Julee Snyder | E-RYT 500 | Julee was a teenager at the NC Governor’s School when her
flute teacher had her get into strange positions, like child’s pose, to learn how to breathe. It
was the first time anyone had demanded that she become conscious of her embodied self.
Her teacher introduced her to breath, posture, awareness and meditation techniques; and
she was hooked. Julee continued her embodiment explorations in college dance classes at
UNC-Greensboro and the Amsterdam School of the Arts. And in 1994, she found herself
in an intensive yoga series at Meredith College with Lisa Clark. Julee has been studying
and co-teaching with Lisa ever since, graduating from the first EmbodiYoga program
in 2004. She began to officially study Body-Mind Centering in 2000 and completed the
practitioner program in 2006.
Julee is an E-RYT 500 registered yoga teacher with Yoga Alliance, a licensed massage
therapist, a certified Pilates teacher, and a Body-Mind Centering™ Practitioner. She is a
professional member of the Yoga Alliance, Pilates Member Association, International
Somatic Movement Educator and Therapist Association, Associated Bodywork and
Massage Professionals, International Structural Integrators Association, and the International Yoga Therapists Association. Julee has worked as a bodywork professional in several clinical environments, including medical massage, chiropractic, acupuncture, and
osteopathic clinics, as well as at Duke Integrative Medicine. She spent a year at Western University College of Osteopathic Medicine before determining that it was the wrong path for her. And in 2014, she began her studies in Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy and
Visceral Manipulation. Julee currently has a small bodywork practice in Raleigh and is learning to play the cello.
“Yoga is about relationship. First to self and then to other, in all of the many manifestations of other. It is a deeply profound embodiment practice in which I again and again come home to myself. Each day I arrive into my practice and let it teach me something about who I am and how I engage in the world. It is a continuous evolution.”
