Julia P-T

Julia Planine-Troiani explores various forms of movement practice including Yoga, Pilates, dance, Thai Massage, Gaga, Butoh, and has been teaching her discoveries for seven years. She is particularly grateful to Lindsay Dombrowski (Yoga to the People) for her intention, ferocity and love. She is committed to holding space for people to realize their own inspirational power, agency and beauty. Yoga, like any practice, is holistic. She hopes to illuminate and encourage self-awareness through a highly physical, sensation-based experience as a means towards self-discovery that necessarily pours off the mat into "daily life". She is looking forward to sharing time and space with you and doing the good work! (ate9dancecompany.com)

Julia P-T instructs the following:
  • Power Yoga
  • A Vinyasa-style dynamic flow class, Hot Power Yoga uses breath as the primary link between attentiveness and integration of the mind and body. Hot Power Yoga is an intense practice that will flow you through strengthening postures throughout the entire class. This practice is meant to detoxify the body and burn calories through movement, breath, and heat. Designed for intermediate to advanced levels. Heated to 105-109 degrees.

  • 300hr-Stage 2: JNANA (100hr)
  • Stage 2: JNANA, the path of knowledge.
    in the second stage, we will establish a daily rigorous āsana and pranayama practice. The āsana focus will be on backbending and twisting postures. The limb focus will be on Pranayama and Pratyahara. We'll be reading the first two padas (chapters) of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and learn to chant the first twelve sutras in Samadhi Pada by heart. This will lead us into a introduction to the benefits of including Mantra in our practice. We will dive deeper into the yogic anatomy systems of Chakras and Nadis, which will begin our work with the Maha Bandhas: Mula, Uddiyana and Jalandhara. We will also have an introduction and strong focus on Ayurveda, the sister science of yoga. We'll see how an Ayurvedic approach to diet, lifestyle and self-care supports our practice.
    *** For those interested in teaching certification, each stage will conclude with a practicum, including both a written exam and a teaching exam.

    This is a 300-hr program that will look at the advanced layers of the yoga practice. It is divided into three stages: Karma, Jnana, and Bhakti. While the stages are designed to be experienced together, they are each built to stand alone. We will establish a daily, rigorous āsana and pranayama practice and explore the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, and, of course, The Bhagavad Gita.

  • Hot Yoga
  • This 90 minute class includes a set sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. Hot Yoga begins with pranayama deep breathing to oxygenate and energize the body. The Hot Yoga series will systematically massage and stimulate every muscle, gland, and organ. Each posture prepares the body for the next, allowing students to gain strength, flexibility, and balance. Hot Yoga is an excellent foundation for learning proper alignment and developing the concentration needed for meditation. Heated to 105-110 degrees.
