We all have to get older, but we don't have to get old. I firmly believe that the bikram practice keeps us young in body and spirit. :-)

Julie Wallace, Bikram
After a year and a half of witnessing the power of yoga, Carly attended teacher training in Spring of 2011 in Los Angeles, California. She began teaching at the Flagstaff studio in June, 2011. She believes in the incredible healing benefits the yoga has to offer everyone. She is continually inspired by and is forever learning from her students. Carly has been a guest teacher in Bend, Oregon; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Gilbert, Arizona. She has also competed in the USA Yoga Regional Asana Championship in 2012 and 2014. She looks forward to seeing you in class very soon.
With almost 2,000 combined hours of training in Yoga, Pilates and Massage, Julia brings a wealth of knowledge to the hot room. Certified in Bikram Yoga since 2000, she loves to share this yoga with everyone. Her favorite classes have both 14 year olds and 70 years olds…all working hard together in a non-competitive environment to do the best they can for themselves. This yoga is great rehab for many different types of injuries and surgeries…it just needs to be approached with awareness, patience and teacher supervision. There are so many wonderful ways of working with the body and figuring out the best way to proceed.
We teach much more than yoga here. We help students get to really know themselves and their spines…the results are priceless. And we all leave feeling better.
When not teaching, Julia loves traveling and hiking with her husband John and their beloved dogs. They are often found dozing behind the desk- the dogs, not the husband. ;-) As an ex restaurateur, she also loves cooking with high quality organic foods. Oh, and she also begins everyday with great espresso.
My Bikram practice began in New Orleans, Louisiana in 2010. I began to practice without knowing or understanding what I was doing. I was unaware of the deep connection between my mind and body. What I did understand was that I struggled mercilessly with addiction, depression, and anxiety, and that each time I practiced Bikram Yoga, I felt better in every way. Slowly, and with commitment, I used my practice to overcome my struggles. I became strong, healthy, and able to maintain my commitment to wellness. In the fall of 2014 I traveled to Thailand for Teacher Training. It was a very difficult and magnificent experience that deepened my understanding of the practice, galvanized my will, and taught me how to bring the practice to others. I feel very blessed each and every time I practice and teach. Slowly, and with patience, my understanding of the human body and the human experience deepens. My relationship with myself, my loved ones and friends, and with God becomes more clear. This is why I practice and teach Bikram Yoga.
