It was within the four sacred walls of a dance studio that Julianne first found her voice - she felt that her body could express what words could not. A former professional dancer and current E-RYT 200, Julianne completed her first 200-hour yoga teacher training at Bala Vinyasa Yoga in 2013 and her second 200-hour training with mentor Jason Lawner and the Fluidus Method in 2017. Diving deeper into the idea of yoga as movement therapy and with a bigger passion for sharing her practice, she co-founded The Inspired Life Teacher Training. With a double bachelor of science in Communication and Psychology and a minor in Exercise Physiology, this sacred practice is a culmination of all that she is, woven with multiple schools of thought. Julianne loves the practice of yoga because it is an opportunity to get intimate with yourself, to show up as you are, to explore with courage, to feel and to have an experience of you as youthrough the vehicle of your body. It’s through her practice that Julianne experiences the magic that exists within each and every moment and the home that is inside of her breath.
