Yoga by Julia Aims to Show How Yoga Can Benefit your Daily Life in Unimaginable Ways

By Elisha Neubauer

In India, yoga is integrated into life. Many doctors prescribe it for wellbeing. The practice has been around for thousands of years, celebrated for its numerous health benefits.

It is no surprise that the practice spread across the US and other western countries. Modern society is searching for a healthier means of existence, and many have turned to yoga.

The benefits of yoga are many. Regular yoga practice can boost your immune system, lower blood pressure, improve insulin sensitivity, reduce inflammation, and improve balance. It strengthens muscles, bones, joints, and ligaments. It enhances hand-eye coordination and sports performance. It improves digestion and definitely helps manage stress. And these are just the physical aspects.

One of the key features of yoga is that it benefits not only the body, but also the mind. Studies show that including yoga in your life can reverse depression, increase daily productivity, improve focus, and create emotional stability. Practicing this ancient art allows you to process emotions in a healthy manner, learn self-acceptance, obtain a balanced life, and experience peace.

Julia Bowen learned these effects, first-hand. As Bowen entered her young twenties, she developed many health problems the doctors could not diagnose. In addition, Bowen found herself battling deep depression. Those factors, combined with her passionate spiritual pursuits, led her to explore the art of yoga.

She didn't know it was yoga when she found it. She just knew she'd learned to feel energy in her body and direct it to help her heal. When she finally took her first yoga class (years after her healing), her first thought was, "these are the principles I used to heal, packaged into a teachable system!" She'd been looking for a way to share her knowledge and help people heal.

"Perhaps that's why I'm more obsessed than most with understanding every nuance of yoga," she says. "Perhaps it's why I get insanely happy with each discovery. Because it is POWERFUL, and I've experienced that, intimately."

The intensity of her experiences, combined with the accessibility of the practice and most of all her compassion for others is what led her to open her studio. When she studies yoga, she always asks why, not just how. "I teach students to personalize their yoga. I want you to progress in a way that's safe for your body, that addresses postural habits, that trains your mind to focus with keen attention to detail," she explains. "I want your yoga lessons to transform your life as much as your body."

Bowen's friendly studio, Yoga by Julia, welcomes all ages, experience levels, and body types. The beautiful, calming space enhances the love and passion which Bowen pours into every student. The sense of community that Bowen and her staff projects makes you want to come back for more. "As much as we LOVE yoga, we love people even more," Bowen states. "You guys are why we are here!"
