Welcome to Holistic Yoga

Yoga is for everyone… regardless of age, flexibility, body size, gender, ethnicity, religion, fitness, health or wealth.

These friendly, relaxed classes to help you manage mild to moderate aches, pains, stress and anxiety using gentle yoga practices, mindfulness and somatic movement.

I’ve a lot of experience in teaching people who think they can’t “do” yoga. The truth is, if you can breathe, then you can do yoga. And if you practice regularly, it can be a great support to your health and wellbeing. 

Featured on ITV’s Tonight Programme & BBC Online. Trained with Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs, The Minded Institute and Anatomy in Motion

Students’ Reviews

I was a complete beginner and slightly nervous when I joined Julia's class but she immediately put me at ease. She is very experienced, beautifully spoken and very hands on. Her classes improved my flexibility whilst helping me learn to still my mind. Can not recommend her highly enough.

I have done much body work in my time. Julia is always coming up with things I have not done before while remaining faithful to the spirit of yoga. She knows how to encourage people and how to be tactful with their various difficulties. She uses her voice well and explains things very well. It is a pleasure working with her
