Over seven weeks my yoga classes are carefully planned to gradually strengthen and build flexibility in your whole body.

The classes change with the seasons and are feminine and empowering.

In yoga terminology we are circling the chakras. The energy centre's that run through your spine and body.

The seven classes are supported by free online yoga and meditation classes and 3 free yoga & Ayurveda courses

Kind words & reviews: Thank You.

"Julie is a fabulous host and yoga teacher, very calm and friendly. Maria."

"The practice you offered was wonderful and I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to attend..Denise."

"A gentle, nurturing approach to yoga that also allows so much space for learning new things. Charlotte."

"The yoga was amazing. Rosie"

"It is true every yoga teacher brings their own unique gifts and wisdom to their classes - and you most certainly have been an inspiration even after 30 odd years of random yoga practice. Fiona"

"I have learnt so much about myself and my body during the yoga sessions a lot that I will take away with me and continue, you have made me realise how important it is to make sure you take some time out for yourself. Laura"


Dear Julie

I particularly like your venue and presentation. You make yoga practice & mudra seem as though they are something that can (and should) be a part of everyday living.

with best wishes


Swami Saradananda's beautiful books and zoom Satsang teachings have influenced and inspired my classes. Mudras for Modern Life. The Power of Breath. Chakra Meditation. The Cleansing Power of Yoga. Sitting Comfortably.

Bird Song -Women's Circles

My little studio in Bensville. Let me know if you'd like to receive my Bird Song texts.

A place to practice women's ways. To sing, to dance, to meditate, to dream, to wish, to nurture yourself.

There are only six spaces. Text me to book. Namaste Julie  

WORKSHOPS will be running on Saturday mornings 10 - 12. Cost $50

Saturday 25th May 10 - 12. Power is in your hands - Mudra Workshop. The hand gestures of yoga are an Ancient art form and beautiful to practice. Learn how they are connected to the energies of Earth. Water. Fire. Air & Space. They are used to enhance meditation, some help relax, some build confidence, some energise. We'll begin with a lovely hand massage meditation, learn about their connection to energy and the chakra, pick a mudra card each and practice them all and finish with gentle flowing movement powerful mudra and affirmations. 

Saturday 8th June 10 - 12. Can a crystal change your mind? Ayurveda teaches how to use crystals, known as Gem Therapy for meditation, insight and healing. They are connected to energy & chakra and are another beautiful way to add more depth and detail to your meditation practice and to your home. Choose a crystal to work with, find out how to apply it to energy/marma points, is it a fire crystal, earth crystal? Will it cool or warm, energise or calm. Take home your crystals powerful affirmation.

MOON CIRCLES will be held on an evening from 6 - 7.30 pm. Cost $20 

No spots left, looking forward to a beautiful evening

An invitation to an evening of candlelight, lanterns, meditation, healing sound & nurturing.

Saturday 22nd June 6 - 7.30 pm

We will be working with the element of earth and the Base Chakra as this Full Moon is in the earth sign of Capricorn. A beautiful time to move within. We find it so difficult to find time to relax and now is the time, the nights are at their longest and it's an opportunity to feel warm, safe and cosy. Darkness is the Yin time, the black of the Yin/Yang symbol, the tha of Hatha yoga, which is feminine energy. Close your eyes, breathe deeply, lets begin. I'll teach a special Melissae meditation. Try Mugwort tea, the herb of the dreamer. Soften, surrender, let go with gentle restorative yoga. Learn viloma, a powerful yet simple breathing exercise for relieving stress and anxiety. So many lovely things to enjoy....

"My wish is to help empower women to create and live a beautiful life. It is time for us to begin to create change. Let's encourage and nurture love, gentleness, peace, compassion, caring, softness, warmth, joy and feminine grace. 

Change must begin in our own lives and then spirals out into the world around us.

A beautiful quote by Ticht Nacht Han puts this into perspective.

"The greatest gift you can give your family and friends is your happiness."

Every Yin posture has a beautiful, gentle, restorative adaption. You don't force yourself into a yoga asana, you begin with a gentle variation. You learn to breathe and soften and then your body begins to relax, to surrender, to trust you, to let go and you move deeper and deeper....And while your resting, in a deeper space, you listen to the wisdom of the yoga teachings.

Which inspire and encourage you to not only change your physical health but the health of your mind and spirit. 

Namaste Julie
