ENJOY THIS EPISODE:
Julie started her journey to a Yoga instructor in 2007 when she was training for the Marine Corp Marathon. Julie noticed that when she was practicing Yoga that her recovery, flexibility, and overall training was improved. She felt that she could help others better their physical and mental well-being through Yoga.
Julie is a bundle of energy who brings to her instruction years as an elementary school teacher and combines her love of Yoga to have incredible classes for her students.
Not only is Julie an amazing professional Yoga instructor, but more important she is an incredible mother to 3 children, 2 girls and the youngest a boy.
After years of travel, Julie and her family have settled in Frederick and have grown their roots having become pillars of the local community over the last 15 years.

From Julie Melton’s website:
I love to be active! I trained for and completed the Marine Corps Marathon in 2008 and added yoga to my weekly training regimen as a safeguard against injury. I ran the marathon injury free (10:27 mile pace!) and in the process fell in love with yoga as taught to me by Maria Garre. Injuries crept in as I pushed yoga to the side to make room for a new accomplishment, triathlon training. I completed the IronGirl Tri the year I turned 40–2010. And I ended up struggling for the next 12 months with a severe repetitive use injury to my achilles tendon. And that’s when I decided to pursue a lifelong method of movement by studying Prana Flow® Vinyasa. I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2011 and immediately began studies for Prana Flow® 500 hour certification with my teachers including Maria Garre, Shiva Rea, Andrew McAuley and others.
I teach yoga because the elemental connection to breath and movement is available to everyone and more transformative than a 3 hour run. Energetically coaching my students toward the art of yoga–union of breath and movement–is my passion. Every individual deserves to connect to his or her truest self through moving in the foundational flow of breath. Yoga is the instant flow, synchronicity, expression of heart, mind, body connected.
5 Benefits of Yoga:
1- Improves your flexibility and mobility.

3- Better Balance.
4- Increased Self-esteem.
5- Teaches you how not to panic and yoga also reduces stress.
