About me

Hi there, my name is Juliana and I specialise in therapeutic applications of yoga.

This approach offers you person centric therapeutic tools from movement, breath, mindful yoga and science for more balanced and sustainable everyday living - supporting your physical, medical, mental and emotional wellbeing without long talking analysis.

We work together in a safe, confidential and welcoming space - online or face-to-face - to support you to develop practical tools and step into your fuller self so that you can thrive in modern life.

These personalised practices can support you in areas such as:

  • confidence, motivation and goal setting
  • more sustainable energy levels
  • stress, burnout and chronic fatigue
  • overwhelm, anxiety and depression
  • back health and reducing back pain
  • muscular skeletal issues including RSI
  • pain management (chronic and acute)
  • sleep health recovery and insomnia
  • digestion issues including IBS
  • hormone balance
  • immune support including autoimmune conditions
  • cardiovascular health
  • cancer support
  • chronic headaches and migraines
  • grief support
  • female reproductive health from period irregularity and pain, conception, pregnancy, post-partum to menopause.

As well as working with you on specific mental, emotional and physical concerns, this therapeutic application can also help develop broader life supporting skills including greater self-attunement, self-responsiveness and improved nervous system regulation for better holistic health and greater everyday resilience and ease, improving self-agency and overall quality of life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been working with yoga's therapeutic tools since 2016.

I have received yoga and therapeutic yoga training from The British Wheel of Yoga, Yoga Alliance UK, The Independent Yoga Network and Yoga Campus where I was trained by experienced and renowned yoga therapists including Doug Keller (specialist in therapeutic applications of yoga and author of Yoga As Therapy), Dr Uma Dinsmore-Tuli (yoga therapist and author of many female centred practice books) and Dr Lisa Kaley-Isley (clinical psychologist, yoga teacher, International Associations of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) certified yoga therapist). My therapeutic yoga work is now being supervised by The Yoga Therapy Institute where I am currently completing their rigorous programme to also become IAYT accredited. I am insured (Yoga Alliance UK) and hold a valid First Aid certificate should this be required.

Yoga therapy differs from other forms of yoga because yoga therapy practitioners are trained to work with a wide range of mental and physical health conditions in a safe, biomedically informed, scientifically evidenced and trauma sensitive way (I have completed the 50-hour Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga (TCTSY) workshop with Trauma Sensitive Yoga Nederland which has provided an informed foundation).

Prior to yoga and somatic therapeutics, I working in the busy world of advertising and communications for 10 year so have first hand understanding of modern life/work balance, pressures and burnout.

Prior to my professional life, I completed a MA at Kings College London and BA at University College London, both in Social Sciences which underpinned by an interest in human behaviour, development and support.
