Alex a yoga class newbie
“I find Julie’s workshops nourishing and enjoyable every time. It begins for me with the drive from London which takes me through gorgeous countryside arriving at the Yoga Hub to a warm welcome with a cup of coffee, homemade biscuits and the joy of seeing old friends and meeting new.
Julie seamlessly weaves the theme of the workshop together with what we each need. I leave feeling re-fueled, relaxed and looking forward to the next one!”

Such a great day on Saturday. It was a very enjoyable yoga session and I have really taken away lots of your tips and I am getting so much more out of 'down dog' pose - first time someone has actually taught me how to get into that position properly!
Your food was sooooo delicious - loved it all.
The day felt like a real treat so thanks again and hope to see you again soon
