Julie Nogueira, RYT

I’m the Co-Owner/Founder of Blue Lotus Yoga Studio in Annapolis, Maryland. We offer yoga for all levels, barre and sculpt classes. My consistent yoga practice helps me stay physically strong and, for the most part, mentally calm.

I can still recall the first yoga class I took at the age of 22 as an admittedly cocky dancer and former gymnast who was certain I’d quickly master the practice of yoga. Clearly I had a lot to learn! Not only was the practice far more challenging than I anticipated, I eventually learned that no one — regardless of how flexible, strong and determined they are — ever “masters” yoga. The nature of the practice is, after all, about the journey and not one’s ability to do a perfect split.

After more than a decade of practice, I received my 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training certification through Charm City Yoga and a Yin Yoga certification from TJ Maher of YUJMU.

Stop by Blue Lotus Yoga Studio for a yoga, barre or sculpt class. Our experienced teachers will help explore how integrating yoga and fitness into everyday life can lead to happier, healthier days on and off the mat.
