Yoga & Meditation *


This class is taught by:

Julie Zafiratos

I began my yoga practice at about age 12 with my mom in the 70’s. We did yoga in our living room to Richard Hittleman’s Yoga for Health 2nd exercise album and I read Jess Stearn’s book “Yoga, Youth and Reincarnation.” I also studied yoga and dance at college in Boulder and San Francisco. I continued practicing on and off finding classes where I could until finding instructor Billy Gill at Urth Yoga Studio, where I completed a 21 day Parinama Transformation workshop and was introduced to Yoga Nidra. This experience deepened my practice and I began including meditation, which I had always struggled with. Arriving in Arroyo Grande in 2015, I was so grateful to receive my 200 hour training at Yoga Village to be able to introduce others to this wonderful practice.

Yoga has been a part of my life for the last 20 years, but never with the dedication that I developed when I joined Yoga Village. Maybe it was the combination of being at the right place, at the right time with the most excellent yoga instructors ever that planted a desire in me to go deeper into the experience. Whatever the reason, this desire led me into the 200 hour teacher training which became another amazing experience and created a deeper bond that grew within me for yoga. I love yoga for what it can do for me and anyone who opens themselves up to the Yoga Experience.
An all levels class for students who are ready to deepen their practice towards meditation or who like a slower flow with more attention to energy flow and alignment. Incorporating elements of somatics, breath work, qi gong, guided visualization or yoga nidra, we focus on mindfulness and intention bringing our practice from our mats into our lives.
