Julia Gilman is a graduate of the University of Virginia where she studied political science in preparation for a career in the nonprofit industry. Her yoga journey began that way it does for many: as a beginner in a class of strangers. During her first pregnancy, Julia fell in love with the supportive community that is created through regular practice and knew that yoga would be at the center of her life going forward.  

Although a Chicago native, she relocated to Louisville in 2013 and took a pause in a career as a nonprofit fundraiser to be at home with her son and complete her RYT 200 certification at Bright from the Heart Yoga in Crestwood.   

In every class, she seeks to create a welcoming environment where students of all experience levels can have fun, feel at ease, and get to know their own amazing bodies.
