- ॐ Yoga ॐ
I have been trained in Classical Hatha Yoga, a tradition originating in India. I teach classes online and across the Niagara region, in various locations, retirement/nursing homes, offices, schools, and in homes, to classes of all sizes and privately for groups and individuals. My classes combine mindful movements, breathing, concentration, relaxation and meditation to allow your body to connect to your mind to help them work together.
Yoga was the way I learned how to become aware of what my body was telling me and gave me the relaxation my mind and body needed throughout my recovery.
ॐ Yoga Classes ॐ
I teach yoga classes online and in the Fort Erie, Welland, Port Colborne and Niagara Falls area and throughout the Niagara region.
ॐ Yoga Nidra ॐ
Yoga Nidra is a deep conscious relaxation meditation to release mental, physical and emotional tensions while rejuvenating the body mind and soul.
ॐ Chair Yoga in Retirement and Nursing Homes ॐ
I travel to nursing and retirement homes to share chair yoga
ॐ Office Yoga ॐ
With having come from a corporate background and working in offices I realized how important taking breaks throughout the day were to help coordinate the body and mind along with increasing productivity. I provide what I like to call "Balance Breaks" teaching yoga; before, during or after work to give time to those who don’t make time for themselves. These are classes done in work clothes, taking a mindful moment to coordinate mind and body.
ॐ Yoga at Home ॐ
Sometimes people aren’t comfortable coming into a class with a group or can’t make it at the scheduled times, so I have been known to teach yoga in your home or at a time that is more convenient for you individually.
ॐ Healing Mantra Chantingॐ
I offer mantra chanting classes online and in Fort Erie, Welland, Port Colborne and Niagara Falls around the eve of the full moon to enhance the power of the mantra. This is a form of meditation where we concentrate on the mantra by chanting it aloud 108 times.
- ॐ Meditation ॐ

Excellent topics to help with stress management and to teach meaningful tools to use and apply in life situations. Enjoyed the weekly chanting elements and closing the class with an inspirational quote that related to the focus/topic of the week. - LS
I work in Long Term Care as a recreationist and we really enjoyed having Julie at the home to do Therapeutic Touch. She was able to quickly connect with the residents and make them feel comfortable. Initially, a few residents were hesitant and unsure of what to expect from Therapeutic Touch. However, after the session they stated that they felt better and more relaxed. It was mentioned that watching someone else receive therapeutic touch was relaxing. We also had two residents verbalize that they noticed less pain the week after the session. Overall, it was highly beneficial and we look forward to having Julie at the home every month. - AG
