About Julie

Julie Wylie

Wylie_J ChosenMarket(A) 2013

is an earth spirit who guides with wit, love and precision. Directed to a Nia class by a grief counselor, Julie found immense stress relief using this “movement as medicine” discipline. For an introvert, low on self confidence, teaching her first Nia class was a miracle feat of enormous proportion, requiring both courage and determination. Recently asked: ‘What gift has Nia given you?’ Julie confidently replied: “Nia has given me my voice.” Through the wisdom of her therapeutic practice, spiritual seekers find Julie’s transparent group facilitation style a safe environment for rewarding journeys of transformation. Julie eagerly shares the discipline of Nia’s holistic workout and lifestyle practice that others may reap the benefits of their own tenacity and curiosity.

Creating a comfortable, safe space for individuals to find physical, mental and emotional health and healing through movement in her special events and experiential workshops are not to be missed!
