Julie is the co-owner and founder of Infinity Hot Yoga and holds a degree in sport and exercise sciences from the University of Ulster. After 10 years of practising hot yoga, she qualified as a Fierce Grace Hot Yoga instructor in 2015.
Julie has been involved in the sporting world in some form for most of her life. A former international 400m hurdler, Julie has worked as an elite performance coach across many sports including working with the south rugby academy team in New Zealand. When not teaching a yoga class, she can be found training athletes in her role as the elite performance coach with Armagh GAA.
After suffering an injury that ended her hurdling career, Julie experienced first-hand the healing, restorative power of hot yoga. A long-time fan of yoga, Julie found that the increased benefits of practising in a heated room helped her both physically and mentally through her recovery.
In 2016, she opened Infinity Hot Yoga with co-founder Bridget to bring the benefits of hot yoga to both new comers and experienced yogis.
As an instructor, Julie guides you safely through your hot yoga journey in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. Expertly combining her athletic ability and experience working with elite athletes, Julie blends traditional yoga with functional movement to develop challenging, rewarding and enjoyable sequences. She will encourage you to challenge yourself and truly connect with each posture, so that you can enjoy the wonderful benefits of this unique workout.
