My Experience

I have been practising yoga for 25 years and teaching for over a decade. My approach integrates the many different styles and aspects of yoga that I have studied, so that the most potent and beneficial elements of each can come together.  I am a fully certified yoga teacher of Iyengar, Yin, Well Women, Pregnancy and Post-Natal yoga. Within these styles I have extensively studied and taught postures, breath work, mantra and meditation. I also drawn on my own insights from my training in woman’s shamanism and energy work with kundalini; and my reiki masters and holy fire training in the lineage of Dr Mikao Usui.  I have taught in a range of yoga studios in London, Bath and Newcastle, as well as one-to-one classes, workshops and retreats. 

With a background in science and an honours degree in Biology I have a thirst for knowledge and evidence-based recommendations, which I fuse with the ancient wisdom of yoga.I have been practising Nutritional Therapist for 15 years, with a busy clinic and clients both in the UK and abroad. I have experience of running detox programmes, presenting nutrition workshops, calculating nutrient analysis reports and writing articles. I also work with The Optimum Health Clinic in London and The Nutrition Coach.  I am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council and a member of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy.

I am also a trained Doula having trained with the renowned Dr Michel Odent and Liliana Lammers and have a special interest in supporting women at home births. Myself a mother of two, who were delivered at home using the practices that I offer within Body Temenos.

Testimonials

What They Say

"I was fortunate to find Julia just over 2 years ago after a particular challenging period with my physical and mental health and wellbeing. Within a short period of time I realised I had found someone whom I could trust to work with me. Julia brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and a beautifully sensitive and empathic way of working with me. She takes a holistic view of  healing and has guided me steadily on my journey to wellbeing. She has always been accessible, responsive and caring in her approach. I am hugely grateful for her support which has made a very valuable contribution to life."  Norma

"By combining the latest research and diagnostic testing along with a practical, pragmatic and compassionate approach, Julia's help has been invaluable to me in my journey to recovery from ongoing fatigue."  Simon

"Julia Alderman was my therapist for over two years. From our very first telephone consultation, I knew that it would be both a very  beneficial and enjoyable journey for me and that I could fully trust Julia with my health problems. I had been looking for a holistic therapist with an approach which was flexible and non-rigid and which would take into account my lifestyle and situation, whilst addressing the root of some of my chronic health problems and symptoms. I found this, and much more, in Julia. I feel very fortunate and blessed to have had the privilege of being one of her clients." Jill

“I met Julia after looking for a therapist to help with my on-going fatigue, anxiety and digestion problems. Julia became my 'companion' on a 'journey' to full health. Julia brought to this journey a systematic diagnosis of where the issues were (down to a molecular level) and a structured approach to getting me back on track - through a combination of both nutritional supplements and dietary plan. She also offered me hope (that I would fully regain my health), patience and kindness, as well as guidance around other aspects of my lifestyle which would assist in achieving my goal...to get my life fully back! Words alone cannot express my deep and lasting gratitude for Julia's help and encouragement." David

“Julia is an amazing yoga teacher, I have worked with her over the years and feel she creates a calm, restful space, she intuitively knows what helps support me and my body. I feel I’m in safe hands with her and she helps me to get to know my body and spirit more. I would highly recommend her.”  Jennifer
