Hello and Welcome...

I’m Julie Smerdon - a yoga and meditation teacher with a passion for practice that began when I nearly died. Now I have the privilege of sharing yoga’s healing power all over the world. My mission is to support yoga teachers and students in their desire to deepen their understanding of these life-changing practices through top quality education and a spirit of community.

    I love Julie’s refreshingly down to earth style, big heart and great humour! She is a rare teacher who’s incredible depth of knowledge and skill is matched by an uncanny ability to communicate and inspire, making even the most difficult concepts easy to understand. She will transform your practice and your teaching! Sarah Haigh
    My eyes and heart have been blown open by all that I've learned in this intensive program. The endless knowledge and effort that Julie puts into her program is phenomenal. Body mind and spirit are united in such a beautiful and delicate way. I would recommend this course to anyone who is passionate about yoga!" Menke Drenth
    Wise, soulful and down to earth, not only does Julie facilitate a course bursting with goodness, she creates authentic community. Yoga is connection… connection to self, of mind, body & soul, to others, to the Divine. The sense of community that Julie fosters provides a support network that as the course unfolds is invaluable. Julie rocks, the course rocks, and you’ll start connecting all kinds of dots you’d never even contemplated. Dive in. Kylie Walker
    I found the intensives with Julie at Shri Yoga after having done a range of formal yoga teacher training (600 hours+). I was immediately drawn to Julie’s passion as a teacher. I found the experience to be juicy and rich in all of the authentic teachings, philosophy and traditional texts as well as supporting the development of my physical practice, particularly my body’s ability to experience alignment and fullness of expression. Julie has a particular strength in seeing and developing the beauty and gifts of those she works with so this was for me as much a personal as professional journey Marissa Carlyon
    The most generous of heart and spirit teacher a person could wish for! Expect absolute authenticity, teachings that are willing to meet you as you shine and as you hide with your shadow selves. Deep gratitude, thank you, Julie. You know what for xo Alison Dale - Student
    Julie, thank you for deepening my love, respect and gratitude for yoga - there is no one like you, with your ability to make alignment and being open to Grace so accessible and achievable across all levels. Your classes and teaching are truly empowering. Josephine Macmillan - Student
    Julie has a unique way of combining her years of knowledge, expertise and wisdom with humour and kindness to make her yoga teacher training a fun, accessible and enlightening experience for anyone with a love of yoga! Alison Janes - Teacher Training

    I humbly acknowledge the Turrbal and Jaggera people, the traditional owners of this land that I have the privilege to work and play upon. I pay my deepest respect to their elders past, present and emerging, and offer my gratitude for their custodianship of this extraordinary part of the world. May we celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of the Elders of all indigenous communities who also work and live on this land.
