A week escape to the kingdom of ornaments and colors to bask in the sun rays, surf endless peelers, meditate to the sound of surf, and skate perfect roads. We will settle in a corner so magic we almost wanted to keep it to ourselves in the beginning. But they say happiness is only real when shared, so we invite you to come along!
This trip is composed to be a rich, intense experience, where you definitely won't have time to check your phone and where the moments of rest will taste as sweet as honey. Especially, when rocking gently in a hammock overlooking the bay blazing with sunset colors!
Julia on her cornerstone principles of working:
Less is more and simplicity shapes the way I teach and the way I practice myself. The only thing required is your body and the curiosity to explore.
Unlearning is the base for moving with an open mind and a relaxed body. Deconstructing old patterns in a group setting creates space for new flows and allows you to see your body and mind in a completely different shade.
Every human is unique and deserves a customized practice, that targets their specific needs. In my classes I work with young children, students in their seventies, competitive athletes, parcours artists, fighters, surfers and climbers as well as with persons who suffer from an injury or want to lose weight and get more toned.
Movement is a human need and with every single class I try to create a safe space, that allows my students to find satisfaction and joy throughout free movement.
