Julia’s Bio

I was always fascinated by yoga and it’s powerful physical and spiritual effect. I first started doing yoga in my late teens when I still lived in Russia. However, it was notuntil I came to the US in my early 20s that I discovering Svaroopa® Yoga. Initially what drew me in was the pain relief I experienced in my body. After 2 weeks of doing Svaroopa® Yoga twice a week my chronic low back pain was completely gone. There was something else though, beyond the physical that I started noticing. There was an inner peace , ease and openness I experienced on and off the yoga blankets. From that point on there was no looking back. I dove deeply into the study and practice of Svaroopa® Yoga. In 2007 I began my yoga teacher training through Master Yoga Foundation (now Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram www.svaroopa.org.) I have been passionate about teaching Svaroopa® Yoga ever since, facilitating my students’ own discoveries.


I have obtained the following certifications:

  • Certified Svaroopa® Yoga Basics Teacher (200 hours)
  • Certified Embodyment® Yoga Therapist (CEYT)

I am a member of the Svaroopa® Association of Teachers and Yoga Alliance National Yoga Teacher Registry – RYT 200.
