About us

I consider myself so very fortunate to have been born into Yoga. It was my bonding time with my mother growing up. Since then it has always been there for me during my training in theatre, dance and artistic endeavours, enabling me to call on its wisdom and always returning to it as my home. Like a child who learns and grows through the diversity of her experiences, I explored many different types of yoga and had many great teachers but no one guru, finding the best guru to be that who resides inside myself and in all beings that I encounter everyday and in every lesson I learn.

Starting with Iyengar in the 70’s other styles I have been blessed to experience include; Jivamutki, Classical Hatha, Bikram, Vinyasa Flow, Satyananda, Kundalini, Restorative Yoga, Power, Raja, Bhakti, Anusara, Yin Yoga, Acroyoga & SN Goenkas Vipassana Mediation.

Through travelling I began teaching. I was living in Ecuador and each morning I would practice on the beach. Before I knew it, I was teaching weary travellers and creating Yoga and Spanish programs. This then lead me into Indiawhere I received my teacher training in a beautiful ashram outside of Nashik called Yoga Vidya Gurukul.

I am a constant student and some of my recent inspirations and trainings have been with BodyMindLife in Sydney, Shannon Gannon and David Life, Jasmine Tarkeshi, Katie Manitsas, Shiva Rea, Chanel Luck, Tiffany Cruikshank, Tara Judelle and of course the Acroyoga monkeys, Jason Nemer, Jenny Sauer-Klein, Pau Castellsague, Alexander Ruiz.

In a class with me you will find a floating playlist, a focus on alignment and breath, flow and stillness, joy and silliness, a fusion of philosophy, real life application, science and art melting pot with elements of strength and softness. I encourage the dancer of life to emerge from within. My classes are constantly changing as I respond to you and empathise with you.

Jules is a certified AcroYoga teacher & yoga teacher who teaches workshops and retreats internationally.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

After having just completed my RYT 200 I have been inspired to further my yoga journey and my own personal journey inward. I have fallen in love with yoga and how it has changed my life and I just want to continue to explore so I can share this beautiful gift with as many as possible. Jessica
