Teacher Training Team
Named as one of London’s top yoga and nutrition teachers, Julie is the founder and lead trainer of the Whole Self 200-Hour Teacher Training. Julie will be teaching a comprehensive curriculum which is not only grounded in the traditional teachings of yoga, but will also emphasize how to use these principles as tools to navigate modern life. As the lead trainer on the course, Julie will guide students through a range of topics including eastern/western philosophy, meditation, sequencing, nutrition and wellness.
Since qualifying in 2008 Vicky Fox has studied with world renowned teachers such as Rod Stryker, Doug Keller, Julie Gudmestad and Sally Kempton. She is registered with the yoga alliance as a Senior Yoga Teacher and teaches alignment based classes at Triyoga, The Power Yoga Company and The Life Centre. Vicky teaches the Anatomy in Asana section so that you can apply your anatomy knowledge to your yoga teaching. Understanding what the limitations are, how alignment can create a safe practice but also addressing injuries and how to adapt so that your classes are accessible to all.
Hannah first discovered yoga when moving to London to study Management and Business in 2015. Julie’s class was one of the first she attended and Whole Self’s ethos resonated strongly with her; helping her to find balance within the stresses of every day life. She has worked in the fitness and wellness industry for two years and has since joined Whole Self as Development Manager. Combining her passions for business and creativity; Hannah looks after our community, both present and future.
Mindfulness & Meditation
Both a Mindfulness and Yoga Teacher Trainer, Cathy-Mae is also an Ayurvedic Practitioner keen to acknowledge the roots and traditions from which these great teachings derive. Coming from South Africa, Cath is passionate about social justice and how we navigate the divided worlds of yoga and mindfulness in which ‘traditional’ communities of practice and marginalised groups are often ignored and overlooked. As a simple yet very powerful practice of nourishing our hearts and minds, mindfulness serves as a foundation for living life more fully. Through the study of mindfulness, Cath will take students on a journey that is anchored in cultivating kindness.
Busines Coach & Mentor
Since becoming a qualified yoga teacher in 2017, Angela realised that there was a lack of support for new yoga teachers post YTT. She found that the most challenging part of turning a passion like yoga into a career is knowing how to start and being aware of what to expect on the journey. As a mentor and business coach for Whole Self, she serves the soon to be yoga teachers and prepares them for life post YTT. She works with the students on ways to hustle, the business side of yoga, leveraging tech tools to build their brand and ways to maintain self care as a new yoga teacher.
Some of our guest teachers include:
Mona Lisa Godfrey, Katarina Rayburn, Natasha Kerry, Nicki Ratcliffe, Jonelle Lewis and Jasmine Hemsley.
When I rang Julie my father had just passed away and I wanted to do something different, unique and beyond my comfort zone to deepen my own yoga practice. I was very excited to join the yoga teacher training in 2019 as a special gift for me. I have done so much learning, training and studying but this was so very different – the variety of teachers, my fellow students and of course Julie’s energy, passion and expertise were truly phenomenal. I went on the training never intending to teach maybe integrate in my wellbeing and mental health work but I am now beyond excited to share it with the universe. A truly life changing experience. Thank you and deep gratitude to Julie, the team and of course the graduates of 2019.
The WholeSelf 200HR TT is one of the best things I have ever done. It is more than just learning the foundations of yoga and becoming a teacher. You learn so much about yourself, the person you want to be and are given the tools to help you become that person. It truly is a course about your whole self. You can see from day one the time, effort, energy and love that Julie has put into curating this course because it is so much more than just yoga teacher training. For anyone thinking about taking the leap, do it! You won’t regret it and if you are anything like me, you will wish that it never has to end.
