Julie began her dance training in Ottawa, Canada where she trained in ballet, jazz and tap and received her Advanced certificate from the Royal Academy of Dancing. She then continued her dance studies in ballet and contemporary dance at the University of Missouri – Kansas City, where she received her B.F.A. in Dance (cum laude). Julie pursued her professional dance career in the United States, and England as well as working on cruise ships.
While in England she became certified as a Group Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer at Central Manchester College. Upon returning to Ottawa, Julie began her teacher training in the Stott Pilates method. She is a fully certified Stott Pilates Instructor, meaning she is trained in all of the Pilates apparatus as well as the mat work.
Julie is also certified in Total Barre™ and Zumba, and loves to be able to combine her passion for dance and fitness together in these classes. Julie has also been studying more about Fascia and its effect on our well being and movement patterns, and is certified in ZEN•GA™, and the Roll Model Method TM. Most recently she has also become certified as a Yin Yoga instructor.
Julie has been a presenter for various events, such as the 2013 Zoomer Show, the 2014 YMCA Connexions Conference, as well as her television appearances on Ottawa’s CTV Morning Live. She was thrilled to return to the Cruise Ship life while working as the Pilates Expert on the 'Lianne & Friends Awaken a Better You' wellness cruise that sailed the Danube River in October 2019.
Julie has grown a strong passion for Pilates and finds it thrilling to enable clients to develop a deeper level of body awareness and core strength while improving their overall health and lifestyle.
These video clips show you traditional Pilates exercises done on the equipment available in the studio, but also show you how you can adapt them to your own practice at home.
I was so thrilled to be part of an amazing team of experts that Lianne Laing handpicked for a Wellness Cruise like no other. In October of 2019, we set sail for a week long cruise along the Danube River, starting in Budapest and finishing in Vilshofen.
I had the wonderful experience of teaching Pilates and Fascia/Stretch classes in such beautiful settings, of exploring 5 countries I had never been to, of learning from the other amazing experts, and of growing friendships with not only our team of experts, but with fellow passengers. From all the workouts, to workshops on beauty, nutrition, relationships, meditation, essential oils, there was never a dull moment, and an experience I will cherish for a lifetime.
Below is a video of some of the highlights and memories.
