Longtime Portsmouth, NH resident, Julia Tirabassi has been teaching Yoga professionally for 13 years in the seacoast region of NH, as well as multiple locations in Maine and Massachusetts. As a former personal trainer, it was her passion for movement and an on-going fascination with the body's unlimited potential that led her to a full-time career as an independent Yoga teacher. She formed her own solo-preneur business, Lotus Groove Yoga, in 2006. In her work as a traveling teacher, Julia has offered classes, workshops, mentorship programs and teacher trainings in NH, ME, and MA. She is best known for her clarity, proficiency, and authenticity. A self-proclaimed yoga enthusiast, asana addict, alignment geek, and handstand fanatic, Julia infuses all of her teaching with an impassioned knowledge of sound bio-mechanical movement, applied anatomy, functional optimization, and an overall zest for playful asana adventures. Eternally true to her days as a fitness enthusiast, Julia's teaching style continues to include plenty of athleticism, but has evolved into a unique special blend of creative physicality, sweaty sweetness, mindful movement, and keen attention to deep detail. In each and every moment, Julia strives to share continuously fresh, contemporary, and creative ways to guide students towards manifesting their personal expression of empowered grace. It is her sincerest honor to serve the global spread of yoga's magnificence with ecstatic integrity.
