Julie is best known for her soothing voice in Yoga Nidra guided meditation—it is truly her calling. Thousands around the world benefit from her recordings on the global meditation app, Insight Timer. You’ll also find her as Julie Yogaressa on Spotify, Amazon, YouTube, Apple Music, iTunes, Google Play, and CDBaby.
In a former life, Julie was a high-powered business exec in the demanding high-tech industry, where she welcomed mindfulness and yoga as a blueprint for how to live a healthier, happier life. She learnt how she could integrate the calm of yoga with the pressures of work, merging The Peaceful Yogini with The Fired-up Business Warrior.
Thousands of Oms later, Julie relishes how to live well; through movement, mindfulness and meditation, with the aim of “doing yoga” on and off the mat — sometimes easy, sometimes not. She shares her experience with others: teaching mindfulness, meditation and yoga to individuals, groups, and organizations; and leading yoga retreats to exquisite destinations.
Julie is constantly inspired by the positive impact yoga has on people’s lives — she loves the motto, “If it doesn’t change your life, it’s not Yoga”. And when she’s not immersed in meditation, yoga and photography, you may find her sipping fermented grape juice, eating chocolate, and watching Dancing With The Stars (true confession).
