Born in Germany and being originally from Kerala, India, yoga has always been a part of life for Julie since she was little, becoming a guiding concept of life beyond being solely an exercise form. The contrasting worlds of the east and west have allowed Julie to see the world with an open minded perspective and with a strong curiosity to see and learn about other cultures. She travelled the world and lived in several countries before moving to Salento, Italy where she is now based with her husband and son.
Following a career at Condé Nast in London where she launched brands such as Vogue, GQ and Glamour worldwide, she desired a new challenge and devoted herself to her passion of a healthy body and mind balance. After a lot of self-practice as a devoted yoga scholar, Julie trained with a vast variety of teachers in London, LA and in South India where she completed her teacher training.
Her sessions are an all-round yoga experience as taught in the traditional Indian yoga culture. This includes breathing exercises, a yoga asana work out and meditation.Styles vary according to student’s level, but each class is designed to energize the body and nurture a spiritual awareness. This contributes to increased fitness and health, finding inner peace through strength and ultimately enjoying this life.
Julie has taught yoga to everyone from corporate to mums, beginners to advanced and various age groups from 3 years to 90 years. Julie has also trained as a dance teacher and Ayurveda practitioner which both influence her style of teaching.
