Amazing time with Julie and our group in Bali!! Dare to be free retreat was informative, interactive, cultural, created and prompted social awareness and acceptance. Loved the resort, food, company, and easy atmosphere that Julie created for all of us. Would highly recommend!!! xoxox

Where do I start? Walk in, float out is the perfect description for the entire retreat. Julie is a gem, not only in her yoga practice, but as a human being -- very caring, very dedicated. You're better for knowing her. I think that what I loved most about the yoga portion of the retreat is that if you're fairly new to yoga, or just out of practice, she supports you 100% by tailoring all poses to you. Safety and comfort are a priority -- no injuries! :) But that is just scratching the surface of this retreat as a whole. She picked the perfect venue, with the perfect itinerary, the perfect food, the perfect vibe, and the perfect rewards. My two favorite moments were when we collectively gave back to the Balinese community through volunteering at an orphanage (those precious children!), and the Sunset Dance night. You hear people say to "dance like nobody's is watching", but to actually take those words literally and do just that -- so liberating! As for the actual resort, I already used the word, "perfect", and it was! My only complaint about my experience is that the time flew by -- a week is just not enough time to soak it all in. Suksma, Julie and Bali and The Floating Leaf Resort. I'm looking forward to more of Julie's retreats!
My trip to Santorini island with Julie, the Rogue Yogi, was nothing short of magical. The accommodation was really nice, we got to stay at these authentic Greek style "cave apartments". The weather in early October was still nice, not too hot, great for hikes and daily trips exploring the island. The scenery was breathtaking. I have never seen ocean this blue. I loved that Julie and her husband were with us the whole time. It was nice to have someone there who already knew the area and could point us to great restaurants, show us how to get to the beach, and recommend the best local convenience store. If you are a foodie you will not want to leave this place. The Greek Cuisine is absolutely to die for! What I appreciated the most was the daily program - there was not a day without something exciting happening! From a tour to Oia, to a bus trip to local ruins and archeological site, wine tasting trip, a cooking class at the local restaurant with chef Georgi, and the boat adventure and visit to a volcano and hot springs. I absolutely loved this trip and will definitely travel with Julie in the future again!
