Julie Murphy

Julie discovered the joy of yoga in the 80s in South Africa. Many Oms later, she completed her 200-hour RYT certification at Radha Madhav Dham in Austin, Texas, and began teaching in 2007. Her 500-hour RYT certification took her to India for a deeper understanding of this ancient way of life. She relishes the yoga philosophy of how to live a happier and healthier life through movement, mindfulness, and meditation. Julie encourages awareness, curiosity, and acceptance on and off the yoga mat, and is particularly drawn to the guided relaxation practice of yoga Nidra.

Karen Pagano

Karen fell in love with yoga in her very first class over 25 years ago. Completing her 200-hour RYT certification from the Hatha Yoga Center of Seattle, Washington, as well as in Bali, prepared her to begin teaching in 2004. Most recently on Lake Atitlán, she completed training in Nada yoga, the yoga of sound and cacao. Karen shares her heart with students through joyous and creative instruction, and her love for yoga is infectious. Helping people to find their own yoga bliss is what makes her teacher's heart sing.

The retreat is a life-changer, hard to describe in words especially to an outsider but it calls for us to stop, see, feel and hear who we are and appreciate the environment around us. I give it a 10+. I enjoyed everyone also, bonding easily with like-minded people. You and Karen gave so much of yourselves. Thank you.
