Namaste New York was conceived in the wake of the attacks of September 11, 2001 when Julie noticed a profound shift in how individuals and organizations searched for meaningful practices to support well being and performance. In response to this need, Julie created Namaste as a company that is uniquely positioned to consult, educate, coach, curate and deliver personalized wellness for organizations, individuals and families.
An unwavering commitment to service has always been central to Julie’s personal ethos. In addition to serving Namaste’s clients, Namaste delivers complementary wellness treatments to a wide variety of underserved and disenfranchised New York schools, hospitals and parks.
