Hello, I’m Julie Tran and I am your local Rogue Yogi.
I believe in yoga without the dogma.
I have been leading international retreats for the past 5 years, teaching an evolution of yoga asana for the past 7 and being a student for the past 15.
I founded the Rogue Yogi Life in 2012 from personal experiences and a wide range of education. I’ve studied with various experts in the fields of Yoga, Feldenkrais, Somatics, Pilates, Qi-Gong, Tai Chi, Chiropractic, Physical Therapy and Massage Therapy.
With my husband and two kitties, we have been traveling around the world. This experience gave me the opportunity to learn a plethora of wellness modalities, meet several forward-thinking wellness educators and lead retreats along the way.
I started by teaching in a warehouse located in Los Angeles, then moved onto several studios in San Francisco. Many of these studios were focused on the aesthetics of the postures, the auto-pilot choreography vibe and generic cue-ing devoid of anatomy-based wisdom.
What about the folks whose unique bone and tissue structures would never allow them to “achieve” those poses? Why wouldn’t we as teachers provide a legitimately safe and inclusive space for all body types, spiritual beliefs and dietary preferences to practice feeling from the inside-out?
The power should not be in the hands of the teacher. We are better as guides in partnership with you to re-discover your answers from within.
This is why I founded Rogue Yogi…
