Julie began practicing Bikram Yoga in July 2006 to calm her nerves and keep her occupied after her husband was deployed to Afghanistan. Little did she know how much that first day walking into the hot room would absolutely transform her life. It was one of the best decisions she’s ever made and has been an inextricable part of her life ever since. She attended Spring 2010 Teacher Training in Las Vegas and began teaching in Las Vegas, where she also served as Manager at Bikram Yoga Green Valley. In April 2011, she moved to Virginia where she now teaches and serves as Manager at Bikram Yoga Reston. She loves teaching and practicing Bikram Yoga, surrounded by positive, bright yogis, sincerely delving into their practice and becoming better, truer versions of themselves in the process. Before teaching Bikram Yoga, she was classically trained on the french horn, received her Master of Arts Management at Carnegie Mellon University and worked in arts management field. Julie enjoys spending time with her husband, their wacky muppet dog, watching (and discussing) movies, art, trying new restaurants, traveling and glitter.
