Founder & Teacher
Wellbeing, Yin, LSD, Core, Restorative & Beach Yoga; Qi Gong, Pilates, Mindfulness Meditation,
Jules has over 18 years experience in the fitness and wellness industry and is a fully qualified Yoga teacher, Pilates instructor, Qi Gong Instructor, ChiBall instructor, Meditation/Mindfulness coach, personal trainer and facilitator of Local and International Wellbeing Retreats.
Jules has a passion for a holistic and balanced approach to health, fitness and overall wellbeing and believes that in order to achieve contentment and wellbeing we need balance in all aspects of our lives. Whilst moving to become stronger and fitter is important this needs to be balanced with time out to stretch so as to prevent injury and rest, relax and nurture the body, mind and soul through meditation and mindfulness practices.
She believes that what you are hard on wears out ... not just the physical demands we place on our body but add to this the psychological stress we are under as we try to multi-task, remain contactable 24/7 and feel the constant pressure to achieve and be there for everyone ... this results in a physical response that causes the body to release stress hormones.... ultimately leading to DISease in the body and mind.
Exercise and mindfulness programs like Yoga, Pilates, Qi Gong and Meditation are all great tools for unwinding, quietening the mind and releasing tension that help to switch off the stress response enabling us to live a more balanced and healthier life. We must first take care of ourselves so that we are better able to take care of others.
Jules’s Lifeforce Wellbeing Program is all about helping you to find this balance and learn the skills to help navigate your way through life’s challenges so that your life is more fulfilling and enjoyable and you can continue to do the things you love to do, injury free, pain free and as stress free as possible.

ASHA (OLYA RODERICK)
Teacher - Slow Flow Yoga
Asha's teachings focus on the individual expression of asana, breath guided movements, safe and smooth transitions and encourage an attitude of self-acceptance. Suitable for the beginner through to advanced yogis there are options and modifications for a more subtle or challenging approach. Asha says "When we hold our asana, fuel it with smooth deep breathing while the mind is focused on the present moment, this is YOGA. Our practice becomes steady and easeful and we bring this attitude into our daily life. I believe in oneness. Every practice of Yoga makes us kinder, stronger and more integrated and loving. When our vibrations of inner peace and joy spread like a ripple in the ocean of infinity, it benefits the whole world. Let's practice together".

Teacher - Power Yoga
"I discovered yoga at university as a means to increase strength, flexibility and fitness. I didn't think too much about its deeper value, I just loved the way it made me feel! Later, when I was practicing as a Nutritionist, I found the biggest hurdle I faced was overcoming clients' negative mindset and their ongoing self-sabotage. I knew they needed confidence and self-love in order to create lasting change and I knew I wasn't reaching them by prescribing simply what to eat. I learned that no one will treat their body the way I told them if they secretly believed they don't deserve it. For me, yoga teaches the value of our inner wisdom and helps me inspire balance, confidence, self-respect and body-awareness in others. The first change must come from within. Everything else will follow naturally."
