Julie Alter

Describe yourself in three words: Kind, hopeful, happy.

Why do you teach yoga? It's not about looking a certain way but yoga is about tapping into the essence of who you really are. I teach to continue to learn. The more I practice and learn the more I lean toward prioritizing "Being" practices that focus on meditation, pranayama, Yoga Nidra, restorative yoga and feeling balanced on and off the mat.

What inspires you? Beauty and being outside in Nature inspires me. The simple beauty and perfection in a flower or watching birds at my feeders.

 

Julie believes yoga is for everyone.  It is her mission to honor and embrace each student's search for self awareness.  Julie's aim is to teach with compassion, love and a sense of humor.  Find your inward feeling and outward spreading of joy in each individual accomplishment through yoga and interactions out in the world.



Julie Alter instructs the following:
  • Hatha and Restore - Beginner/Intermediate
  • Mixed format class. Hatha yoga for all body types and fitness levels will warm the body as we pay attention to alignment and breathing cues. Then, enjoy deep relaxation in restorative yoga postures designed to release tension and stretch muscles--giving you the opportunity to calm your system and detoxify from over-stimulation in a fast-paced world. Using props, blankets, and bolsters, yoga postures and breathing exercises are sequenced to open your body slowly without resistance.
