ABOUT YOUR GUIDES

HARPER BOTOROWICZ

@HARPERBEING

State of Gratitude Retreat | Harper Botorowicz | Wellness Desert Fall Trip
 
Before shifting her focus to yoga, Harper studied Food and Nutrition at the University of Alabama where she earned her B.S. degree.
She is trained to guide Hatha, Vinyasa, Prenatal and Yin. She currently studies Meridian Therapy and her Advanced Yogic Studies under Erin Rose Vaughan (MSAc, E-RYT). Harper will begin on her Doctorate in Chinese Medicine in the fall.  She also has a long time meditation practice. She advocates having power over your mind to have more power over yourself/life – your breath helps you get there.

Pranayama, meditation and yoga are ritual daily practices.  It was this interest in the mind, that drove Harper to dive into hypnotherapy studies. Studying with Damian Bertrand under his method, she specialized in past life regression hypnotherapy and deep relaxation.

JULIA KAUFMAN

@YOGAWITHJULIA_

 

At 19, Julia began practicing yoga which led her to a career as a vinyasa teacher/junkie and avid lover of traveling and self-exploration. She is a student of religious texts, with a bachelor’s degree from NYU. She teaches now to bring to others the same sense of transformation and compassion that yoga delivers her. Julia’s classes are challenging, spontaneous and graceful.

Julia completed 500 Hours of Yoga Teacher training, with an additional 100 hours of training in teaching inversions and 50 hours of Ayurvedic medicine. She was introduced to Ayurveda by her Guru in 2013 and began studying in a formal institution in 2019. In addition to yoga and Ayurvedic medicine, she enjoys writing her blog, reading and traveling.

CAROLINE LACY

@CAROLINE.LACY.YOGI

Caroline found yoga when she moved out to LA, right when she needed it most. After starting out at a small, non-heated studio, she found Modo Yoga LA and hasn’t looked back since. Caroline started at their studio as an Energy Exchanger (trading work for yoga), then began working at the desk, and now she has become a teacher there in her second home. In the room, she encourages students to challenge themselves, and really listen to their bodies, while she maintains an authentic (and slightly goofy) presence to connect with students. She firmly believes that yoga is accessible to everyone and that it doesn’t have to be so serious all the time. She also deeply values the time that you get to connect with your breath and the time you get away from the outside world. She hopes her students will be able to disconnect and truly achieve some inner peace in her class.
