Julianne Rice Biography
Julianne Rice’s dedication to the health and well being of all people expresses itself most fully in her teaching of yoga. Now in her third decade of teaching yoga in the Bay Area, she is the manager and primary yoga instructor for the Center for Spiritual Enlightenment in San Jose, CA. She also teaches weekly classes at Yoga is Youthfulness in Mountain View, Blossom Birth in Palo Alto and Harmony Birth in Campbell.
Julianne teaches a style of Hatha Yoga that incorporates elements of Iyengar, Vinyasa Flow and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. Her experience as a professional dancer also informs her teaching style. She has been on the faculty of the Yoga Educational Seminars Yoga Teacher training program for 5 years. This training was founded and is directed by Joyce Anue.
She has recently produced a CD entitled Gentle Yoga for Every Body. This CD is a one hour spoken class with a poster of the poses included.
As well as teaching a regular weekly schedule of Hatha Yoga classes, Julianne also currently specializes in teaching yoga classes within the childbirth education network. For the past 8 years she has been teaching at Blossom Birth in Palo Alto and most recently at Harmony Birth in Campbell. Her Mom and Baby Yoga classes have become very popular and include elements of community building, creative play, song and dance. In the recent past, she has also offered pre-natal yoga, kids’ yoga, teens yoga and classes for the special needs populations.
Julianne was introduced to the philosophy and lifestyle practices of Yoga (in 1983) through the teachings of Paramahansa Yogananda. These teachings are referred to as Kriya Yoga. Shortly thereafter, she was initiated into the tradition of Kriya Yoga and began studying Hatha Yoga in depth. Hatha Yoga is yoked closely to Kriya Yoga. Hatha is known traditionally to be one of the best methods to clear the mind and balance the energy channels in preparation for meditation. The physical focus of the Hatha Yoga practices richly support the mental, spiritual focus of the Kriya Yoga meditation and lifestyle practices.
Her knowledge of yoga philosophy and practice as well as her personal commitment to her own spiritual, physical and creative growth have contributed to her long-standing reputation as a kind, knowledgeable and trusted instructor. Building upon her knowledge, she aspires to continue to bring alive the wisdom of the Eight Limbs of Yoga through Hatha Yoga classes. Her classes challenge and nourish the body and the mind simultaneously and inspire the opening of the heart.
Eager to maintain her enthusiasm, she continues to study yoga and dance extensively, teach workshops focused on the art of breathing, facilitate individual sessions and lead yoga retreats.
