Like many, my yoga practice began as a physical practice. Over time it has grown to become much deeper than I ever imagined. “The greatest journeys in life are the ones that answer questions that in the beginning you didn’t even think to ask!” Unknown. I feel yoga has been that journey for me, and it is just the beginning! Yoga has changed my life in amazing ways. After a yoga retreat in Nosara, Costa Rica, I knew I wanted to share the gift of yoga with others. I completed my 200 hour Kunga Yoga Teacher Training at Wilmington Yoga Center with Noelle Cavanaugh and I currently am completing the WYC Teaching Internship and Mentorship.
My classes are composed of fun and powerful flows with a focus on connection to the breath. My inspirations are Music, The Ocean, Nature, Family, friends, my teachers and fellow students.
Julie instructs the following:
Sunset SUP Yoga | Open
Take your yoga practice off land and into the water! Learn the fundamentals of paddleboarding first on land with a review of water safety and then join us in the water as we warm up with a paddle to a pristine "floating yoga studio" created with just our boards and an anchor. Surrounded by nature, we will flow through a complete yoga practice available to all levels. SUP Yoga helps to build core strength and integration while cultivating awareness of the true present moment.
This class is seasonal and is weather dependent. Classes will be canceled by 5:00pm if weather is not in our favor. **Note when considering registration: evenings on the water have a tendency to be a lot windier than in the morning.
All yoga levels welcome and swimming skills a must. Please register and pay online or by calling the studio. Once registered, you will receive an email with drop in location and details.
Power Vinyasa | Open
Power Vinyasa Yoga uses mixed sequencing to build strength and flexibility through a vigorous flow. By linking together yoga postures through breath awareness and combining holds, intervals, core work, and balances, one will find this practice both challenging and transformative. The pace of the class can vary and each teacher tailors an intelligent sequence and playlist of uplifting music, to their own philosophy, offering diversity and creativity in each class.
All ability levels are welcome, as there will be modifications, options and specific alignment cues given throughout the class that appeal to all levels of practitioners. It is highly recommended that brand new beginner yogis partake in the beginner and /or basic level classes before joining an open-level class.
