Teacher Feature: Julie Kameisha

Structural – Simple – Steady

I teach an alignment-focused vinyasa class that moves slowly, yet is challenging at times, and yin that is quiet, contemplative, and structurally sound. To me, the physical practice of yoga is a way to access and explore the inner world of the mind and spirit.

You can practice under Julie’s guidance on Monday afternoons from 4-5:15 for a slow paced, steady and intelligently sequenced Vinyasa, as well as catch her when she covers classes for other teachers. Read on to learn a little more about Julie . . .

My first exposure to yoga was at twelve years old when I picked up a book at a school book fair titled “Um, Like… OM: A Girl Goddess’s Guide to Yoga,” by Evan Cooper. I have been practicing ever since. Yoga introduced me to the deeper parts of myself – the more empathetic, mindful, and kind version of me. I teach because I want to share this exploration of self with others.

In my classes I strive to give precise and specific physical instruction woven into a creative, yet intentional, feel-good flow. I completed my 200-hour teacher training with Boston Yoga School under the tutelage of Ame Wren and Tiffany Cagwin. I am influenced by the teachings of Ame and Tiffany, as well as Brenna Matthews, Jason Crandell, and Kevin Courtney. Most recently, I have taken a deep dive into the practice and theory of yin yoga, also known as the “other half” of yoga, through study with Josh Summers.  

I recently moved back to Maine after spending the past few years in Upstate New York, and I am so grateful to call this state home again. While not at the studio, you can find me doing CrossFit, reading, or pursuing my quest to find the best brunch spot in southern Maine. I look forward to practicing with and learning from the FYC community.
