Welcome to my world of wellbeing, yoga, graphic design and events.
I enjoy spending my time being creative and creating experiences for others. So I’m either working as a graphic designer, creating events or teaching and sharing yoga, meditation, relaxation, reiki… wellbeing.
I came to yoga initially to help manage a stressful life – crazy work hours with an intense home life, there was very little time for space, to decompress, to be me… until those moments lying on my mat in shavasana when I could let go and let be.
So I found space.
During many years working and playing with different practices and prana, the life-force or energy, that animates us, I started to find connection and this is what I keep returning to. It has helped me through times of stress, grief, anxiety… allowing me to breathe again. I found freedom.
This is what I would like to share. These practices that have been passed down from ancient traditions and cultures that help to make life more enjoyable. When I see the freedom they bring to those who practice, I understand this purpose.
As part of a desire to create better life experiences and sharing what I know, I also like to help people in the wellbeing world using my knowledge of graphic design to promote their businesses through graphics, web design or creating events.
Helping you to help yourself, but also… helping you to help others.
I have a BA(Hons) in Media & Design with a successful career in Graphic Design since 1992.
I studied at Nature Care College in Sydney in 2005 where I achieved the Advanced Diploma in Yoga Teacher Training. This in-depth study of the tradition covered asanas (postures), pranayama (breath), dhyana (meditation), relaxation, yoga nidra, restorative yoga, yoga for special needs, yogic philosophy, anatomy & physiology and the principles of Ayurveda.
I enhanced my yoga training further becoming a qualified Childrens Yoga Teacher in 2007 teaching in schools both in Australia and the UK.
In 2017 I completed a Certificate in Fertility Yoga.
I have been a qualified massage therapist since 2007 holding an Advanced Diploma in Remedial Massage and a Certificate in Ayurvedic Massage and Therapies.
I have been a reiki healer since 1999 providing pure reiki sessions or in combination with massage, yoga or healings.
I also have experience and certified training in Chinese Medicine & Meridians, Energetic and Spiritual Healing.

Yoga Nidra… the ultimate relaxation
Yoga Nidra is a transformational practice that creates freedom and wellbeing through a complete nourishment of the senses.
It is an ancient yogic practice that is both a mind-body therapy and a systematic form of guided meditation that induces the ultimate deep relaxation and healing.
This healing practice allows you to step into the internal dimensions of your consciousness.
It is often called yogic sleep, as it is said 45 minutes of yoga nidra is the equivalent of 4 hours sleep, and yet it is so much more than just relaxation, it is actually a process of awakening to your true nature.
A sankalpa is an intention, a positive resolution, a heartfelt wish for yourself or for others, something you would like to draw into your life. The use of sankalpa in the yoga nidra session is very powerful.
In the yoga nidra state, the mind is exceptionally receptive, so we state a sankalpa which is impressed on the subconscious mind when it is receptive and sensitive to autosuggestion.
It should be stated in the present tense as though it has already manifested in your life. It can be a simple yet powerful statement such as “I am happy”.
Try it and see what magic unfolds…

Feeling the love…
Julie is a kind and thoughtful yoga teacher. she has great focus on alignment and I always feel supported and safe in her experienced hands. She has depth of knowledge and understands the spiritual aspects of yoga. I highly recommend her classes.
Thank you for holding my soul in your hands and helping me on my journey towards the light.
Julie is so insightful. Her goddess therapy is a valuable opportunity to reflect and learn. I always come away with new focus and energy. Julie guides and interprets so that I discover new ways to view my situation.
I am so fortunate to have met Julie some years ago and have recently experienced another fantastic heart space healing session with her.
Through a unique combination of reiki, massage and guidance, Julie intuitively reads what is going on in my body and helps me to heal.
She is truly gifted and I look forward to our sessions so much and cannot wait for the next one!. Sending much thanks, love and hugs.
