“The practice of yoga helps us experience inherent union, and building it into your wedding can help you return the focus to the deep meaning of your union, rather than the externals of wedding planning or anything else.”
~ Julia Mannes

Her down-to-earth lessons emphasize alignment, curiosity, and creativity. She believes yoga can help us look beyond externals to find what we seek in life from the inside out. She is quite comfortable teaching at both secular and religious events, and has experience weaving Jewish themes into her classes. She is particularly adept at helping students recognize the symbols of support and love they already find familiar, and weaving them into a theme for their wedding.
