Julia WyncollFranklin Method® Educator Level 1, reg. 2015 Movement educator, Pilates teacher, Studio Founder
Julia Wyncoll is known as a dynamic teacher, engaging her students in the process of moving better for over 20 years. Dancing professionally as a modern dancer, her curiosity was constantly peaked when the information about how and why and where the body moves best was presented. Following this curiosity, Julia has studied with many of the best minds in the Pilates, dance and movement world including IdeoKinesis with Pamela Matt, Pilates with Dianne Miller and Michelle Larsson, and dance with faculty and mentors throughout the U.S. and Canada. Coming upon the Franklin Method was a wonderful find that deepened her knowledge and confirmed an approach to teaching based on being a partner in a student’s learning. Julia’s studio, Inhabit Pilates and Movement, hosted the first ever east coast Canada training, and is involved in further Franklin education events. Inhabit is home to 4 Franklin trained teachers and it’s influence is deeply felt in the work we teach, encouraging students to be active partners in their learning and movement towards health.
