Julie Farmer is a practitioner of Vajrayana Buddhism in the tradition of Chogyam Trungpa. An impassioned proponent of embodied meditation, she teaches the bodywork practices derived from Tibetan yoga developed by Reggie Ray, founder of Dharma Ocean.
Julie is a senior student of Reggie Ray, and a Meditation Instructor for both Dharma Ocean and the Westchester Buddhist Center.
Formerly an orthopedic physical therapist, Julie has a massage therapy practice for women, Massage for Deep Relaxation. As in somatic meditation, helping people identify and release muscular holding patterns allows the physical circulation and subtle energies to flow freely in the body, providing a fertile environment for personal growth and transformation.
