Meet the Teachers
Julia found Vinyasa Yoga in early 2011 in the midst of training for a half marathon. At the time, she was in great physical shape so she was shocked at how challenging she found yoga to be. Yoga helped her to identify and heal several pain causing injuries which resulted in a much more enjoyable running experience. Besides the great physical benefits yoga provides, Julia was also feeling a shift in her mind; feeling less stressed, more patient, more present, more aware, and found her mind to be generally less «chatty». It became clear that yoga was changing her life for the better.
After completing her 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training in 2012, Julia was more passionate than ever about yoga and wanted to share her love for yoga with others through teaching. As a student, Julia's teachers guided her through her practice to help her feel strong, confident, and powerful. As a teacher, Julia strives to help her students feel this way, too.
In 2015, Julia began a daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga and really developed a love for the practice. To dive even deeper into her practice, she completed a 40 hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with David Swenson in 2016. Her personal practice heavily influences her teaching style so you will find her classes to be traditional, with a strong focus on breath and alignment.
Julia is committed to providing students with an ideal environment for them to discover the beauty and power of their own practice and their own yoga. She hopes that you will join her for a class soon!
Tiffany got her first taste of yoga in 2009, after just 20 minutes of practicing she was left with a renewed and energized feeling that kept her wanting more. Having a sporadic practice for many years was not enough and in 2014 Tiffany began a rigorous daily home and studio practice. The more she found herself on the mat the better she felt in all areas of life. Tiffany found a passion she hadn't felt since being a child playing softball and cheerleading.
Going head first into any yoga class or workshop she could find, Tiffany has even traveled to New York City to learn from well known instructors. Wanting to further her knowledge in all things yoga and share that passion with others. In January of 2016 Tiffany completed her 200 Hr Svadhyaya Teacher Training at Stillpoint Yoga Studio in King of Prussia. The journey of the self through yoga has made a huge impact on how she views life. Tiffany feels lucky to have had the opportunity to work with yoga practitioners of all levels to help each and every person find the strength and passion inside themselves. With focus on alignment and core, along with the gentle touch of adjustment, Tiffany enjoys finding new ways to help others connect with their inner strength and encouraging the physical strength to support it.
