Facilitators:

Julia Midland
Julia has spent much of her life volunteering with and working in support of various charities and non-profits throughout the world. In her professional life, she regularly manages large-scale research projects to identify program needs, monitor outreach, and evaluate programming successes against baseline indicators. She is passionate about spreading the practices of trauma informed yoga to communities that do not otherwise access and started The OMPowerment Project as a way to live this purpose. The OMPowerment Project is thus, the culmination of her life’s work. It is a journey of discovery built on her experience growing up in the developing world, witnessing the injustice around her, and innately understanding, even at a young age, that from her role of privilege she could choose to live in ways that either perpetuated those injustices or helped to dismantle them. It is the story of her passion for service, her own history of trauma and PTSD, and the discovery of her empowerment and capacity to heal through yoga. It is a journey through her experience in working with marginalized communities, her understanding of best practices to ‘do no harm,’ and her heartfelt belief, based in these experiences, that community-led initiatives are more effective, have greater impact, and are more likely to generate sustainable change over the long term.
