Through yoga, fitness and dance we share creativity, passion and joy with others. Jules' passion for well-body living began at an early age. Her father, in the mid 70's, incorporated yoga postures as a component for his high school football team's conditioning program while Jules and her mother attended yoga classes. From a student to instructor to trainer, Jules quickly developed her career in mind-body fitness and wellness. Throughout the years, as a mother of four and military wife, Jules found peace, connection and power through her personal daily practice and her deep connection and relationship with her students. In 2004, Jules decided it was time to share her energy, knowledge and gifts with others and developed Yoga Power Teacher Training and Enrichment Study, 200 RYS. The program is now taught in Florida and Okinawa, Japan. Her classes bridge the gap between the disciplines of yoga, dance, fitness and aerial arts. She believes yoga makes you GLOW from the inside out!
