Julie Iatron discovered yoga in 2013 as a way to help cope with her grief after the unexpected passing of her father-in-law. Initially cautious and unsure of herself, she found the courage to let go of worry and the need for perfectionism in her practice. After just a few months, she found that she craved the peace that stepping onto her mat brought. As a busy wife and mom, she knew she needed to make time for self-care, and her yoga practice became the foundation of a more intentional lifestyle. Almost immediately, she wanted to share her newfound awareness and knowledge with others and began to consider the possibility of teaching yoga. In 2017, Julie completed her training with Gail Lachs at Windsoul Studio as a 200-hour Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor. Her training included Vinyasa, Hatha, restorative, and chair yoga. In 2019, she pursued her passion for Yin yoga and became certified through the Summers School of Yin Yoga with Josh Summers.
Julie feels that yoga, meditation and energy healing are tools that everyone can use. Her classes are carefully sequenced and designed to be accessible for beginner as well as seasoned yoga practitioners. She encourages her students to discover what works for their individual bodies and skeletal structure. As a master level Reiki healer, Julie loves to offer Reiki healing energy as an option for those in her classes, and believes in creating a secure space where students can go within, challenge themselves and find inner stillness. Her goal for each of her students is that they are able to come to their mat, focus on their breath and move their body safely and in ways that feel good, cultivating a deep sense of ease and self-compassion.
With two daughters of her own, Julie recognizes the importance of yoga and mindfulness for children, and her teaching practice would not feel complete without her children’s classes. She loves to balance active movement and play with breathing and quiet time and frequently finds herself amazed by what her youngest students have to teach her.
