June Student of the Month: Julie Merrill

Julie Merrill

Meet our June Student of the Month, Julie Merrill! Julie has been a dedicated student at Asheville Community Yoga for several years now.

In addition to honoring us with her devoted practice on the mat, she has been an equally dedicated karma yogi. Julie regularly volunteers to help with parking during busy times, and generously donated a collection of her gorgeous mixed metal jewelry for our monthly raffle this past February.  Check out her website to see some of Julie’s artistic creations

Here’s what Julie has to say about her practice:

“I began yoga many years ago when Asheville was small, at a friend’s apartment downtown. He would host donation yoga classes in his living room! I have had a loose practice for most of my life, but when a friend brought me to one of Michael’s warm classes, I was hooked. I find it has opened my life to incredible depth of healing and capacity to embrace of all that life has to offer. It consistently provides a safe and inspirational environment for witnessing the depth of my existence, my wounds, and my power. Yoga allows me to tap into the renewing freedom and infinite opportunity of every moment and every breath.”

Julie, you are beautiful inside and out, and a great example of a true yogini living your yoga on and off the mat! We are honored that you choose to practice with us, and grateful for all that you have done and continue to do to support Asheville Community Yoga.
