Julie is an RYT-500 and the Co-Founder/Owner of Blue Lotus Yoga Studio (BLYS). A former gymnast and choreographer, Julie began taking classes in the early 2000s with Gregor Singleton at Baron Baptiste in Boston, MA. She was immediately struck by the challenging nature of the practice, both physically and emotionally.
Julie received her 200-hour certification through Charm City Yoga and Kim Manfredi in 2014, 50 hours of Yin Yoga training with TJ Maher in 2017, and her 300-hour certification in 2021 with Kate Curry and Blue Lotus Yoga Studio. She has additional certifications in areas such as the Advanced Study of Asana, Yin & Restore, and Assisting. In 2019, Julie became a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP) and offers specialized workshops for CEU credits.
In addition to running the day-to-day operations of BLYS, Julie leads vinyasa classes to students of all levels, workshops, CEU trainings, and destination retreats. She lives in Annapolis with her husband and their three sons.
