Awakened Life Yoga was created in 2017 by Julie Hruska, MAEd., RYT500. In 2010, Julie had an awakening. She realized she'd been sleepwalking through her life, following a path that was not her own. From that moment on, Julie began to recreate her life. In 2013, her challenging journey led her to hot power yoga, where she found empowerment and inspiration. Feeling compelled to share her love for yoga with others, Julie completed her RYT 200 hour training in 2015 and her RYT 300 training in 2016. In 2016, Julie also left her salaried position as an educator to teach yoga full time. Awakened Life Yoga (ALY) was established in 2017. Julie's vision is to provide students with an uplifting environment conducive for life transformation. She believes group classes, special events, yoga retreats and private lessons are all part of the path for sharing her love for yoga with others. Awakened Life Yoga exists to help awaken, empower, and inspire people to become the best versions of themselves.
