About Me

Julie Tortora has taught Hatha Yoga, Antenatal Yoga and Postnatal Yoga for over 20 years

  • Teaching Diploma with The British Wheel of Yoga
  • Certificate of Education teaching qualification
  • Diploma in the teachings of Swami Gitananda
  • Pranayama Teaching Qualification with Phillip Xerri BWY
  • Foundation Diploma in the teachings of TKV Desikachar
  • She has also studied the Chakra system with Swami Nishchalananda at the Mandalayoga Ashram

Julie has gained expertise in a wide range of Yoga practices from many different schools, over the years, and seeks to apply them appropriately to her students’ personal needs.

The classes are friendly and informal and are held in a calm and comfortable home environment. The maximum number in a class is ten. This is small enough to allow the needs of the individual to be met but large enough to leave space for inner experience and reflection without intrusion. It is also a good size for forming a cohesive, inter-supportive group, which is an important feature of any good Yoga class.

QUALIFICATION DETAILS
Julie holds a general Certificate of Education teaching qualification in addition to her British Wheel of Yoga Teaching Diploma (the BWT is the governing body for Yoga in the UK). She also holds a Diploma in the teachings of Swami Gitananda including Yoga Therapies such as Head and Foot massage and has completed a rigorous Pranayama Training with Phillip Xerri. Her qualifications are officially recognised and she is fully insured.

Julie has gained expertise in a wide range of Yoga practices from many different schools over the years and seeks to apply them appropriately to her students' personal needs. She offers a variety of different classes for every stage of life. Her general approach is an holistic one where Yoga addresses every aspect of the person: physical, emotional and mental. As well as suitable physical postures, her classes include breathing exercises, relaxation and simple meditation techniques.

The classes are friendly and informal and are held in a calm and comfortable home environment. The maximum number in a class is ten. This is small enough to allow the the needs of the individual to be met but large enough to leave space for inner experience and reflection without intrusion. It is also a good size for forming a cohesive, supportive group and for students to get to know one another, which is especially important for new mothers-to-be.
