about the founder

Hi! I’m Juli!

There was something missing from my life and I didn’t know it, until I found it on my yoga mat. I found me.

Like many people, my journey to yoga began with the search of a physical benefit. I arrived to class with the intention of stretching my muscles after experiencing a running injury at mile 15 of my first marathon.

What I discovered was so much more. Every ounce of my being was stretched. Yoga helped me break away from the stories and judgments that I placed on myself, and connect more deeply with my mind, body, and spirit.

My daily practice of meditation, journaling, and asana (postures) practice has transformed my life. I thought it was cool to be able to do 100 things at the same time, but what I’ve realized through yoga is that being mindful and present makes me more efficient, effective and grateful in everything I do. Today, my yoga practice is more than a good workout – it’s how I live.

I had a transformative moment on my mat when I realized I could take all of my corporate career experience and combine it with my love for yoga to serve everyone in my community. That led me to opening Mindful Elephant. Blending my business skills with my passion for yoga has opened my heart in new ways. I’ve found my dharma.

I’m a certified Kripalu yoga teacher. This style of yoga typically isn’t found in many Philadelphia studios, and I’m excited to bring this practice to the Philly community. Kripalu means being compassionate and the practice invites you to love and nurture your body.  

I believe yoga is about so much more than just the physical practice. My vision for Mindful Elephant Yoga is to provide every individual that walks through our door with an inspirational space and an empowering experience.

On our mats, we can tune in to our minds, our emotions and our spirit in new ways. We learn more about ourselves every time we practice yoga. And we can take these moments with us after we leave the studio. I call these #OffTheMatMoments and I’m excited for you to find your moments at Mindful Elephant.

Interested in Corporate Yoga? I combine the best of both worlds to bring joy and peace to the work environment. I’m happy to customize a one-day or series of sessions for you and your team. If you would like to know more about my corporate world, you can visit my website at www.whateversolutions.co , or just ask.

Feel free to email or call me anytime and for any reason. I would love to hear from you.

May you be happy.
May you be healthy.
Peace. Peace. Peace.

Jai Bhagwan!
