Julia McCabe


From Hong Kong to Vancouver, Julia has taught for almost fifteen years. Her school of yoga, established in 2010, has graduated hundreds of respected teachers globally. Her love of pedagogy began as she observed her parents, both school teachers. As well, her dichotomy for the arts and athletics began young while she lived and studied Kinesiology and Art History at McGill in Montreal - the arts/music are as important as athletics and health. Between teaching in Europe and Pure Yoga Asia, to skiing the BC mountains - this is the flavour you will experience in her teaching: Some days it's purely anatomy she will teach, while others it's about exploring your inner landscape with breath and creative movement. Teaching has been her outlet for expanding the inner alchemy of others, as she believes yoga is both spirit and science - a gift for our challenging times. Expect to be challenged, to inquire into comfort vs discomfort; to explore the nexus of breathwork (pranayama) within asana and meditation.
