Introduce yourself! Who are you? My name is Juliana Spicoluk and I run Boho Beautiful along with my husband.
Did you always know what you wanted to do as a career? No I didn’t. I always had a passion for helping others and fitness has been a part of my life since I was young, however life is a beautiful adventure in the way that it guides you to the right path. You simply must always listen to your heart and surrender to the process in the way it brings you to where you need to be.
Were you scared to start the process? Yes, definitely. It’s still scary at time’s putting yourself out there for the whole world to see and judge but it would be even scarier to wake up one day and wonder what would have happened if I followed my dream.
What is one thing no one really knows about you? When I lived in Ukraine as a child I used to rescue street stray animals and bring them all to our home causing my mother heart great anxiety and endless cat food bills every time.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? Your greatest strength lies on the other side of fear.
What would you say to 16 year old you? Trust the process, you are exactly where you need to be. Breathe and let go.
Have you ever had anyone doubt you? How did that make you feel? Oh yes, all the time. I used that negativity to fuel my drive to prove them wrong.
What message do you think every woman should hear? Within all of us, there is a powerful goddess that resides. Her energy is there guiding us through this beautiful journey and reminding us of our nurturing power. We must never forget to tune into this energy through our every day actions so that we can bring our most authentic selves for the world to see.
Have you always had confidence in yourself? No there are always moments in my life where I struggle with confidence. Growing up being bullied for looking different as a child athlete I had my fair share of self esteem issues but yoga helps me deal with any of these feeling when they arise. As it gives me the opportunity to connect deeper with my truest self.
What do you love most about yourself? My empathy towards all beings. Human and non human. Seeing myself as equal with everyone I come across on this Earth.
What motivates you most? What motivates me most is hearing how people use our content to evolve their own practice and life. Hearing stories from our community is one of the biggest motivations to keep doing more and giving more of ourselves to the world.
How do you manage your work-life balance? Finding time in nature to disconnect from work and which then fuels more inspirations to focus on work then the mind is refreshed.
What do you do on a daily basis to grow and move forward? Yoga, meditation, long hikes in the Forrest, and vision boards.
If you weren’t doing the job you have now, what would you be doing? If I wasn’t doing yoga and all that I do now, I would be a vet working abroad with animals in need.
Who is your biggest role model? Why? For inspiration: my mom. No matter what life brings she always finds a way to lead with kindness and compassion, even towards people that do her wrong.
What are your biggest passions? My biggest passion: teaching, self love, kindness, and following my heart no matter where it takes me.
