Edmonton : Whyte Ave

Julie Garcia


Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil under my grandparents love is where I spent the majority of my childhood. Eventually, I followed my mother and siblings to Canada for the biggest life change one could imagine, and here I am.

Like many, my initial interest in Yoga was more of a physical one, but it wasn't long at all until I noticed how nourishing and alleviating it was for my mind and soul as well.

After trying many different types of yoga, I found myself back in my home land Brazil training with David Lee Lurey, and it was where I got my first taste of Acro Yoga. In that moment I knew right then, which road was made for me. Shortly after receiving my 200hr YTT in Vinyasa, I returned back to Canada to continue my yoga journey.

After years of immersion and training with some of the most inspiring people I have met to date, in August 2012 I became the 2nd AcroYoga SF certified teacher in Canada.

I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to teach and introduce the practice of AcroYoga to many, not only in Edmonton, but in all my world travels. I am so privileged to have studied and trained under Jenny and Jason of AcroYoga San Francisco and so lucky to have met many other amazing individuals who not only have taught me yoga, but the true definition of inspiration.

I'm astonished of how much yoga has yet has to teach me and extremely grateful everyday for my students which give me the opportunity to share it with. We are all learning together.

People who feel superb about themselves generate superb results, and I want to help generate that, even if it's flying one by one.
