Julia is an Certified Baptiste Yoga teacher and third year medical student at Texas Tech. Her love affair with yoga began at a Baptiste studio in Ft. Worth in 2008 and has been going strong ever since.
“My practice begins on the yoga mat and stretches into every part of my life. When I was interviewing for medical school, I would sit in the hallway and do ujjayi breathing to calm my nerves. Now, I use ‘yoga breathing’ as a tool any time I want to get out of my thoughts and just be in the present moment.”
After completing Levels 1 and 2 teacher training with Baron Baptiste in 2009, Julia began teaching. She is especially grateful to her teachers; Baron, as well as Philip Urso and Brooke Hinkle, for their inspiration and guidance. (She is also very grateful for the many different styles of yoga pants, of which she can never seem to have enough.)
