She loves sharing her transformative and supportive practice with others. This love began in college, when she attended her first class.

E-RYT 200 • AERIAL YOGA TEACHER
Julie signed up for her first yoga class at the gym. From there she knew she needed to share it, teach it and give it away. Her passion to share the benefits of the practice were set alight. She preaches that yoga can provide anyone better concentration, balance, strength, stamina and awareness. She believes that yoga causes the individual to peel back the layers of "should-a, would-a, could-a" and find yourself. To Julie, facing these challenges head on is what it's really all about. She earned her 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher certification at Power Yoga Works in Philadelphia, PA. She completed her E-RYT in February of 2013, and also became certified to teach Aerial Yoga in 2012. Julie thrives on gaining knowledge and growing under the auspices of wise teachers and sages she finds in the most unusual spaces. She also daylights as a graphic designer.

FOUNDER • RYT 200
Sunrise has been a concept since she began her career in corporate wellness. During that time she attempted to provide a holistic solution in a system that western medicine had always been the preference and where stress and chronic pain were the topics all day and most days. When she had the opportunity to experience MSBR Mindfulness at Jefferson, she totally said yes, which ultimately piqued her interest in exploring what other modalities were out there to complement meditation. Around that time was when life and career collided and the solutions become personal as did her desire to discover chronic pain relief for her mother Jean which led her to Energy Healing and Reiki . Given the results, she knew the awareness of these combined specialties needed to be experienced and shared throughout the community and the roots that would eventually become double sunrise yoga began to spread further.
Combined with years of pushing her own body to the limits, a few ultra marathons and the intense hours of a corporate career her body and mind began to suffer and eventually, a shift was required. Around that time is when she finally listened to a friend that had gently reminded her for years... try yoga. Fast forward a bit to a yoga retreat in Sri Lanka where the healing modalities of yoga resonated, which then translated to time spent a few years later at an intensive training in Baja Sur, Mexico. It was in that desert that the dream out loud dream of double sunrise yoga was committed to and many moons later, what has become a reality to share with our community.
