Who is Julie?
I am a Yoga Elder (5000-hrs registered) with the Yoga Independent Network.
I’ve been studying and practicing yoga since 2009. Back then, I was living and working in Tamil Nadu, India. I have a spine issue called scoliosis and to address my back pain I had private lessons for 2 years with an Indian master, who shared with me his life-time experience.
I graduated in March 2012 in the Sivananda Ashram in Orléans -France- and became an Anatomy nerd after completing my curriculum with Blandine Calais Germain -France- ; Leslie Kaminof -New York- and Thomas Myers -Maine-
During the last 10 years, I developed hands-on knowledge of how to adapt yoga techniques to the most vulnerable.
Today the scope of my work is:
- To bring Yoga in the community.
- To offer Yoga Therapy to people with a wide range of conditions (neurological, immune, respiratory and cardio-vascular conditions, cancers and post treatment, diagnosed mental health issues, musculo-skeletal issues).
- To work with people with special needs.
- Educate movement teachers to anatomy, to allow them to refine their skills.
