Julie Johnston


Julie began practicing yoga as a relief from her hectic schedule and stressful job. She quickly came to realize that yoga was not just about the physical movements, but also about the calming of the mind and spirit. As previous elementary school teacher, she has a passion for working with children and began her journey of sharing yoga and mindfulness by getting her first Children’s Yoga Certification through Karma Kids in 2010. This ignited a whole new passion for yoga and she has taken several other youth oriented yoga trainings from organizations such as Street Yoga, Yoga Education for Autism Spectrum, mini yogis, Sean O’Shea Foundation, The Art of Yoga Foundation, and Niroga Institute. Her experience with youth ranges from toddler to teen and she is the founder/owner of Zen Warriors – Yoga for Youth. In 2014, Julie obtained her 200 hour RYT Certification from Elka Yoga, deepening her own practice and expanding her teaching experience to adults. She is also is a Reiki Master. Incorporating her energy and sound healing experience into her gentle, restorative yoga classes, Julie creates the ultimate zen relaxation class. In 2015, Julie explored yoga in the element of water and became certified by Aqua Kriya Yoga, bringing yoga to the pool.
