I am known to trip and fall for no apparent reason, so to say I stumbled into yoga is pretty accurate. Yoga was an alternate method of stretching muscles abused by a lot of running; initially I didn't think it was a long term thing. However, something in me woke up. I continued to practice.

 

I remember the day I experienced the practice and teacher right for me. BOOM! I fell hard. I received my Baptiste Power Vinyasa 200 hour certification in 2008. I love the peace and the power that yoga offers. What else can I practice, at times working so hard, feeling so empowered, yet in the end so present and calm? I moved to Seattle in March 2017. I am filled with gratitude for the connections yoga is helping me create in this beautiful city! The journey continues.

 

I am inspired by my family, friends, the mountains and Kermit the Frog. I love to create in my kitchen and read a good book. I have a serious case of Wanderlust. Where next? My yoga mat now goes right on top of my running shoes in a backpack. Without yoga I might not have heard the monks chanting in Battambang as I sat in meditation on the veranda. I definitely would have missed a rainbow in Phnom Penh had it not been for a sun salutation.

 

It’s the journey, not the destination.



Julie Christopher instructs the following:
  • Level 1.5 Baptiste Power Vinyasa
  • Level 1.5 offers the full Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga sequence. This class moves at a slower pace than a Level 2 class, but the pace is steady. The instructors offer the modified variations for all of the postures, and students are invited to work at their own levels. This class is the perfect next step for people who have completed the Intro series or for practitioners new to Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga.
