Natasha Julius began studying Iyengar yoga as a way to cross-train for the year-round Chicago floor hockey season. She soon traded in her sticks and shin pads for bolsters and blocks, delighted to find a practice that kept her physically and mentally challenged while significantly reducing her risk of being struck by flying objects.
Natasha completed a year-long apprenticeship with Patrina Dobish at the Yoga Circle prior to joining the staff in April, 2006. Teaching has added a deeper dimension to her personal practice and she tries to share her gratitude for this with her students. She approaches each class as she approaches most experiences; with an abundance of good will and humor.
When not practicing or teaching yoga, Natasha serves as features editor for The Beachwood Reporter, a Chicago-based media and cultural criticism website.
