Julee Snyder first encountered yoga in 1989 when her flute teacher had her get into child’s pose to feel her breath. It was the first time anyone had asked her to be aware of her embodied self. It planted a seed that eventually led Julee to take up dance in 1992 and yoga in 1994. She was hooked and it began a lifelong love of the body, yoga and body-mind practices known as somatics. Julee now has a private bodywork practice and teaches yoga and pilates at Evolve Movement. She is well versed in several bodywork modalities including medical massage, visceral manipulation, craniosacral therapy and Body-Mind Centering™. She has worked in clinical and studio environments — including Duke Integrative Medicine — which inspired her to go to medical school. She attended one year at Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine in southern California before returning to Raleigh and re-devoting herself to bodywork and yoga therapeutics. She is considered a master teacher of EmbodiYoga™, Restorative Yoga, and Embodied Yoga Anatomy. As such, she is on faculty for several local yoga teacher training programss as well as the Body-Mind Centering™ and Yoga Training in Dallas, TX.
