Julia Weltman has been practising yoga since 1990.

Speaking about yoga and herself:

"As a Teacher and as a student, yoga is the complete support for all physical and mental aspects of life. My daily practice varies with regard to what I'm doing, for example; teaching two or more classes a day, playing tennis, gym work etc. It usually includes chanting, pranayama and meditation. At least once a month I attend Masterclass for teachers and a chanting class too.

I have been fortunate enough to visit India seven times now and on two occasions we studied at the Mandiram in Chennai, which is a yoga centre founded for the teachings of Krishnamacharya. Krishnamacharya was a revered yoga master and was B.K.S. Iyengar's teacher, as well as teacher to Indra Devi and Patthabi Jois. Sadly he is no longer alive but his traditions live on through his son Sri T.K.V. Desikachar, his grandson Kausthub and his many dedicated students. My personal tutor and mentor is Gill Lloyd, whose personal tutor and mentor is T.K.V. Desikachar."
