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 3: BHAKTI (100hr)
  • Stage 3: BHAKTI, the path of surrender.
    In the final stage, we will establish a daily rigorous āsana and pranayama practice. The āsana focus will be on forward folding and seated postures, as well as inversions. The limb focus will be on Dharana and Dhyana. We'll be reading the entire Bhagavad Gita, which is an essential text to understanding the history of yogic practice and philosophy. There will be an introduction to the vibrational language of Sanskrit as a way to enrich our expression of the āsanas, understanding of the Sutras, and experience of mantras. By the end of this training, you will be able to read and write words and short phrases in Sanskrit. We'll be taking a closer look at the relationship between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems and how it relates to intelligently "closing out" our daily practice. Some time will be allotted to discuss "yoga as career" versus "yoga as dharma," as well as some practical ideas for making the former somewhat lucrative ;)
    *** For those interested in teaching certification, each stage will conclude with a practicum, including both a written exam and a teaching exam.

    Training cost per individual 100hr stage: $1,700

    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.
