Almost a decade after that first class with Julie I practice yoga every day and it makes me feel good, for this I will be forever grateful.

I met Julie very early one morning outside a yoga studio in central Dublin. We were both embarking on new phases in our lives, Julie had recently returned from London and I was new to yoga. I was in my early 60s and uncertain if yoga and I would agree at all. That morning in Julie’s class was a total inspiration; I found confidence and belief and have never looked back. Although I live in Cork, I come to Dublin regularly to practice with Julie, both privately and for workshops. Since that first class with Julie I have travelled to India, California, Portugal and Italy and trained with many gifted teachers but Julie remains the most inspiring teacher I have ever encountered. She manages to make her classes both accessible and challenging, somehow this comes naturally to her, it is a gift few teachers have.
