About this trip

Join me and a special group of people as we adventure into the heart of nature for a cleansing, nourishing weekend in community. 


Come home to your center—the place within you that remains steady amidst the chaos of daily living—in a weekend of fluid movement, breath work, and chanting to bolster your faith, deepen your awareness and amplify your love. 


Join me and the special group that always comes together perfectly for a soulful weekend of yoga, meditation, breath work and hiking —with plenty of space for rejuvenation, reflection, and connection with the natural world.


This will be my third Fall hosting a retreat in Tahoe. It's a glorious time to be here as the weather is still warm during the day and it always seems to come at the perfect time when we've been on go-mode from summertime for a while. 


The kinds of people that love this experience are open-minded, kind, generous of heart, and enjoy the support of community. This is an intimate retreat of just 15 people. And while we always stay in beautiful places, this year we've got a super deluxe spot right on the water.


I look forward to meeting you.

All are welcome.


Ps instruments are welcome! There will be song Saturday evening.


about rooms:

all rooms are california King beds. If you're coming on your own (most people do) we will pair you with someone of the same gender. 


about breathwork and yoga:

Breathwork is a powerful practice of breathing to music over a duration of time that brings us into an altered state where deep healing occurs.

The yoga offered this weekend will be slower, steady, strong practices to unravel tension, build strength and enjoy the sweetness of deep breathing. We will also have restorative practices before bed.


Retreat begins Friday @ 12pm! We’ll do a 1.5 - 2 hour hike that begins near Tahoe City, where the house is located. You’re welcome to join the hike, or arrive anytime Friday evening, but the earlier you arrive, the more time you will get on retreat!

I draw on the contemplative traditions of reiki, meditation, yoga, nutrition, positive psychology and integrative wellness to address the entire human experience - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I teach slow, strong and spirited vinyasa class. Classes are thoughtfully designed to the seasons and time of day. You can expect to chant, sweat, feel your heart come alive and learn new elements of yoga philosophy in each class. I also love teaching restorative yoga and yoga nidra in late afternoons and evenings on retreat.

One of the most transformative, rejuvenating vacations. Julie is a true gem, a wonderful instructor with a passion for yoga and a deep commitment to building community. She excellently communicated all pre-trip responsibilities (booking flights, scheduling airport pickups, booking excursions, etc) and made everyone feel so welcomed and loved upon arrival and throughout the retreat. This was my 3rd (!) yoga retreat with Julie and I definitely recommend her to anyone looking to explore or deepen their yoga practice. She is a joy, and it's always a treat to spend a week learning from her :)

I had a phenomenal experience at Julie's retreat. The attention to detail and execution were world class. From the meditation to the yoga, each session was guided and instructed with care and backed with a deep understanding of the practice. Julie helped me improve my yoga practice in particular and I'm grateful for the opportunity to have attended. Thank you Julie!

Julie is the best. If you don't like amazing food, incredible yoga/meditation, and rejuvenating hot springs, this isn't the trip for you! Highly recommend any retreat with Julie. You can expect great activities and great people.
This was genuinely an all encompassing amazing, inspiring yoga retreat. Julie and her team brought so much to the table ... literally ... not only were the yoga & meditation classes and daily optional activities so wonderful, the food prepared for us was perfect. I can't wait to make some of the recipes back home. The retreat location was divine as well. Pure "bliss". Thank you, Julie!
Julie puts on the most nourishing retreats you can imagine. She is super thoughtful and attentive to ensure everyone’s needs are met and values when a person prioritizes themselves to get the most out of a retreat. I went to Julie’s 1st retreat in Sonoma which she nailed but to see her growth since then is so enjoyable. She comes up with great ideas and structure during the retreat but it’s presented in a way that is not at all enforced. The food spread is delicious, imaginative, healthy and plentiful. I have been on 3 of Julie’s retreats and will continue to go in them.

Since returning from Kauai, I have felt a sense of retreat throughout my days. Peace and serenity weave through my day, easing the stress from work and everyday tasks. I am motivated and inspired to continue what I have learned on the retreat and bring it into my daily life. This retreat showed me what it was like to take care of myself and ultimately how that will help me to take care of those around me. From eating healthy meals, to practicing yoga regularly, to calming my mind and practicing kind observations. A huge thank you to Julie for her care and support during the retreat. It was a treat being able to spend this time with her guiding our group. She was prepared and had lots of information and goodies to share, yet was flexible and open to changing the itinerary based on the needs of the group and the weather. Her knowledge of yoga, the island, cooking, and many other great things kept us inspired and in awe. I would recommend a retreat with Julie to anyone with a curious mind, an open heart, and anyone who wants to truly relax and retreat in a healthy and rejuvenating way.

Julie’s yoga retreat in Kauai was absolutely magical. It was obvious she put her heart and soul into every aspect of the trip from bringing together an amazing group of women to cooking delicious meals to leading us on transformative adventures. Experiencing the infectious passion and energy of her yoga classes daily was a powerful force throughout the trip. The memories from our time in Kauai will stay with me forever!

I couldn’t rave about Julie’s retreats enough. She is the perfect planner and takes all of the hassle out of trip organization and travel with her retreats. From morning practice to meal planning to daily adventures, the February 2018 Kauai retreat went beyond my wildest expectations. Her yoga sessions are the best mix of relaxation and strength. You’ll come away feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and in a state of bliss.
