Who guides the teacher training
Julia knows what long working days look and feel like. She has been a sales professional and consultant in big international cooperation for many years. A few years ago she changed her career and became a full-time yoga teacher, to not only change her life, but also help her students to change theirs. She has completed more than 700-hrs of training and is the owner of Warrior Princess Yoga in Copenhagen. Last year she created Office Yoga, which she teaches on weekdays to international students online. She further offers customized sessions to companies on demand. Her article about Office Yoga got published in the June print of Yoga Magazine UK this year.
I have been learning from Julia since we met in my 200-hr teacher training at Doron Yoga in January of 2020. She is thoughtful and fair in her feedback, which helps me improve not just my teaching style, but also my own yoga practice. Among many strengths, Julia excels with beginner-level adjustments as well as cues specific for virtual classes. Since I’ve been practicing yoga for over a decade and learned to teach with students in the classroom, I forget that most new students don’t know how to sustain Ujjayi breath nor to keep a slight bend in their knees in a down dog. Since working with Julia, they’re becoming a routine part of my in-class recommendations and reminders. I highly recommend Julia for anyone looking to improve their teaching. She is so open and willing to help without any ego-involvement, and it is refreshing and a pleasure to witness
I was looking for some options to engage with our employees but also make them enjoy their time in the office, then yoga came to my mind so I contacted Julia.
Her approach was perfect for our needs, we first started with yoga and later we added mediation, which was the best thing ever! After a long day of dealing with sales and customers, mediation is the best way to release stress.
Julia always brings new techniques and exercises to free our minds and train the body. I would definitely recommend her classes to anyone who’s trying to create a better atmosphere in the office.
