Hello, I am Julie. I started this blog simply because I wanted to keep a record of my own journey in healthy and sustainable living. I have been a vegetarian for the past 10 years and now trying to go vegan. It’s been a while now that I have wandered into experimenting Ayurvedic and Macrobiotic diet as well as Raw and Vegan culinary that provides energy and healing. The recipes which you can find here are my experiments to create simple and healthy food to nourish the body. I am also a yoga enthusiast.
I was trained as a yoga teacher at Swami Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana (S-VYASA). Headquartered in Bangalore, India, S-VYASA has yoga centers all over the world (http://svyasa.edu.in/). Since successfully completing my yoga instructor course, I have been teaching yoga on weekends and weeknights with S-VYASA Center in Singapore. My yoga style focuses on combining asanas with deep breathing so as to facilitate holistic health. Depending on participants’ preferences, I also incorporate meditation and sound resonance to induce deep relaxation. For advanced participants, I provide variation for every asana to stretch them further.
I am also trained in designing yoga for children and families, and more recently I have been taking individual clients for Yoga Therapy. I have conducted movement education and yoga classes for young children.
I have also conducted a series of restorative yoga sessions for seniors. My Yoga Therapy sessions have been mainly for patients with knee injury, back injuries, arthritis and more recently nervous and psychosomatic disorders.I have also participated in an Ayurveda Foundation Course, and I try to practise integrated approach to holistic health and healing with my participants.
In my pursuit of on-going professional development as a yoga teacher, I also regularly attend advance asana and ‘stretch’ classes with Master Suresh at the Kalari Yoga in Singapore. The following is the link to Kalari Yoga’s website: http://yogakalari.info/.
