Julie loves being on her yoga mat, spending time in nature, road trips with her family and having fun with friends and family.

Through experiences on her mat, Julie learned that ultimately she was the only one who had the power to change her life.  Julie’s intention for her students is to inspire and empower so that they expand the boundaries of what they think is possible for themselves on and off their mat.

Krystyl grew up skiing and camping in the northeast. In 2004, her love and curiosity of what Colorado could offer her brought her out 'for a season'. So far, that season had lasted 12 years and she decided Vail would be her forever home. Krystyl walked through the doors of Revolution Power Yoga in early 2013 having never tried yoga before. Immediately, she fell in love with the practice and the community at RPY and decided to revolve her life around yoga. That following month, she became an ambassador and an assistant. In March 2014, Krystyl ventured to Kenya for her 200 hour teacher training with Africa Yoga Project and soon after, went straight to Baptiste's Level 1 and eventually Level 2. Krystyl is the Manager at Revolution Power Yoga and loves to geek out on all things yoga - assisting in-house programs, workshops, teacher trainings, community yoga events, and attending any and all continuing education programs whenever possible. Krystyl has experience dealing with injuries and modifications and loves to share her knowledge in classes and in privates to help yogis get back on their mats post injury! When out of the studio, you’ll find her backpacking, skiing, hiking and spending time with her husband, Tim and her Newfoundland, Arlo Pepperoni Longbottom!

Along with those shifts came a new positive outlook. Being an Education Major and a Snowboard Instructor, she found it natural to want to train with Baron and spread the love of her practice outward to her community.
