I am so excited to share Whole Self with you, but first, let me share a little about myself. I’m an internationally recognised TV presenter, E-RYT500 yoga instructor, nutrition expert, published author, and the creator of Whole Self Yoga. I created Whole Self after seeing a need for more modern, energetic, and uplifting self-care and yoga training that would address the needs of daily life.

I was a burnt out mom of 4, and every day was a repeat. I was taking care of everyone else and forgot who I was, what I wanted, and who I wanted to become. Once I started to incorporate self-care into my daily life, my true, authentic self was able to breathe. From this space, this is where I re-discovered not only who I was, but my passions came alive. I started to live for me.

I’ve taught over 4,250 HOURS of In Real Life teaching in studios since my teaching career began over nearly 12 years ago. I’ve headlined Wanderlust festivals 3x to over 8,000 ppl combined, written 4 best-selling well-being books, and now am the presenter/host of a very successful CBS/Viacom TV series. And I want to share my knowledge of what I’ve learned over the past 12 years with you.

Yoga, nutrition and self-care have been the foundations to my success and I want to share all that I've learned so you too can live a life full of promise, strength and happiness. xx Julie
