Jade is a guest instructor for Garage Girls Fitness and you will most likely see her in videos filmed in the great outdoors!  Jade is a lecturer in the Department of Kinesiology at LBSU with Jan. She holds over 10 certifications in areas such as personal training, group exercise, cycle, Pilates, and yoga. Goal setting is something Jade excels at...she has completed the Los Angeles Marathon 17 times! When Jade isn't teaching students, training her clients, or managing her own facility, she and her dog Tucker can be found outside hiking, cycling, or kayaking...and maybe even dancing to some Frank Sinatra around the campfire!

Julie attended college at UCSB and then graduated from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 2001.  She and her husband, Brian, settled in Huntington Beach and Julie opened her chiropractic office in Costa Mesa in 2003.  Julie began her yoga journey in 2009 after one of her favorite patients encouraged her to try it out.  Julie fell in love with yoga and has practiced Bikram, Hatha and Power yoga for over 10 years.  Julie completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2016 at Core Power Yoga and began teaching at a small studio in Huntington Beach.  Julie’s yoga classes are designed for students new to yoga, but she likes to challenge all students.  Her philosophy is to make yoga fun by adding repetition and creating success for all students.  Her goal is for everyone to love yoga as much as she does!

 

In Julie’s yoga videos, you may notice lots of outside distractions.  Julie has two kids, Josh (16) and Taylor (13) and two dogs, Bella (8yr old black lab) and Izzy (4 month old yellow lab).  Izzy seems to love sitting next to Julie or on top of her while she is teaching her online classes.
