Julie Rader

Yoga Philosophy

My purpose in life to spread peace. The more at peace I remain the further out it radiates from my being. I am here on earth to teach others to find a deep inner peace.

By establishing a deep internal practice we have the capacity to tap into our subconscious and daydream our life into being.

To be truly balanced, Root your feet to the earth and allow your head to float in the clouds.


Julie Rader has been teaching yoga and meditation for two decades. Her mother taught her the power of meditation when she was a teenager, which is the foundation all of her teachings. She has dedicated her life to studying and understanding the power of the mind through meditation. Julie studied Kriya Yoga under Swami Janakandana and spent 33 days without talking reading or writing. The time in silence was profound and expanded her mind and intuition. She continued her study of Meditation and Pranayama in India at the Bihar School of Yoga.

Julie’s yoga practices are influenced by her teachers Shakti Mhi, Swami Janakananda, Shiva Rea, Sianna Sherman and Swami Satyananda. Julie’s yoga classes combine solid alignment with an intuitive teaching method that weaves the ancient wisdom of yoga into everyday life. Her classes allow students to tap into their highest potential through breath, body movement and stillness. Her intuitive, creative and specific sequencing focuses on matching asana and intention with lunar cycles, seasons, and astrology. Julie’s classes have been described as “sneaky” because students reach a deep meditative state in the flow but often wake up sore the next day.

With a Master Degree in exercise physiology and a Bachelor in Psychology Julie helps students marry the spiritual aspects of the practice with solid anatomical principles. In addition to her public classes, she is also a passionate teacher of elite athletes, including the US National teams for volleyball, soccer, and cycling.

Julie founded Mukti Yoga School in 2004 and has certified many of the popular teachers in the Los Angeles area and hundreds of teachers worldwide. She has taught over 30,000 hours of yoga to teacher trainees, athletes, corporations, and students.

Her favorite role in life is being a mother to her little yogis, Samson and Olina. Julie is in awe of how much her children teach her about mindfulness every day.
