Yulia Veprinsky, RYS 200Therapeutic Yoga Instructor
Yulia first came to the yoga mat on her birthday in 2010. A coworker invited yulia to join a beginner outdoor yoga class near the lake. It was one of the best gifts yulia could have received on her birthday. The combination of yoga postures, sun and water were very exciting and peaceful simultaneously. When she left class, she felt rejuvenated and blissful. Since that day, yulia has practiced yoga throughout the years. It was a way to relax and reduce stress. Over the years, she developed a passion for yoga as a student. Yoga always made yulia feel happy, calm and energized.
