“Multifaceted Being”

I still do not fit into any of the above categories besides other. We are all multifaceted and unique.

My Jewish roots shine the brightest, and it is way beyond religion, it is a state of being. Great Jewish lesson of the week below.

Shabbat Shalom,

Avram Davis The Parsha Mishpatim talks a great deal about various laws. Servitude, responsibility, eye for an eye, animals destroying property, helping strangers and so on. It ends with Moses going up the mountain, into the clouds. For me, these teachings are a strong reminder that spirituality is a very personal, physical thing. It is found in the changing of diapers and how we try and interact with people in the street. And that these physical lessons are best learned in community; in relationship; in tribe. Why, because there is nothing so difficult as relationship. But for Jews, or any People that follow the tribal path, there can be no ascent into the clouds without the difficult, joyful and sorrowful work of dealing with the nuances of the ‘we’. We are connected. And because we are connected, I have to know what Jewish Law and custom says should be done if your goat consumes my vegetable garden. And this is the essence of religion also. I bless us all to have well behaved goats this shabbos and be able to enter the clouds.

Listening is a choice

Afshine Emrani 

Giving is a choice.
Honesty is a choice.
Optimism is a choice.
Happiness is a choice.
Forgiveness is a choice.
Spoken words are choice.
Teaching others is a choice.
Respecting others is a choice.
Showing gratitude is a choice.

Make better choices. Good morning.

I get inspired by people and words. I love to really listen to the message that is being conveyed, and to really understand where the messenger is coming from.

How do you listen?

To yourself?

To others?

From pregnancy to parenthood

I have so much insight into pregnancy, labor, and birth. This morning I supported mother and baby into this world, and now have a meeting with a new Doula client.

Parenthood is a whole other state of being that is a big work in progress for me.

I love the guidelines above showing us that a simple touch, a hug, and undivided attention goes along way.

That I can follow,

Join me.

Figuring out the live stream

I am so excited for the next phase of www.coachyulia.com. I finally feel that technology has caught up to my vision. Stay tuned for details, and in the mean time enjoy videos and updates of the process.

I really love the process, the journey, and the waves of life. It is so important to keep reconnecting to what feels right deep in your gut. Of course trying new things, and following advice may lead to new ideas. It may also get in the way of how you present yourself to the world.

My mission and vision is to be 100% me, and inspire everyone around me to do the same. When you come from a place of peace and balance, it is such a beautiful way to see and interact with people and the world around us.

I see the connections and miracles in every moment.

Only when you open up to your true self is this possible.

Feel Good!

I feel the work, now time to rest

Yoga is one thing that I always fit into my week, but everything else has a cycle that all depends on my schedule. I always remind everybody that especially in sunny California there is no excuse not to do some form of exercise and movement. There are so many options, and most places offer you a deal to try. The secret is to find what you like then you will want to do it. Lucky for me I know exactly what I like, for cardio, hiking and for weights, a body pump class.

Finally my schedule allowed me to go take a body pump class, and I’m feeling the work all over in a good way. I’m so grateful for my week, and so ready to rest.

It is so nice to have a day without any devices or distractions, so I can connect soul to soul with everyone around me. I try to bring this soul to soul connection into my work, and it creates a beautiful energy exchange. Shabbat is my recharge.

Shabbat Shalom,

Coach Yulia

Videos and Live Yoga coming soon!

I am so excited for the future of www.coachyulia.com. My students that live all over the country and even the world will be able to take live classes with me. Technology and life keep changing, and students that I have had for the last twenty years will finally be able to reconnect with me for live classes.

It feels so good to do what you love, and to trust when something feels right.

The time is now.

Excited to energy exchange with you online soon!

Coach Yulia

I am sitting in traffic, reflecting on how wonderful it is to feel good. I wish the same for you!

Get clear about what you are not meant to do


Today has been a day of trust, being present to everything being just the way it is, and taking care of me. It is making so many things clear, and I know exactly what I am not meant to do.

I am letting go of everything that is taking my time and energy. It may have been something that worked in someway at sometime. Maybe financially or for experience, but now its time to release and elevate.

I’m ready,

www.coachyulia.com is going to the next level very soon!

“the line between authenticity and narcissism is dangerously thin”

“the line between authenticity and narcissism is dangerously thin”

Elizabeth Lesser


What separates people and personalities that we admire is exactly this concept of authenticity versus narcissism.

There are so many ways to nurture yourself and love yourself, that have nothing to do with ego.

It is such a powerful feeling to affect people, see them appreciating and responding to your message.

Fall in love with the energy exchange, anything beyond that is narcissism.

Fact: MLK stood with Jews and Israel

The Left does to Israel and Jewish people what the Right does to Latinos and Muslims. #StopScapegoating
Joshua Rotenberg shared a link.

Moral vacuum at the New York Times … article filled with errors of commission, errors of omission and bias.



I am so grateful that I come from a multicultural background, and was raised in diversity. Martin Luther King Jr. is the highest example of what lens to see our world. It is so sad that today there is no dialogue, many people have on side and that’s it, and the easy target on both sides are Jewish people and Israel.

“When Dr. King defended Israel’s right to exist and to have secure borders in the late 1960’s, he was directly contradicting Black anti-Zionists who were verbally attacking Israel (and him); who supported (or ignored) terrorism and violence against Israeli civilians, and who dismissed Israeli Jews as colonizers and thieves.
Today, those detractors would be represented by people like Jeremiah (Jesus-was-a-Palestinian) Wright, Angela Davis, Alice Walker, Marc Lamont (from-the-River-to-the-Sea) Hill, Tamika (I-can’t-say-that-Israel-has-the-right-to-exist) Mallory, Rep. Hank (Jews-are-termites) Johnson, and Louis (Hitler-was-a-great-man) Farrakhan.
We cannot say what Dr. King would say if he were here today. He is not — and to purport to speak for him is beyond arrogant. What we can say, without doubt, is that — while he was here — he stood against the very type of anti-Semitism, Jew-hatred, and anti-Zionism spewed by some who claim to carry his mantle of justice.
They do not.
Much love,
Dumisani Temsgen Washington”

He is an example for us all,

African-American Jews say they are reflecting on issues from their family histories to takes on the Women’s March controversy and race relations in the United States.

Dr. Tarece Johnson couldn’t find traditional liturgy that focused on conversion, social justice, and the Black Jewish woman experience. She …

Women’s March Supports BDS



My ultimate goal is to clearly show my fellow Jews how antisemitism and one sided some stances are. If others are open to dialogue, I am thrilled to share viewpoints and experiences.

The Women’s March lead by Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory openly stand by antisemitism and dehumanizing Israel.

I saw an interesting article thoroughly  detailing where Jews come from, antisemitism as well as explaining how Jews are from all over the world.


It’s a really great introduction for somebody that wants to learn the background and basics, but they do get one thing wrong. Their explanation of Israel is inconsistent across the board.

Below is the best description of the true nature of the Women’s March, and how it alienates and vilifies instead of unites.

What shameful display of bigotry today. Far-left extremist Linda Sarsour championed Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel while speaking at the Women’s March amid the organization’s growing anti-Semitism scandal while Co-President Tamika Mallory nodded in agreement with Sarsour. Disgusting. Vile. Islamists who have infested the Democratic Party. As Hillel Fuld wrote today, “I have only one thing to say about this Women’s March. As a Jew, I always wondered how the Germans didn’t oppose Hitler. The answer? He aligned the economic issues with Jew hatred so people confused the two. Blurring the lines between feminism and antisemitism? Same story again!” In medicine, there are viruses that change their coat to look like an organ, then they hit and attack. Confuse the issues, then piggyback anti-Semitism. Pretent you care about women. Teach Jew hatred. Pretent you are fighting for the people. Elect Hamas to Congress. Disgusting cancerous women.
