I hope you enjoy reading my newsletters. 

I wish to share my knowledge as a Yoga Teacher, Herbalist and Food Therapist. If there is anything in particular you would like me to include in my next newsletter or Facebook post please let me know.

There are about 500 visitors to my website each week which is amazing. 

I hope 2023 brings much learning into your life.

I have ran out of space for new Newsletter's after seven years of writing them monthly and the older ones are so valuable to the courses that I don't want to delete them. 

*At the moment instead of writing them I am writing another book, as well as giving a simple fortnightly yoga & Ayurveda guide found in the water section of the website and a weekly "wisdom lecture" on my new Facebook page Bird Song. My Empire Bay Yoga Facebook page was disabled in November last year unfortunately but you can still access it although you or I cannot post on it. It was closed due to the Optus security breach. 

Namaste Julie


I recieved an email regarding the incorrectness of a Mudra described in my newsletter.

"Kali mudra and ksepana mudra are thesame. What is your source for the ring finger version ofKali mudra."

 I am glad it came to me. It helped me to let go of the need to be right. There is no right or wrong. Ask yourself, does this nourish my heart and spirit? My reply to this email.                             

Thank You for taking the time to read my newsletters.

You will find over time as you read yoga articles that many things are not the same. It is an ancient practice which has been passed down by many students and teachers of yoga.

I like to follow my heart in these matters and am open to more than one source of information.

I use Mudras for Modern Life by Swami Saradananda for my work with Mudras. It is a beautiful book with so much information, meditations and knowledge and has added much more depth to my classes and my own practice.

KALI MUDRA “By interlinking fingers and thumb, each element supports the strengthening of the earth energy in your upward-directed ring fingers. This leads to an experience of groundedness and security and makes you more open to intuitive wisdom”

I also love David Frawleys books and I know from reading some of his work that his knowledge of mudras is different with different fingers representing different energies.

I do not think that either of them are wrong. 

The newsletters are my experience and learning from many different books which then flow into my yoga classes, newsletters and books.

I try only to tap into my intuitive wisdom.

Namaste Julie

I would love to hear from you, your thoughts or ways in which yoga has helped you personally 

Positive or Negative 

*I practice a monthly zoom satsang with Swami Saradananda author of Mudra's for Modern Life and this is a lovely review of my online yoga classes.


Dear Julie,

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

with best wishes
