About Julie (Gita)

Julie (Gita) Means I have been practicing yoga since my teen years.  I feel like yoga is the thread that has woven my whole life together; it’s the place where I connect to myself, where I find peace, calm and joy.

In 2002, I became certified to teach Kripalu Yoga, and began teaching in Indiana, PA.

In 2005, I met Kali Ray, world-renowned yogini and founder of TriYoga. With its emphasis on breath and flow and systematic awakening, I knew that TriYoga was the practice that all of my years of personal study and practice had been guiding me toward.

I now teach only TriYoga, as I believe it is a brilliant and completely safe system of yoga. It is strengthening, opening and balancing, and transformational on all levels!

With practice, you will feel at peace with your body, calm in your mind, and have more energy to flow through your life.  I cannot wait to share this beautiful practice with you!
