Julie’s Yoga Style
Julie teaches hot power, vinyasa and yin yoga. At the retreat, Julie will be teaching her empowered flow classes in the morning and her yin classes in the evening. Empowered flow is a vinyasa flow yoga class with an edge. This energizing class is designed to increase your strength and flexibility while integrating your breath and movement. In the evenings, we will wind down with a slow-paced, deeply meditative Yin practice. Yin is a series of long-held, deep stretches that allow your deep connective tissues to release. Julie skillfully teaches modifications and next level postures, making classes accessible to all levels of practitioners. Whether you are a beginner or more seasoned in your yoga practice, you will find what you are looking for at this retreat!
