Powerful Transformations

“Since I have been taking Julie’s yoga classes for a little over a year, I have learned so much and gained a lot of strength and flexibility.  I have just finished her seven-week Chakra Class and would like to recommend it to anyone who wants to get in touch with their mind, body, and spirit.  Julie is such an inspirational teacher who showed me how to heal myself.  Thank you from my heart!”

“Julie Martin has worked in my physical therapy office for more than two years.  During this time, I have found her to be a great benefit and asset to the therapy patients.  Her skills as a yoga instructor are well-received and make a difference in the lives of those who follow them.  She has a great ability to see an individual’s needs and to help with the strengthening, balance, and self-confidence needed to help individuals find their potential.  Her knowledge and skills assist patients recovering from injury and degenerative diseases to regain their independence and self-esteem.  I believe in the work she is able to do in changing the lives of others.  Learning from her has changed me and the way I treat patients in physical therapy.”

“Pyramid Lake was life changing for me!  Julie took us outside the walls of a studio and the familiar grip of the yoga mat and taught us to trust the earth.  Nestled in a cove aside “the mother stone” we grounded our feet deep in the uneven sand, full of tiny curled shells of the purest white.  The soft mantra music in the studio was replaced by the serene stillness of water which hardly moved and we could hear the exchange of our own breath.  The place was as powerful as the practice.  It was exposed.  There were no trees, no telephone poles…everything looked bare.  The tufa rock formations changed with every shift in the sun and when the full moon rose, I was in awe of how alive I felt, how grateful for this earth.  It was a place with room to breathe, no expectations, just taking you as you are and becoming part of it.  Thank you for such a blessed and unique experience.  Julie’s classes are about becoming whole and balanced, and this place, combined with the drums and the meditative yoga, was more than replenishing.  It filled a void.  It healed.  Thank you.”

“I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia 16 years ago.  As you can imagine, I have tried a lot of different programs and help over the years.  I met Julie about a year ago.  I had never tried Yoga and wasn’t too sure about it.  I am over sixty and never thought that my body would be capable of all the moves and stretches I can now do.  My balance is a lot better, my core strength is better, and my general health is better.  I can’t say enough about Julie’s knowledge and understanding of the human body.  It has been a wonderful part of making physical therapy work much, much better for me.”

“I had always practiced yoga at home and was self-taught.  I never truly appreciated the art of yoga until I went to one of Julie’s classes.  She is one of the most inspirational people I know.  She has helped me appreciate and understand yoga in a way I never thought I could achieve.  My emotional and physical well-being has improved dramatically and I continue to look forward to attending Julie’s classes.”

“Participating in the series of Chakra classes with Julie was more than just the experience of taking a class–it was a period of transformation.  It’s an experience that provides the tools and the insight to learn much about the universe and those around you–especially about yourself and how to maintain balance within–by providing practical steps that you can return to again and again throughout your life.  You are given the in-depth knowledge and practices that you need to work on each Chakra, both individually and as they relate to each other.  She provides a safe place, nurturing and creative environment in which to learn, and fills the space with peace and beautiful energy.  No matter what your present frame of reference, point of view or faith may be–you will be a better, healthier person for having taken these classes.”
