Hi, I’m Julia
I help women cope with the trauma of life during the pandemic by showing you techniques to release the stress & anxiety in your body and mind.
I experienced extreme sadness, loneliness, stress and anxiety when the pandemic isolation began. I, then, took some time to check-in with myself. I knew that I had what I needed inside of me to get to a better place. So, I went back to my training as a 500hr RYT yoga instructor, certified yoga for trauma teacher, and certified reiki practitioner. I was able to cope with what I was feeling by moving, breathing, meditating, and using deep relaxation.
I believe that I can help bring you to a more peaceful place within using these same techniques that helped me. I will give you tangible tools that you can use when you feel like life during the pandemic and beyond is overwhelming.
I truly believe that helping other women during this time is the most important work that I’ve ever done in my life.
Words can’t express how good I feel on so many levels after one of her classes…
Women are more negatively impacted mentally by the pandemic due to the extra burden they take on due to gender disparities. Women may be dealing with being pregnant, having children, parenting while remotely working, loss of support and social connections due to isolation, and an increase in intimate partner violence. These impacts are felt world-wide by women of varying classes and income levels.*
I feel that we must take care of the women that are taking care of the world.
