Your Yoga Teacher

Hi, I’m Julie Cooper, a passionate and caring yoga teacher.

Yoga came into my life when I was faced with some challenging times with a family illness. Feeling unable to escape the mental and physical stresses was when I found, and fell in love with yoga, it gave me the freedom and distraction I had been searching for.

I began to feel the need to slow the movements down, and take it from a physical exercise, to yoga and feel the multitude of benefits on our many intricate layers with this ancient practice. I found yoga to be such a humbling gift my goal is to pass this gift on to others with Yoga With Julie.

What can Yoga do for you?

Through yoga I will help you develop awareness and understanding of your own body, it’s alignment, and how your body moves. To promote pain-free movement and increase longevity of one's functional movements. Yoga isn't about forcing your body to fit the shape of a pose, it's allowing your anatomy to express that shape in its own unique way.

Imagine feeling calmer, more relaxed & restored

Why Working Slowly Matters

Allowing your body to physically let go, allows your mind to become quiet and still, but more importantly, it allows your nervous system to re-balance and switch off from the stress responses of everyday life.

Working mindfully helps to encourage comfort, confidence and helps to keep your movements safe.

Yoga has an amazing ability to reset your day with a different perspective or focus, often what seemed a priority before class can be reassessed and viewed differently afterwards.

The more regularly you practice yoga, the more the new perspective becomes your new thought process. 

I enjoy helping people find new levels of physical and mental relaxation and bringing balance and harmony back into their body and life.

You may be familiar with my yoga classes from attending my Community Yoga classes that were held in Rolleston, Lincoln, Tai Tapu and West Melton.

Or also my private yoga classes at Burnham Military Camp and Springston Community Hall.

In June 2020 Yoga with Julie evolved, and opened our own home-based Yoga studio, to offer Yoga classes in small nurturing class sizes, in a serene and tranquil space. We offer Yoga, Flow Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Yoga Nidra, One-To-One Private Tuition, Corporate Yoga & Flow Yoga at Burnham Military Camp.

People often comment how quickly the class has gone and I am frequently told:

‘I feel so relaxed & calm’

‘I feel more centered’

‘I love the meditation part’

‘I feel amazing, so serene’

‘It’s bliss, ‘it’s wonderful’.

“A self-nurturing practice is not an indulgence.
It is a necessity.
We can support others only if we support ourselves”.
