Julie Blamphin's career path began in 1980 in her mother's school of gymnastics. She was 12 years old, teaching stretches and strength poses to kids in the Special Olympics. 

This western New York native has wandered the world far and wide; lived in places like California, West Virginia, Spain, and Italy; and currently resides in Annapolis Maryland USA.

Julie’s a yoga pro, speaker, author, founder of Stretch Your Spirit, and currently uses her racy vibe and groovy energy to inspire women to feel joyful, stable, and sexy through movement and stillness. Her work often touches on taboo topics, always highlights hope in healing, and is certain to tickle your fancy.

Julie's teaching approach is a synthesis of western science together with eastern wisdom. Her experience and education includes (but is not limited to) Registered Yoga Teacher Certification (2009), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, Pelvic Floor Yoga with Leslie Howard, Transcendental Meditation, Laughter Yoga, and The MELT Method with Sue Hitzmann.

Her recent speaking gigs include The Leading Lady Podcast, The Dr. Kinney Show, Midlife Rise and Thrive, the 2023 and 2024 WE LEAD Women’s Conference, Embody Your Body, and a long list of top podcasts and YouTube channels. She’s co-author of We Lead, Building Connection, Community, and Collaboration for Women in Business; Hot Mess to Hot Mom: Transformational Tools for Thriving After Childbirth and Beyond; and a contributing writer for AARP The Ethel, LIVESTRONG Magazine, Baltimore Banner, and Pelvic Health Support Canada.

Julie can whistle like a champ, is obsessed with cartwheels and alone time, and loves to dream in Spanish.
