I returned to Venice for a few days and it was wonderful to take Julia's class in the Serra dei Giardini! The class was well-paced, Julia explained everything clearly in Italian and English, she paid attention to each of her students, and the location is wonderful, too, with lots of light, plus oxygen from the plants.
Very good teacher, she explains everything very well and helps students overcome challenges. She is precise and very professional. Every class is different and enriching, I always come out of it energized and soothed, I highly recommend it!

This studio is truly special. Julia brings her extensive experience along with a brilliant and happy energy to every class. She is refreshing to mind, body, and spirit. Very highly recommended!
I recently moved to Venice and came across this wonderful studio. Julia was flexible with my schedule and came to my apartment to teach yoga. She was able to provide a customized session for me as I am a runner and wanted to focus on certain areas. Although I was unable to do some of the moves as thoroughly as she was, she made sure I was comfortable and provided knowledge for alternate moves for me to still obtain a deep stretch. Would recommend this for anyone passing through Venice as well as locals!
I was blessed with an opportunity to participate in a yoga session in Venice on 21 June 2016, that is the International Day of Yoga. Yogavenezia appeared to be the only group doing yoga in this beautiful Italian city. The Yoga teacher, Julia Curtis, and her students were very kind to allow me to join them in their class. The teacher had a lot of patience to correct the postures of everyone of her students and she had good knowledge of asanas and pranayama. To Julia and her students, I would like to say 'a big thank you'.
Julia is a great teacher, very precise and always with an eye in regard to her students. Thanks to her I've understood mistakes that I've been making for years in asana :)
It encourages me to improve and she is the first to see your improvements with enthusiasm. Julia puts a lot into her lessons, in fact they are always dense in exercises and she is generous with her time. Thank you teacher!
I loved the class! It was a gift for me to find a yoga class in Venice! Thank you very much.
Today we had a wonderful time with Julia. Nine ladies from Sweden are now full of energy, we can highly recommend Julia!
It is the best yoga class i have ever visited. Very personal and implies physical as well breathing exercises. I Always feel uplifted and can’t wait for the next lesson! Thank you.
Namaste! I came to Venice for a few months and was looking for a Yoga class taught in English. So happy I found Julia! I enjoyed the classes at different inspiring locations throughout the city and in the private setting of her home. Through her flexible schedule we managed to create a morning class for a small group once a week - what a perfect start to a busy day working with the Biennale! Her style of teaching was very inspiring and with her input and support, she helped me to develop my own Yoga practice further. I recommend Julia's class to everyone who spends time in Venice., even if you're here for a couple of days, it's worth it. I'll join you the next time I'm around!

I spent a year in Venice and attended Julia's yoga classes as much as I could - she is a wonderful instructor and incredibly welcoming and encouraging to people of all levels. Classes are held in a variety of beautiful locations around the city so it is a great chance to explore Venice. She speaks perfect Italian as well as English which is super helpful. I will 100% be returning to YogaVenezia when I come back to Venice.
Julia is such a wonderful teacher - patient, intuitive, skilled, fun, wise and she made the time fly by. If I lived closer I would take as many classes as possible with her! Julia's repertoire of many ways to approach a movement or posture was a huge help for me. I felt like I had been rehabilitated! Her knowledge of Reiki was an additional aid to me when I had an injury - the pain and swelling diminished like magic. I can't wait to be back in Venice and take more classes.
Julia has an exceptional ability to bring physical relaxation and release tension through massage. She has a deep understanding of the body’s ability to heal, and is very knowledgeable in her work. I was very fortunate to receive a massage from Julia while traveling through Europe. I had been feeling a lot of physical discomfort. After my massage with Julia I felt a huge relief, and much more flexibility in my body. It was truly a healing experience!

I starting getting massages from Julia two years ago. I have chronic neck and shoulder pain as well as sciatica. Julia has an excellent sense of the cause of the pain and she works diligently and patiently to resolve the problem. Her training in yoga also means she is capable to recommend the correct exercises to help prevent the discomfort from returning.
I would highly recommend Julia for both massage and for yoga.
