Julie Sullivan, Director and Founder of Petit Papillon Yoga, was recently
named one of the 2013 "40 Under 40" by the South Shore Stars. Julie has
studied extensively in the field of children's yoga and is trained through
ChildLight Yoga, Radiant Child Yoga, Itsy Bitsy Yoga and Next Generation

founded Petit Papillon Yoga to create a unique, fun and nurturing place
where kids, families and even grownups can come to learn about yoga
and the many benefits it can bring! Julie has created a program that takes
the ancient practice of yoga asana (poses) and sutras (philosophy) and
makes it accessible for everyone, even the littlest yogis. In addition to her
yoga teaching, Julie is an AFAA certified group exercise instructor and an
early childhood dance teacher.
