She began teaching classes in 2005 at Penn State and has taught ever since. Expect an eclectic playlist with music to match the mood of each drill. Julie will not only push you, but she will give you tools to motivate yourself!

• Finish with stretching exercises to increase flexibility
Bring a mat and step out of your comfort zone (and your shoes!) to reap the rewards of Barefoot training.
Did you know that your feet have a lot of nerve endings and visceral sensors that feed info directly into your spinal cord. Your muscles and spinal cord have some intelligence of their own! They sometimes circumvent the brain and just adjust your movement based on the info that your feet and ankles send regarding changes in the surface that you are walking on and more.
VINYASA YOGA -- ALL LEVELS
Vinyasa means "breath-synchronized movement," and Vinyasa yoga is a series of poses that will move you through the power of inhaling and exhaling. Vinyasa movements are smoothly flowing and almost dance-like. Good for those starting their journey into yoga, more experienced Yogis that want to fine tune their practice, or those looking for balance, alignment, functional strength and a deep stretch. This class will be customized toward the students in attendance. Come to your mat for strength and peace. Heated, 80-85 degrees
