Julia Eda Shemesh has studied deeply with Yoga, dance, meditation, movement therapy, and integral anatomy for over twenty years. After teaching various forms of āsana (vinyāsa, 26+2, hatha) and thousands of hours of yoga teacher training programs, she was lucky enough to find the Mysore style Aṣṭāṅga Yoga practice. Since 2014, she has sustained a daily practice and has gratefully studied with her beloved teachers, Maia Heiss and Noah Williams in Los Angeles. In 2017 and 2019, she traveled to Mysore to study with Sharath Jois, Arvind Pare, Lakshmisha Bhat, Dr. Jayashree and Prof. Narasimhan. She is devoted to making a regular return to Mysore for ongoing study. In early 2020, Julia founded the Yalla Yoga school, which operates mostly online, and offers retreats and teacher trainings in-person. She lives in Tel Aviv with her husband and daughter and is grateful to have found Yoga Levontin.
