​Juliana Lavell, CYA-E-RYT500
-Yoga Educator with the Canadian Yoga Alliance

-Ayurvedic Scholar/ Reiki Practitioner/ Intuitive Life Coach

-Aerial Yoga Training Director
-Acro-Yoga Teacher

From a young age Juliana was surrounded by yoga and alternative practices from her Mother,
a fire walking Kundalini practitioner. Growing up in Tsawwassen, BC, she was immersed in First

Nations study and culture. She naturally fell in love with the spirit if nature as she counted the

many eagles that lined the treetops by the ocean near her home.  Her innate affection and connection to the natural world carried her through many transitions in life.

Her curiosity led her to pursue education in Herbology, Ayurveda, Anthropology and Sociology. Her travels took her to many great teachers including first nations elders and shamans leading her to sacred ceremonies with Plant Medicine Iboga and Ayahuasca.

Her passion is to remove the dogma from yoga, she teaches equality and acceptance between all races and religions, understanding that there are many rivers that lead to the same great ocean. Diversity in practice, self study, human sovereignty and emperical wisdom are foundations of her teaching.

Juliana has hosted numerous Yoga Retreats internationally, many include Traditional Sweat Lodge or sacred ceremony with an elder. Her teaching style can be described as graceful, awake and transformational. She is passionate about sharing the technology of Pranayama and believes in maintaining an accessible practice that is safe for the long term health of the body. She is a licensed artist with Live Sankalpa and published writer (Canadian Yogi Magazine and Elephant Journal to name a few), musician and mantra singer.

She began her teaching journey in 2011 with Moksha Yoga International's 500 hour teacher training based on yoga-therapy and the maintenance of long term health of the joints.  Since then she has completed an athletic program for Yoga and has worked with professional athletes.

She traveled to Boulder, CO to attend the Boulder Circus Training Institute where she completed her Aerial Yoga Teacher Training with Aircat Aerial Yoga.

Her ongoing studies in Vinyasa Yoga, Meditation and extensive personal development inspired her to co-create Into the Mystic Yoga Teacher Training and Elevate Aerial Yoga Teacher Training

Ongoing education has continued to nurture her offerings as a teacher, attending and offering various workshops in Yoga Nidra, Advanced Yoga and Yoga for Alcohol and Drug recovery. She has worked with elderly people using chair yoga, gentle yoga for students in recovery and private sessions assisting in rehabilitation from injury or surgery.

“I am so honoured and proud to be part of the inaugural Into the Mystic Yoga Teacher Training. I truly believe it is going to be a community of ongoing support, love and self-discovery as more and more people take the training.
This training takes you beyond the asana practice and the Eight Limbs creating a sacred space that draws on many forms and traditions of spirituality. From Shamanism, yoga nidra, Kundalini, Archetypes, Tarot, Astrology, this training expanded one’s consciousness to really create space for self-discovery. Allowing you to ask yourself the big questions, of who you are, what is your purpose, what are your beliefs. Our group was truly amazing, we laughed, played, cried, sang and held space for the self-realizations that came to the surface, I will be forever grateful. 
Juliana has created a program that is their own authentic expression of Yoga that beautifully intertwines spirituality, anatomy, tradition and practice. An incredible human who was a pillar of love and support throughout a thoughtfully created program to challenge and expand oneself. She brought in different educators from life-coaches, to prenatal/kids yoga instructors, shamans, and Kundalini instructors creating a huge spectrum of learning and experiences. Posture labbing poses, going through different modifications, and the anatomy to ensure we have the knowledge to keep students physically safe during our classes created a confidence to teach the practice.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone, even if teaching yoga isn’t on their to do list. It is so much more than that and will set you on a path of self-discovery and self-love. I think this training is truly unique and a gift to anyone that takes it.”

​​“I will forever think of my life from now on divided into 2 parts. Before and after this yoga teacher training. I hardly feel like the same person I was before I began. I learned so much in 5 short months. I’m finding the experience very difficult to put into words. I think it’s because my experience can’t be described merely by words. It felt like so much more than that.

I recommend that every single person should take this training. I mean EVERYONE. Even if you don’t ‘do’ yoga. It’s so much more than that. It’s learning about yourself, stepping out of your comfort zone, diving into the mystic and exploring who you really are. In life and on your mat.

The teacher experience was exceptional. So many fun memories. So many adventures in meditation, kid’s yoga, shamanism, nidra, traditional yoga philosophy, anatomy, modifications, archetypes...the list goes on and on. So many exciting guest speakers and teachers. Unlike anything you could imagine.

I can’t say enough great thing about the facilitators. Juliana brings this mystical, feminine, artistic, and spiritual side to the teaching. Creating this perfect blend of yoga and spirituality. I can’t recommend this program enough.

I look forward to returning and continuing with the training when their 300 hour teacher training is offered. This community is so accepting and loving and I’m so so so happy and grateful to be a part of this yoga family.”
