You are such a great chef!! Lucky students… I look forward to another journey women adventure and amazing food weekend!! 🙂

Those of you who are interested in trying a homeschool Spanish class should really consider the one that Julia Grueskin is now offering at The Studio Space! We had our first class this week, and it was awesome! My sometimes hard-to-please son was so happy afterwards, and was talking about his new friends and the things they learned to say for hours that afternoon! I highly recommend this class! 🙂 Julia, you are amazing with kids! We simply could not believe how much laughter was coming from that group during the class! Kiddo is really looking forward to the next one! Oh, and it was not just messing around laughter…he learned a lot, too! 🙂

This past weekend I had the amazing privilege and honor to cook alongside the highly trained and talented vegetarian chef Julia Grueskin during an incredible and uplifting yoga retreat led by some fine gems. I learned so much about delicious foods and recipes but I also learned an insane amount about myself through the various yogic activities. If you have never been on a yoga retreat… I highly recommend! Disclaimer: the other fridge was basically overflowing with green goodness! Soooo fun!

And not to forget to mention the 5 ☆☆☆☆☆ restaurant quality nutrition we were spoiled with!! Spirit AND body blessed!! -Sharon

My son had so much fun at the cooking class yesterday! Julia, you are truly gifted with kids and food! Thanks for offering this!

In my raw food class today I learned how to make chocolate mousse out of avocado and cocoa (and a few other ingredients) and it was bomb. ‪#‎2015LearnNewThings‬ ‪#‎NOM‬ And you were a terrific chef instructor, Julia! Recipes that impress even the most loyal carnivore!

We love Julia’s ability to make simple, healthy, vegan ingredients taste like culinary art- just amazing. Even our non vegan friends were amazed at the flavor, texture and originality of her dishes. She’s so talented!

Little shout out to my very good friend Julia :) she has been such a god send during this pregnancy. Creating a prenatal yoga routine for me to do daily and always being there for the emotional support a new mama needs! Thank you 🙂 #truefriends #shesgoodpeople

Julia is a graduate of that October 2012 [culinary] Track. Julia did some great work in Austin in the Yoga scene and with the organization Growin’ Together. She has now relocated to New Mexico and will continue her work in food, yoga and art. We miss you Julia!!
