Julie Boyd came to the practice of yoga following her days as a competitive and nationally ranked top tennis player when she lost her vision to Stargardt's Disease, a rare genetic loss of vision. In 1995, while attending Arizona State University, Julie began her yoga experience. She found that synchronized breathing and movements allowed the impossible to become reality. She attended her first teacher training with At One Yoga. Her classes allow students to enjoy the beauty within themselves through deep breathing and powerful flowing sequences. Her class incorporates Julie's love of music, challenging vinyasa and pathways to deeper openings and freedom from boundaries.
Leslie began practicing yoga more than 12 years ago when she began looking for something to supplement her usual workouts. She discovered that yoga was a huge benefit to her, but wanted to share it with others. Yoga also helped reduce the risk of injury, increased Leslie's ability to maintain focus and provided techniques to remain calm when faced with stressful situations. She realized that there is a strong link between improved athletic performance and yoga, and as a result decided to make yoga-based performance improvement her focus. Leslie teaches yoga to teens and adults of all abilities and enjoys creating classes that are both empowering and educational.
Leslie is passionate about creating a positive yoga environment for teens as they find their balance in all aspects of life. She teaches Yoga for Teens every Tuesday and Thursday at 3:30 pm at Camelback Village.
