's classes are safe and appropriate for all levels. With an emphasis on alignment and breath, her vinyasa flow classes are challenging yet accessible, with both Ashtanga and Anusara influences. Julie is also trained in prenatal yoga, and offers an active but modified style of vinyasa flow that is appropriate and safe for all stages of pregnancy. Always the student, Julie adheres to a disciplined self practice and is always seeking more knowledge that she can share with her students. Mostly, she continues to be inspired by and forever grateful to Quinn Kearney , Tom Quinn, Claire Mark, Amy Owen and Geri Bleier for the gift of their knowledge and guidance.
