I was gifted a set of sandalwood mala beads by my yoga teacher Phyllis Campbell on her return from India when I was 11 years old. Years later I majored in Indian history at University, and have held a lifelong respect and interest in yoga and Hindu philosophy.
I became hooked on yoga after finding it’s therapeutic benefits – releasing tensions, refining my physical senses, and reacquainting myself with the nature of breath, by creating a space of calm in its relationship to the wisdom of my body.
I have continued to study yoga both in Australia and Bali. My Yoga Therapy Certificate and Level 2 accreditation with Byron Yoga Centre reflects my 500+ hours of yoga teacher training and teaching experience.
I offer my respect and gratitude to my teachers who I have been fortunate enough to attend workshops and train with: John Ogilvie, Maria Kirsten, Judy Krupp, Eve Grzybowski, Nicky Knoff, Donna Farhi, Dr Rishi Vivekananda, Dan Fanthorpe and Lorraine Rushton.
The meyoga – Newcastle approach to teaching yoga is simple: Be present in every breath. Stay anchored in your awareness.
My hope is that each student learns to live with integrity, to know themselves, and value life itself.

- “After experiencing several different yoga teachers and styles in the past, I would happily recommend Juliet's class to anyone in Newcastle. Her yogic knowledge and interest in us all as individuals will suit anyone; from those who think yoga may not be for them as they are as "flexible as a dry twig", to those who know yoga and would like to challenge themselves. A very enjoyable hour to look forward to.”Katrina Howell
- “After only two Purna Yoga classes with Juliet my neck and shoulder pain has reduced significantly, my calves have stopped cramping at night and I am feeling much more energetic. As a 50 year old male and health care practitioner I believe Purna Yoga will be an important and beneficial part of my future health regime. Having a knowledgeable and experienced teacher instructing us in such a friendly local environment is something I can highly recommend to my family, friends and clients.”Steve Dearing
