Julia Wyncoll – Owner, Director, Teacher
Julia has been teaching Pilates for over twenty years and is passionately interested in helping students feel strong and healthy. Constantly updating her skills, she brings a natural curiosity to each class and session, so that the work continually feels new. Her life-long learning began with dance, and has grown to include anatomy, kinesiology, Pilates, Yoga and The Franklin Method. Students benefit from her well honed eye and problem solving abilities; transforming a workout into an open invitation to create change through movement.
Julia outgrew the private practice she was running for 8 years and began Inhabit Pilates and Movement. Pulling together wonderful teachers has allowed Inhabit to run many types of classes with the commonality of reaching for health and vitality. Julia continues to work privately with students who need one-on-one training, and enjoys teaching the dynamic mat classes she is known for.
Julia is certified in the Pilates Method (mat/equipment/wunda chair, Cadillac, and full barrel repertoire) with the PhysicalMind Institute, completed her Continuing Education Certificate with 2nd generation Master Pilates Teacher Dianne Miller, and is a Franklin Method Level 2 Educator. Her ongoing studies include Certification as a Level 1 trainer in 3-D Workout, and membership in both the Pilates Method Alliance and the East End Pilates Association for which she is both a presenter and attendee.
Julia studied dance at Etobicoke School of the Arts and York University, following which she studied with Moira Merrithew and taught at Lindsay and Moira’s original Stott Pilates studio. While earning a Master’s degree in Arizona State University’s dance program, Julia taught Pilates in the exercise department. Julia danced professionally in Arizona, Montreal, and Toronto, performing in works by Kaeja d’Dance, Corpus, Maxine Moermann Dance Theatre, Montanaro Dance, and for independent choreographers. She also performed an an improvisor with the 502 Collective. After returning to Toronto, she studied and taught at BodyMatrix and then originated the Pilates studio in the Adelaide Club downtown. In 2002 she began her own business: what began as one mat class in the Annex is now a busy studio.
Julia’s experience includes work with a wide range of ages, physical abilities and needs. She greatly enjoys promoting health in active individuals looking to hone their physical abilities, pre and post-natal women, and athletes. She has also been fortunate to work with people dealing with health challenges such as arthritis, osteopenia, Parkinson’s Disease, scoliosis, and back complaints whose lives have greatly improved due to their experience with Pilates. With the growth of her three beautiful children, Julia’s attention has also turned to helping tweens and teens come into their adult bodies with grace, strength, and good habits for life. Julia lives in Seaton Village and is proud to add her business to the offerings of the Annex, Seaton Village, Wychwood and Casa Loma neighbourhoods. Julia is available for presentations in these neighbourhoods and looks forward to being a part of the community for a long time.
