Julia Vanessa

Self-taught photographer with a passion for weddings and all things human connection, several heart-filling long-term travels around the globe, a university degree in business and marketing and a deep calling for the art of teaching mindfulness through yin yoga & mediation - through a long personal history of deep family issues, an autoimmune disease and being highly sensitive brought me to yoga and many other tools like living by the moon, healthy organic clean eating, soul food, aromatherapy, living slow and with intent, mono tasking, spending less and focusing on experiences instead of materialistic goods, questioning the status quo, finding new ways, self-care, self-acceptance, nature walks, reading a lot, researching, creating, making space for what‘s truly important, appreciation and commitment to my relationships, being guided by intuition, bringing mind and soul together, creating space for myself and others, and loving kindness meditation as a tool to riding the highs and lows of life, because 'no mud no lotus" - mindfulness, awareness and presence, consciousness as a relief, guidance and as the unshakable Truth within - finding gratitude and joy in being sensitive, open and receptive in everyday life - for being an Empowered Empath open, vulnerable, honest and real, while at the same time having boundaries and a strong loving, nurturing sense of self - unlearning unhealthy patterns, relearning healthy habits while nourishing and nurturing feminine yin qualities within all of us. Giving forward all the tools and knowledge that nourish and support healing so you can reclaim your innate power and heal yourself - and heal the world. To preserve moments of love. To nurture living a slow(er) life, for experiencing things and people fully, for finding peace, and letting to of "hustling into worthiness". Surrender and all is coming.  A manifest for participating in worldly pleasures, but with meaning, depth and connection in an aesthetically pleasing way, because beauty and symmetry elevate our frequency and consciousness.

Thank you for sharing the path of unfolding and coming home.

Truth Over Feeling Good. Connection. Empathy. Intention. Nature. Less is More. Minimalism. Moon Cycles. Sustainability. Caring. No FOMO. No BS.

Intimacy. Belonging. Home. 
Being held. Truly not caring what others think. Taking time to just be.
