A seasoned practitioner in nutrition, yoga and mindfulness
Hi, I’m Julie Wilcox, a wellness consultant, writer, teacher, and coach. I have spent my life exploring how to hone the body, mind, and spirit to become healthier, happier, balanced, and more productive. I believe in personalized solutions that speak to individual needs. We are all unique and deserve specialized attention.
As a child, I trained as a gymnast under Russian coaches – an intensive experience that taught me discipline and how to work incrementally to achieve mastery. But it was my deep study of yoga and nutrition that gave me insight into the importance of balancing all aspects of my nature and character, and, that allowed me to understand how to enhance my own well-being so I could help others do the same.
I grew up in New York City where I live with my teenage daughter. I am the first to reap the benefits of my holistic methodology, with resources of energy to enjoy running, tennis, skiing, hiking, and surfing, in addition to maintaining my daily yoga practice. A true foodie, I love to dine out to sample the talents of other chefs and cuisines, as well as develop my own healthy and delicious recipes at home. My lifestyle balances family and professional engagements harmoniously.
