Who is Julie Blayney?
After over 30 years of working in a very challenging corporate environment, yoga changed her approach to viewing the world, and she made a conscious decision to change, and began on a path of prioritising what was actually really important in her life. The result was the closing of one chapter and the opening of another, shifting from business suits to yoga pants!
The new chapter which started in 2014 is still open and ongoing and has led her on a path of all-embracing self-discovery. This path has incorporated many trainings including, Ashtanga yoga, Forrest yoga foundation and advanced trainings, numerous continuous development training, mentorship training, children’s yoga training, and she has discovered a special talent for encouraging and supporting children with special and developmental needs. Personal and professional growth has also included Reiki training and led her to appreciate the benefits of engaging in shamanic mediation. Julie has assisted on a number of advanced and mentorship Forrest yoga programmes with Forrest yoga guardians and was selected to assist Ana Forrest whilst she was in the England and Scotland.
Through her own personal challenges and ultimate growth, Julie recognises that the way people approach life, is the way they show up on their yoga mat, she also believes that this can be changed by the creation of a space that feels safe, nurturing and supportive. She recognises the need for people to work at their own pace on balancing their energy by engaging in an asana practice that promotes self-awareness and a willingness to go deeper.
