ABOUT THE TEACHERS
Julia found Vinyasa Yoga in early 2011 in the midst of training for a half marathon. At the time, she was in great physical shape so she was shocked at how challenging she found yoga to be. Yoga helped her to identify and heal several pain causing injuries which resulted in a much more enjoyable running experience. Besides the great physical benefits yoga provides, Julia was also feeling a shift in her mind; feeling less stressed, more patient, more present, more aware, and found her mind to be generally less "chatty". It became clear that yoga was changing her life for the better.
After completing her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2012, Julia was more passionate than ever about yoga and wanted to share her love for yoga with others through teaching. In 2015, Julia began a daily practice of Ashtanga Yoga and developed a true love for the practice. To dive even deeper into her practice, she completed a 40 hour Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with David Swenson in 2016. Her personal practice heavily influences her teaching style so you will find her classes to be traditional, with a strong focus on breath and alignment.
As a student, Julia's teachers guided her through her practice to help her feel strong, confident, and powerful. As a teacher, Julia strives to help her students feel this way, too. Julia is committed to providing students with an ideal environment for them to discover the beauty and power of their own practice and their own yoga.
…and one day she awoke, mid twenties, just on the other side of a harsh breakup, stressful job and feeling low. Kate asked if she could tag along with a friend to a yoga class and her whole life changed. She found something to look forward to, feel good about, a sense of community, peace of mind and so much more! Kate jumped in with both feet and was soon taking teacher training with some of the greatest teachers around; the staff at Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia, PA!
Kate teaches a Vinyasa flow style in the Ashtanga lineage. What does that mean? You will be led through a series of postures that flow one into another with hundreds of years of wisdom and alignment behind each posture or asana. We concentrate on the breath and awakening the light that resides within each of us.
Kate's mission is to help others feel the way that her teachers helped her feel. She strives to provide her students with a practice that challenges the body, soothes the mind and revitalizes the spirit, building connection. It is very important to Kate that students realize that Yoga is more than just exercise, but rather, it's a spiritual practice. Kate has been blessed with being a Lululemon ambassador for the King of Prussia store and traveled to Whistler to participate in the Lululemon Ambassador Summit in 2014.
Jaime Miller, MSPT
Jaime is a Physical Therapist, mom to four amazing kids, and Yogi. She has a B.S. in Clinical Science and M.S. in Physical Therapy from Ithaca College. She has practiced in various clinical settings including acute care, inpatient rehab, skilled nursing facilities, and most recently, home health. She has always been very conscious about health and wellness, and started practicing yoga in 2012 after having her 3rd child as a way to get “back in to shape”. She quickly found that yoga was much more then just a workout. It was physically challenging for sure, but also a time to quiet the mind from making endless lists and thinking about crazy schedules.
As a physical therapist she has always been fascinated by the human body, alignment and, movement. Having a strong background and understanding of the structures in the body has helped deepen her yoga practice and has enabled her to incorporate these principals with her patients. Jaime believes that once you start having more of an awareness of your overall health, and how your body is meant to move, there is a shift. You begin to crave exercise and movement because it makes you feel good and better about yourself. You begin to think more positively. Everything starts to align.
