COMMUNITY YOGA NEWS: Meet our newest instructor, Juliana Gomez!

Join us this Thursday, August 2, 2018 at 6:45pm in the library to welcome our newest instructor, Juliana Gomez!  Juliana will be instructing the Community Yoga classes every other Thursday.

Juliana discovered yoga after regularly attending a Buddhist center in New York, where she practiced meditation. She started attending yoga classes in Brooklyn. Her first class was pranayama for beginners. The focus on breathing showed her the way to relax her body, remove stress, and be happy. After that first class, she felt like a new person!  She fell in love with yoga and continued to learn more by attending different yoga studios throughout the city.

It became a dream of hers to someday go to India to have a genuine yoga experience and get certified as a teacher. Years later, she quit her job and bought a ticket to India and enrolled at Rishikesh Yogpeeth Ashram. At the foothills of the Himalayas, she learned yoga is more than asanas: it is about philosophy, history, energy, love, and ensuring the mind, body, and soul are all connected in harmony.

Juliana brings this universality to her classes. She wants her yoga to help other people find their own happiness and balance. She likes her classes to be fun and meaningful. Each class focuses on balancing the chakras so each asana comes from deep inside. Juliana has taught in India, Colombia, and New York before recently relocating to the seacoast area. She is a constant student of her surroundings, eager to learn more and gain knowledge and experience wherever she can.
