Julie Johnson

CO-FOUNDER, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, COMMUNITY EDUCATOR

Julie Johnson is a teacher, artist and community educator in St. Louis, MO. She's been working in Ferguson for nearly six years in a variety of educational positions, but has been a Teacher of the Visually Impaired for nine years. In her time working in Ferguson and North County, as a Teacher of the Visually Impaired and within homes and schools, she noticed how high the instances of poverty, childhood trauma and overall toxic stress were among the families and students she served. After watching how deep the toxic stress was embedded into the daily lives of her students and their families throughout many years, she wanted to come up with a way to offer the gift of yoga that was culturally and physically acceptable to her students. Julie was passionate that yoga could provide students with healing tools that could empower them to seek healthy options of coping with toxic stress. Now in it's second year of existence, Fit Abilities continues to support students with visual impairments in North St. Louis County and beyond. The support extends itself in day to day school routines, after school activities, and connects students' families to safe professionals that understand the impact trauma plays on them and their families.

In the midst of creating the Fit Abilities Trauma Informed Yoga Program in the fall of 2015, Julie also helped create the St. Louis Trauma Informed Network (Integrate!), after realizing there was a large need for professionals serving clients and students in communities with high amounts of trauma. The network allows its members to connect and share resources across transdisciplinary lines on a grass roots level. Additionally, the space aims to be a place to share resources and connect trauma survivors to appropriate professionals, aide in their healing, and connect professionals to each other to help support their caseload.
