Thoughts on Mukti

I have had the good fortune to work with many many yoga teachers throughout the years but Julie Rader is by far my favorite. Julie has a beautiful sweet disposition. She is a scholar of Yoga and if it is desired will gracefully and effortlessly educate about the yogic positions and principles throughout the sessions. She would move me through a slower de-stressing practice when I was feeling overwhelmed in my life- always bringing me back to my breathing. After those sessions I would feel like an anvil had been lifted from my back .When I needed more energy she would bring me through a more invigorating and energizing practice. Leaving me feeling ready to take on the next tasks.

Julie is a balanced and sweet person and I think this is important when you are working with someone closely and spiritually. Her meditations are powerful and deep. I couldn’t recommend her more highly to anyone. Julie is a healer and an angel.

With gratitude, Patricia Arquette

I had been teaching and practicing yoga for over 16 years when I first took Julie Rader’s class, and to be honest, I had lost my love of yoga. After just one class I felt inspired again and continued to attend her classes and seek out her understudies around town. Not only Julie, but all of the Mukti School graduates have a deep knowledge of the body and the yoga practice, along with gentle loving spirits. Practicing under the Mukti School has strengthened my physical yoga practice and taught me balance with every day life.

I couldn’t wait to start my first training under the Mukti School. I was blessed to be in the Pre & Post Natal program and it was life changing. Julie and Chelsey are so knowledgable. I’ve had pre & post natal trainings previously, but they didn’t touch on one percent of what the Mukti School Training covered. Their life experience was priceless in creating this program and answering all of our questions. My clients feel safe and prepared for the different stages of pregnancy, delivery and post-pregnancy recovery because the training I received through the Mukti School. Can’t wait to take the meditation training!
