BREATHE AT YOUR OWN RHYTHM.

a 21-day supplemental online course
Dare to Begin Yoga in the Comfort of Your Own Home
Even if you've started before, you can be a born-again yoga virgin.
Because the reality for many yoga students is this:
- You're not sure where to start.
- You don't know what classes you could take at your fav studio
- Even when you do sit in a class, you feel a bit lost because the teacher is catering to the advanced students and not providing the in-depth cues you so desperately need.
Don't you wish there was some "Fundamentals" class you could take beforehand? Or in-between these "beginner-but-more-like-intermediate" studio sessions?
How about those once-in-awhile "Yoga 101" workshops? They're not frequent enough, and all those workshop fees are adding up, aren't they?
But, you don't have to be stressed out anymore! Get yourself the behind-the-scenes knowledge, accessible to you at anytime, forever-ever-ever!
You can learn each pose on your own time, get to know your body (and yourself) and feel way more confident the next time your studio teacher says the pose name in class.
Never feel lost again or worry about having to look up at what your teacher is demonstrating
A "Vinyasa" in the Western world denotes a sequence of poses that's used frequently in a typical Vinyasa class (that's why it's called a Vinyasa Yoga class!).
However, it's rarely described in full detail, nor is the teacher likely to stop and adjust your form for fear of holding the advanced students back. This doesn't protect your shoulders or help you engage the correct muscles needed to keep this sequence safe and effective. Done with incorrect form over and over, and you'll be prone to injury (I can speak from experience).
It can also get really frustrating to have to look up every time to see what your teacher is demonstrating.
Learn from the mistakes I've made and take all these golden nuggets for your added benefit.
How great would it be to start learning how to trust the way your body feels?
Come out of this 21-day course with comfort and confidence.
Take a look at a sample of what's included in your course!

Hear What Julie's Students Have to Say
"I've had Julie as a yoga instructor many times over the years!! I've taken several classes led by Julie that ranged from beach yoga classes to an out of town yoga retreat day. Which was a very zen and relaxing way to recharge from the busyness of life.
It didn't matter if it was candlelit yoga, a personal session or a Deep House experience - every single session left me happier, lighter and with a better sense of connection between me and my body. She has a specific calm energy about her that is magnetic.
She instructs and guides gently and without judgement; like a friend who's there to help you unwind a little. She also sneaks in humor which only makes the experience more enjoyable haha. I'm so grateful to know her and can't wait to follow her adventurous spirit and be instructed in various places around the world!"
- Carmen F, Motivational Speaker, Small Business Owner
" I found Julie (Rogue Yogi) via Instagram and felt an instant connection. Her gentle, practical tips improved my asanas in terms of form and comfort. I found her to be very interactive on-line with perceptive observations and a non-judgmental attitude. As a beginner, I was not intimidated by jargon or vague expressions and her knowledge of anatomy and body alignment seems solid. I also felt a connection based on her travels to countries I had recently visited. Thanks Julie!"
- Tony, Physician, Specialist in Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine
REMEMBER: Yoga can be a life-long practice. You might not start touching your toes, yet, nor practice a vinyasa without using your knees. But, it's not about achieving the posture. Really. It's the process of getting connected with your body, focusing the chatter in your mind, and becoming a better version of yourself. Touching your toes is more like the "icing on the cake"! So, be patient and refer back to this course as many times as you'd like. You have lifetime access to it, even with future content upgrades. The more you practice, the more levels of understanding you can reach.
Wait, Who's julie? what's a rogue yogi?
Hey, I'm Julie. I'm a digital nomad, a science geek and a rogue yogi. I'm going to help you practice yoga using layman's terms. I've been practicing for almost 10 years and teaching for almost 5. If you're tired of feeling the need to conform to what a yogi "needs to be", this is the place to be. No granola, no loud top 40 music, no holier-than-thou BS that happens when people treat yoga like a religion.
It took me awhile to learn the things I'm sharing with you now. I started off as a clumsy tech geek who couldn't touch my toes. Over this past decade, I observed tons of yoga studios, teachers and various yoga systems. All these lessons I share with you are nuances, anatomy/science knowledge with the right blend of spirituality and yet solid real-talk.
After meeting people all over the world and hearing first-hand about their frustrations with specific things missing from their yoga instruction and YouTube searching, I became clear on just how universal this problem was.
This course covers all those things I wish I knew when I first started yoga. I'm happy to share it in a comprehensive way that you can digest at your own pace and revisit as much as you want.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
What if I'm not flexible?
I promise you this isn't about being flexible. It definitely does feel good to become more flexible, but it's more of an added benefit of practicing.
This is just like saying "I can't go to the gym because I'm not ripped".
Imagine what it would be like if you started today. You would progress so much more than someone who never started at all.
Do I have to be Vegetarian to take this course?
F*ck no! In this Rogue Yogi School, you have the choice to live your life as you see fit. This includes dietary preferences, religion, fashion and more.
While some people experience their practice differently with eating just vegetables, and the yoga gurus in India say it is the path to yogic enlightenment, it just isn't a requirement.
Should you choose to be vegetarian, it's all good.
Should you choose not to be, it's still all good.
What if I'm too busy to practice for an hour?
Perfect! This course features lessons that would take around 10 minutes a day. Just 10 minutes! Fit it into your day the best that you can.
Consistency is much more key than length of practice in a day. Even if you just meditate for 10 minutes everyday, it will provide you a sustainable benefit.
How much will this course cost?
To stay true to the Rogue Yogi values of keeping Yoga accessible to everyone, this course will have 3 tiers of pricing options. Depending on how much you really feel you can afford, you can choose to pay $12, $21 or $30.
Do I get different versions of the course depending on which tier I decide to pay?
Nah. Regardless of what you feel you can pay, you will get the same course content as everyone else that paid for this course. Forever.
Why are you offering these different pricing levels?
We get that not everyone is in the same place financially. We also get that there are people who want to be able to pay more for this quality yoga content. This is your opportunity to pay what you can and what you feel the course is worth to you. Sliding scales once helped me out when I was struggling. I'm paying this love forward.
