As an executive, Julia always looked to find inner balance and peace. Thus began her yoga journey in 2007. Drawing upon a synthesis of Jivamukti and the Bihar schools of yoga she became a certified yoga teacher in 2012 through Shiva Shanti Yoga School.
Soon after beginning her yoga teaching career, Julia realized that there was a need to work with students on a more individual basis in order to help them find peace and balance within their bodies. This desire to help led to further studies in: prenatal yoga, The Kaivalya Yoga Method and Prema Yoga Therapeutics program. Julia graduated from an advanced 300 hour training at Pure Yoga as well as established herself as a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) through the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
Julia’s passion for learning natural healing practices brought her to Kerala Ayurveda Academy where she completed Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor program towards completion of their Ayurvedic Wellness Practitioner program.
Along with learning about the inner workings of the mind/body/spirit connection through Yoga and Ayurveda, she always had a strong connection with energy healing. She would go on to become a Reiki Master in the Usui lineage, and a certified Sound Healing Practitioner through the Atma Buti Sound and Vibrational School.
Julia strongly believes that we are all capable of healing ourselves. Through her dedication to her students and a holistic approach Julia serves as a catalyst that ignites the healing fire within.
Yuliana completed her first 200 hour training under Andrea Borrero and Matt Giordano. Since then she completed her Advanced 300 hour training at Pure Yoga under the guidance of Andrea Borrero and Miles Borrero. She has studied anatomy with Kristin Leal, Restorative and Yoga Nidra with Mona Anand and Gina Menza. She is currently working to complete the 800 Hour Prema Yoga Therapeutics Program under Dana Slamp. Her passion and commitment to therapeutics yoga has led her to work for Kula for Karma as a New York City Program Director.
Her Vinyasa class combines a strong and creative flow with an emphasis on alignment, focused breathing, and rediscovering the playfulness in each of us. She believes passionately in providing a space for her students to find stillness in their minds, freedom in their bodies, and perhaps healing what is meant to be healed. As a professional novelist she writes for the love of story and discovery. As a yoga student and teacher, she practices and teaches for the love of the discoveries made on the mat that help to make sense of the endless stories within all of us.
