Julie Wright

My yoga journey began in 1999 when I took my first yoga class. As a personal trainer and group exercise instructor, I was always looking to improve my physical condition – yes, that is why I took my first yoga class. Little did I know how the practice would change my life completely! I was very pleased with the physical benefits from yoga, and the beautiful heart-opening spiritual practice began to unfold and the love deep inside of me began to shine and I wanted to share this love! After two years of dedicated practice I began teaching yoga.

Jennifer Lawson

I discovered yoga during a complicated, challenging, extremely sad time in my personal life. I had been physically active for several years, running, lifting weights, etc. Prior to my experiences on the mat, on days when I did not “exercise”, I was ridden with guilt & disappointment. Yoga began to take the place of other physical activity & within about 4 months I had stopped running/lifting weights.

Certifications: 

RYT 200 hours - Its Yoga in Cincinnati, Ohio
RYT 200 hours - American Power Yoga in Dallas, Texas
Also a Pediatric Occupational Therapist, licensed in Texas
