JULIE ELLIS PT, SCS
I am a Physical Therapist, Sports Certified Specialist and have taught Yoga and Pilates as well as high intensity cardio classes for the College of Southern Idaho for over 15 years. I am a co-owner of Center for Physical Rehabilitation. I earned my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist in 1990 and am also a BrainyEx Certified Health Coach. I love running, hiking, skiing and music. I am passionate about helping my clients understand musculoskeletal or neurological issues that may be hindering their ability to function.
I am a 200 hour Registered Yoga Alliance Teacher who has been practicing yoga since 2009 and has been teaching since 2012. I received a yoga certificate through Shanti Yoga School and a Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga certification through Sadie Nardini. I teach a variety of classes including vinyasa, core-strength, power, kids, family, couples, chair, corporate, gentle, beginners, restorative, and yin. I have experienced first-hand the benefits of yoga and can truly say it saved my life. I love to see my client’s lives transformed due to the physical, mental and spiritual practice of yoga. In my spare time I finds myself reading yoga and plant-based nutrition books. I also enjoy baking for my family and learning how to cook plant-based. And when I’m not doing all that, I’m spending time with my family and friends.
My love for yoga started back in college when I stumbled upon a Bikram Hot Studio. The heat was exhilarating! I left that class and every single class since feeling refreshed both physically and mentally. The challenge of the heat and humidity is what keeps me intrigued and going back for more. I received my 200 hour yoga certification through Essential Hot Yoga in Boise, April 2016. I love spending time with friends and family, being up in the mountains as much as possible, I have a huge garden that keeps me busy, and have recently picked up boxing! I live in Twin Falls with my other half and our two pups!
Understanding the importance of fitness, not only for mission performance but for the overall quality of life, I have set upon a personal mission to understand how best to achieve “ultimate performance”.
In my research I have found that ultimate performance is derived from a balanced focus on nutrition, fitness, stress management, sleep and overall lifestyle management.
These are the foundations from which I train my clients, allowing them to achieve their fitness goals that will last a lifetime.
