Julie has created a unique blend of self-discovery through the linking of yoga and psychotherapy. She bridges her love for yoga with the depth work of psychology. Her work with clients is grounded in the body- and sessions vary according to client’s needs. A session may be focused on dialogue- sharing through words- or through the body, or a combination of both.
A typical session may begin with a five minute guided meditation, or restorative yoga posture, then move into movement or dialogue. Or a session may begin with a verbal check-in that then leads to expression in yoga or movement, as the need arises… or not. Some sessions are all verbal, some all movement. I meet the client where she/he is in the moment. Read this article for a good overview of how yoga works with psychotherapy:
