Tutor: Julie Hand
With a background in fitness and dance and a Reiki II practitioner, Julie’s focus is on the therapeutic aspects of conscious movement and breath to promote health, well-being and peace of mind.
Qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga and teaching since 2003, she has since spent time studying the principles of Tibetan Yoga and works to incorporate the philosophy of Kum Nye Tibetan Healing Movement into the practice. Julie has focussed her yoga sharing on breath awareness and using it as a tool for improved well-being, relaxation and calming of the nervous system – often working on a one-to-one basis with people suffering with stress and its associated symptoms.
Julie’s teaching style is breath-led, incorporating flow and rhythm, to impart a sense of ‘being’ in one’s body. Finding her way to the Parkinson’s Dance Science Model in 2016 was a complete joy.
