Julienne-Schembri.jpg

Julienne is originally from Malta and has spent the last 10 years in London, first studying and then working as a professional dancer. Her love affair with yoga began in her final year of musical theatre training. Yoga became an avenue to move freely without the restraints and pressures that professional dance prescribes. Yoga facilitated opportunity to honestly arrive in the present and to honour to the physical limitations on the mat. In 2014, Julienne completed her 200hr YTT in Leeds with Its Yoga Association and then gained her Children’s Teaching Certificate with Yoga Bananas. More recently she has gained her Animal Flow Level 1 Certification, and completed a Master's in Contemporary Dance at The Place.

Due to her dance background, Julienne’s interest lies in the physical training of yoga, and continuously asks how can we, as practitioners access the spiritual through a physical practice?
