Julie Mitchell is now based in Tahoe City since the fire in Lahaina Maui on 8/8/23 where she was a partner owning Island Spirit Yoga Studio which was established 2005. She has been studying Yoga since 1991. For the past 22 years, she has been guiding Yoga classes, workshops and retreats all around the world. Borrowing from her original "practice" belly-dancing, Julie teaches vinyasa as a flowing dance--fun, creative, and intuitive-guiding students on their journey inward through a fluid blend of pranayama, asana, dhyaha, creative visualization and aromatherapy. A licensed massage therapist schooled in anatomy, Julie is able to adjust students safely into poses both gentle and deep. In 2007, her yogic journey brought her to AcroYoga, which blends the spiritual wisdom of Yoga , the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of Thai massage. Through this dynamic and interactive practice, Julie strives to foster the qualities of communication, trust, playfulness and strength.
