Julia was born and raised in Washington, DC, where she attended the Washington International School and met people from all over the world. After graduating from Pomona College in 2010, Julia taught English in France for a year, before landing back in the District.
Since returning to D.C, Julia has worked at Politics & Prose (in the Kid's section), Bistro La Bonne, Teaism, and The Fundamentals Academy. Through it all, yoga has been the constant grounding force in her life. So in 2014, Julia decided to deepen her practice by undertaking Buddha B Yoga's 200 hour Teacher Training program, led by Rexx and Valerie Samuell, with Hari-Kirtana Dasa. While she was in teacher training, she discovered how eager children were to learn the secrets of yoga. Soon after completing this intial training program, Julia went to the Yogaville Ashram in Virginia for their training in Teaching Yoga & Meditation to Children.
This wonderful program, led by Satya and Sadasivam Greenstone, filled her yoga practice with joy and light, and left her eager to help children and adults alike discover their inner yogis.
