Julie is a qualified Reiki practitioner who enjoys expressing her creativity through painting. My Bikram yoga practice has enabled me to fully connect with my mind, body and soul, to appreciate the present moment by practicing stillness. We all lead busy lifestyles so itʼs vital to find healthy exercises that work best for ourselves, to strive for improvement, creating a balance to learn, to heal and to grow.

Loves: Simple acts of kindness, animals, art, meditation, music, yoga, travelling, nature, candles, photography, astronomy and cooking.
Dislike: Litter and dishonesty.
Most likely to dance: Iʼm not exceptionally great at dancing but I would give all genres a go, despite looking like a wobbly chicken.
