'The journey of a lifetime'

My experience with my yoga training retreat was the journey of a lifetime. The leadership course was challenging, but those difficulties brought me to new places that I was not aware I could reach. The structure of the course was genuine and unique and Julia’s passion for the environment was contagious. I left feeling more confident in my choices and absolutely motivated to pursue environmental activism.

Through this intensive course I gained clarity and motivation to follow the path of passion and love for pachamama. True to the name, my time with Julia and her co-creators was awakening.

'Train with someone who will inspire you'

I’ve been a doula now for over 10 years, so when I took my training with Stefanie (WAY back then) it was an incredible experience. I left feeling ready to take on Birth World! Now imagine, 10 years later and 1000’s of attendees later…imagine the type of trainer Stefanie is now. The maturity, the passion and the knowledge that comes along with learning right along side of you. Stefanie is the real deal – she gets it. You want to be a doula? Train with someone that will inspire you, not just teach you. Give Doula School a call

'If you are serious, start here'

I credit Stefanie with the success of my practice. From the moment she spoke I caught the doula bug – she is passionate and professional in equal measure. Not only did her teaching set me up for success, she remains an excellent mentor and someone I hope to continue working with; I loved my training so much I completed two additional courses. 5 months since my initial class, I now take care of my very own clients full time while pursuing certification and several passion projects in the field. If you are serious about having a meaningful doula career, start here. – Zoe Elkington, Milk & Blossom

'The workshop was fun and interactive'

The workshop was informative, well organized and current. Stefanie took the time to make the workshop fun and interactive. The homework was great for bringing awareness to the perspectives that differ between cultures, religion and communities. Learning about the variety of complications was an important component of birth doula care I had not considered but now I feel prepared to talk about these things.

'A wealth of knowledge from years of experience'

I have attended a number of Doula School’s courses throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, both in person and virtually.  It has been an awesome privilege to be able to learn from Stefanie.  She is an incredible facilitator — a wealth of knowledge from years of experience and truly emanates passion for this important work, you cannot help but feel inspired.  I continue to seek out continuing education opportunities through Doula School because I know that the content is up-to-date and will be presented thoughtfully in an accessible way.  Through the Birth Doula Workshop and Business School for Doulas, I have gained valuable and practical insight with the tools to go forth and DOULA.

Insightful, knowledgeable, inspiring

Julia is a gifted, insightful, knowledgeable and inspiring teacher of yoga and anatomy, as well as a talented healer, educator and ambassador for women’s health. Her intuition, sensitivity and precision enable her to read the language of the body and help individuals become more comfortable, whether they are on or off the mat. I highly recommend her as a yoga teacher and health educator.

I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor

Julia gave me one of the most singly empowering pieces of advice I have received in my years: believe in what you have to offer to the world. She blends her deep knowledge and belief of the physical, physiological, emotional, and spiritual benefits of yoga with harmony, grace, and love. I couldn’t have asked for a better mentor to encourage me on my journey of learning to become a yoga teacher!
