My first recorded interview

I was invited to teach yoga as a part of the Unleash Your Greatness Conference held at the Buffalo Canoe Club in Crystal Beach and this was my very first interview I had done.

She had sent me the questions ahead of time and I had written out all of my answers to make sure I covered everything and then couldn’t figure out how I could read the answers without everyone seeing my eyes move. I called Lori in a panic saying I was not ready and started having doubt as to whether I was good enough and maybe I shouldn’t be even teaching the class because I couldn’t do this right.

She said “Julie, why don’t you go and meditate and I will call you back in 20 minutes”, so I did and this interview was the result, she didn’t ask me one of those questions I studied. This pushed me through my comfort zone and taught me another scenario to practice the tools I teach people all the time.

I find when I am in the panic it is hard to find the tools and was happy to have the very advice I would give someone else, reflected back to me to practice in that moment.

How Self Love Can Help in your Mental Health Recovery

I started volunteering for the Canadian Mental Health Association to share my story to inspire others to look after themselves; body, mind and soul on all levels; physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically and spiritually, to also help remove the stigma of mental health, provide awareness of what mental health is and let people know about the resources that the Canadian Mental Health Association offers people for free in their area.  The Canadian Mental Health Association interviewed me and wrote an article that you can review here.
