Julia took her first yoga class 18 years ago as a freshman at Washington State University.  It was love at first downward dog!  Since then she has practiced many genres of yoga, always coming back to Vinyasa. The fluid body movements always felt right and blended perfectly with her dance background. Julia spent 15 years after college in Seattle where she worked in the Apparel Industry, spending the last 7 as an apparel designer for a local golf company.  A move home to Olympia brought Julia to Buti Yoga. 

But felt like the perfect blend of dance and yoga, and the addition of loud music grabbed her soul. After one class, she was hooked and knew she wanted to be certified in the practice.  It's Julia's desire to share the Buti bliss with all women, offering the inner peace and confidence --- not to mention the challenging and full-body workout --- that this practice has brought to her.  

She enjoys spending as much time as possible on the Puget Sound and Washington Coast, hunting for the perfect sand dollars or agates, growing veggies, and exploring life with her two wild boys Cruz and Kona, sweet husband Greg, and two crazy dogs. Julia looks forward to sharing her love for Buti yoga with all of you ---- and you will love the smiles, laughter, and support you will find in her class.
