Julie began her yoga practice in 2002 with a desire to seek further knowledge of the yogic lifestyle, philosophy, and practice. Julie decided to study yoga and graduated from the 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training at the Sivananda Ashram in Val Morin, Canada in 2004. She is a registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance. While practicing yoga during pregnancy, Julie learned how beneficial yoga was for her during pregnancy and childbirth. She wanted 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 now certified in Yin and restorative yoga. Therapeutic yoga classes are held in the Deland, Fl. area.
As a mother of two and having a birth doula by her side along with the support of her midwife, she believes that every expecting mother deserves to experience the same support that she had at the births of her two children. Julie is also a Certified Birth Doula with DONA International, a certified HypnoBirthing® Educator with HypnoBirthing®, The Mongan Method and a Certified Lactation Counselor with the Academy of Lactation Policy and Practice. Julie strongly feels she is meant to be a part of women’s wellness, prenatal health, labor support, and to help educate expecting families to have the birth that is meant for them and their babies.
