Registered Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor-500 hr
Certified Yin Yoga Instructor through Josh Summers
Julie Gatheral came to her first vinyasa yoga class looking for a change during a difficult time. With an open mind and sense of curiosity, what she soon discovered was a way to re-connect with her self through breath and movement, igniting the playfulness, creativity and freedom she had as a child. She was also surprised by the unexpected challenge both mentally and physically, not to mention the benefits of increased strength, toned muscles, increased flexibility, lower blood pressure and a calmer mind. This led her to seek out a 200 Hour Teacher Training program that she completed led by Jen Ryan of Yoga Loft, Wilmington, MA and Nicole Grant of Yoga Mandala, Winchester, MA.
Julie is now a life-long student of yoga, constantly taking workshops and classes and learning all she can. Julie loves to share her joy and understanding of yoga with others in a non-competitive environment by teaching creatively sequenced vinyasa and power classes that can adapt to all levels by offering cues that aid one to safely enter and exit a pose. Seeking balance, Julie also enjoys teaching gentle yoga and yin yoga as a complement to the more active forms of the asana practice.
The genuine warmth with which Julie greets her students makes them feel welcome and accepted. The deep understand and knowledge with which she teaches provides them with a practice that feels safe and attainable, but it is the calm sensation of balance and satisfaction they leave with that keeps them coming back to her classes time and time again.
