About The Teacher

Julia Attevelt was born and raised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She received a Bachelor degree in Physics and Astronomy at the University of Amsterdam. Pursuing studies in Theoretical Physics she completed her Master in Physics with a year long research project optimizing solar panel efficiency, where she revealed a growing passion for sustainability projects. During this time it became clear to her that in order to live sustainable internal transformations are often needed as well. 

Gradually yoga, mediation and healing became part of her path. The exploration of these passions led her to travel in Peru where she fell in love with the abundant natural beauty and indigenous wisdom of the region. In Peru she became manager of Healing House Cusco, a center offering therapies, yoga and hostel accommodations. She received her certification in Theta- and Reiki Healing, and completed a 200h Yoga Teacher training. Now she shares her wisdom and passion in the silent mediation retreats of Meditation Retreat Peru. 

Her mission is to encourage people to step in their own empowerment and to show that every difficulty or sickness is actually present for learning and growth.
