JULIANN KUCHOCKI, CAEA, ACTRA, SOCAN, RYT200
Hello & Welcome to Pro Arts Yoga & Performing Arts (FULL BIO BELOW)
My name is Juliann Kuchocki CAEA, ACTRA, SOCAN, RYT200, & I am the director of Pro Arts & founded the company in 2000.
If you would like to learn more about me, I welcome you to read through my greeting to my full bio below. I have an extensive professional background in performing arts & fitness & being fortunate to have traveled world wide working as a professional on stage, in film & TV & in the fitness & dance industry has infused world experiences I am grateful to now share with my clients & students.
But it hasn’t all been easy! My experience with injury & recovery comes from first hand personal misfortunes & challenges from losing my dance career & having my life tied up with insurance companies because of being hit in serious car accidents.
Thankfully, after over a decade of recovery of all kinds, my past disciplines as a national level dancer & yoga training pulled me through.
Now, I can share those experience with others. My road to recovery was long. It wasn’t easy but, because of my experience I deeply understand the mental, physical & spiritual challenges involved in injury & recovery & finding your path back to yourself.
It is my passion in life to create & help people be the best they can be. What better gift can I ask for than being able to help others so that maybe they don’t have to suffer as much because someone else is there to help them, who has some knowledge, training & experience they can share that may help them recover a little faster?
