East Meets West Yoga Center

Julia Cho

Julia first lunged into yoga with the sole goal of strengthening her body. The mental clarity and discipline that followed suit was merely an accident, and an addictive one at that. Julia found herself demonstrating a new level of appreciation and resilience with each practice, embracing change and uniqueness that now translate into her everyday life. She practices everyday—on and off the mat, in-studio and out, in her asanas, and through her prana—inhaling gratitude, exhaling the apathy. From her personal journey, Julia hopes to continue exploring and sharing the boundaries of her compassion, understanding, and strength.

Julia is an E-RYT 200 with Yoga Alliance.  She practiced Baptiste Power Yoga for several years before working towards her certification.  Since then, she has come to embrace all different styles and traditions and is continuously enchanted by the vastness of yoga’s offerings. Her main practice nowadays is Ashtanga and Rocket yoga.  She has completed 100hrs of teacher training with David C. Kyle of Ashtanga Yoga Puerto Rico and is certified to teach The Rocket Yoga. She has also apprenticed under David Ingalls in the Ashtanga Mysore tradition and continues her practice under Maggie Lively of Ashtanga Nation. Julia considers herself to be a lifelong student of yoga first and foremost before she is a teacher but is always excited to share all that she knows in the present with the world.
