Athletics was always an integral part of Julie’s life. After recovering from serious spinal surgeries in her 30’s she needed to find a new way to challenge her body and find balance in her life. She found Bikram yoga and that experience opened the door to a whole new way of living and being! The physical benefits spoke to her but the spiritual and mental benefits were unexpected and amazing. She opened Half Moon Yoga Studio in 2012 in the community she grew up in and loves so that she can share all the goodness that comes from a regular yoga practice. Julie has experienced and believes in the therapeutic benefits of yoga and hopes that Half Moon students deepen their relationship with themselves and grow to trust their ability to heal themselves. She continues her training and personal growth studying with Gary Kraftsow and the American Viniyoga Institute. Besides her love of teaching, she enjoys learning something new, collecting antiques, tending her garden and 1790 farm house, and spending time with her family, friends, dogs and orange tabby kitty, Mr. Stubblefield.
