Too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who greive,
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who LOVE
Time is eternity"
Persia Juliet has never had a ‘normal’ occupation. A Certified Herbalist and Holistic Nutritionist, she was encouraged to find her passion. In the wet mists of Vancouver she found Hot Yoga, dropped six dress sizes and trained as a Bikram teacher. Persia then went on to further study with Nicole Walsh and Mark Breadner in Vinyasa yoga. Persia’s classes embody her love for music, story-telling and deeply expressed emotion. They reflect her training with Baron Baptiste, Les Leventhal, Ana Forrest and Sarah Powers. Creative and challenging, she believes that cultivating your practice in the good times will get you through the hard times.
What are your goals for 2016 and beyond?
My 2016 goals are to begin training in Cranial Sacral Therapy. I've loved teaching packed sweaty power classes but as the years go by I yearn to explore deeper and the space to be with people more intimately. I'm drawn to the premiss behind Cranial work in that there is nothing to fix...... all you need is to truly listen. I'm also drawn to people like yourself who are out there in the world making real their dreams and ideas. I'm working of a few collaborative projects to run 2 differing retreats in Sydney and Bali this coming year and also to be an active member in yoga charity events.
When was the last time you did something for the first time?
2 months ago I woke up at 3am to climb a volcano in my new white vans. I had no idea what I was in for. My trashed shoes, and smashed calves meant nothing in the light of the sun rising on a new day. Surfing is high on the list...... Sharks...... Surfing is still high on the list ;)
How would you describe your first yoga experience?
Awkward and Life enhancing. It was a Bikram class, I was rather over weight, without knowing it was heated I went in grey sweatpants and a baggy t-shirt. I laughed to release my discomfort and felt like a turkey being broiled. However the aftermath was life force coursing through my body. A sense of waking up for the first time. The world seemed "In Colour" and I went back the very next day.
Who has influenced you the most in your life?
Honestly my Mumma! She's an Activist, Artist, Lover and a Warrior. Being an only child with a single mum created a powerful bond between us. My mumma's moto has always been, " No problems, only Solutions!" I admire her for the ability of surviving all odds, her make it happen attitude, her passionate expression through art and activism.
If you had one super power, what would it be?
Teletransportation!!! Ah to teleport myself to Vancouver and have a cuppa with my mum. To pop up in L.A and watch my Dad rock out the Blue's on stage. To show up at a girlfriends house when their blue and give them that hug and shoulder instantaneously. It's all about " Connection" that's my #1 value and well I gotta work on my transcendence skills ;)
