Meet Jules Beedle of High Vibes Healing

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jules Beedle.

Jules, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Chronic Pain and Mental Illness have been a part of my life since I was ten years old. A sledding accident led me to have chronic back pain and over the years more of my body started to become injured due to all of the sports I am involved in. I started physical therapy at the age of 14 and continued to go on and off throughout high school. Meanwhile, I was also struggling with anger and depression. At 13, I started going to talk therapy; at 15 I went on Prozac which honestly helped me so much through high school. After getting to college, my mental health started to struggle, as well as my physical health. By sophomore year of college I was in so much pain I had to quit the Ultimate Frisbee team, which was my main sport at the time because I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Throughout my entire life, I had been treating my mind separately from my body. I saw a therapist and psychiatrist to treat my mental illness, while my primary care physician and rheumatologist treated my physical body. At one point I was on SEVEN different symptom control medications. After being told that my chronic pain was only going to get worse as I got older, I decided that I needed to do anything I could to fight this illness. The amount of medications I was on at the age of 19 was not acceptable to me; I knew there had to be another way.

Yoga was a tool that I had utilized occasionally throughout the years, so I was drawn back towards my practice to try and help heal myself from the inside out. My mom had Yoga Zone VHS tapes that I used to do when I was 12 years old to help with my depression and sleepless nights. In high school, I took Mind & Body as an elective gym class and fell in love with yoga again. Yoga is a practice that will be there for you when you need it. I was constantly doing sports, but in the summer, or over a long break, yoga was there to help me get my body moving. At the time, it was not clear to me just how yoga was helping me, but I knew that it was. When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I got a yoga mat and a few Rodney Yee Yoga DVDs to start an at-home practice. Shortly after I started a consistent practice, I started to see huge results. My pain lessened, my mind was calmer, and I even felt strong enough to join Ultimate Frisbee part-time again! I still was not sure what it was about yoga that helped me so much, but I decided that I wanted to become a yoga instructor after college so that I could help others experience the healing powers of yoga.

In August of 2013, I graduated with my 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training in Davie, FL at the Yoga Connection. This is when I started to tune into why yoga was such a powerful tool. Yoga means union of the mind, body, and soul. As you practice yoga, you develop a relationship with your mind through your body. We can gain so much awareness and control over our lives if we are able to connect with our inner power. Being able to help others tap into their power through yoga was an amazing experience, but I still felt like there was something missing from my practice. In the Spring of 2017, I found Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. This had been the “something more” that I had been looking for in my life.

Phoenix Rising allows me to learn a way to connect with people on a deeper, more meaningful level. This type of yoga therapy focuses on mental health and developing a mind-body connection. From April of 2017 to August of 2018, I received 600 hours of training to become a Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist. Over the next two years, I am continuing to take an additional 350 hours to become certified through the International Association of Yoga Therapists. I would love to create a community of strong, empowered people who are actively working to heal from their past and be happy in their present.

Right now I have a busy life, but it is one that I am passionate about and enjoy walking out the door to take part in every day. In the mornings I teach yoga to children in schools around the Denver Suburbs with a company called Stretch-n-Grow. A few afternoons a week I coach competitive gymnastics at Denver School of Gymnastics. In my remaining time, I see High Vibes Healing clients, write my blog, do photography, and any other normal life things that I need to do. Everyday is different, but that is what keeps it interesting to me! I knew I could not work in a setting where I did the same thing over and over again every day, so I created a life for myself that allows me to switch things up all the time. These days I am on ONE symptom control medication for my mental health. I am actively working everyday to improve my mental, emotional, and spiritual health, and I hope to help others do the same.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The journey to where I am now has been anything but smooth. Change has been brought into my life constantly both positive and negative; I have learned to adapt to new situations quickly. After I graduated college in May of 2013, I moved away from my home state of Illinois down to South Florida. This was the first of MANY moves. Over the past six years, I have moved nine times throughout four different states. Being able to establish any sort of roots has been impossible for me. Throughout all of these moves, I have also changed careers three times (while still teaching yoga part-time).

On top of all this change, I have had some serious struggles with mental health. I was in an emotionally abusive relationship which I am still healing from. My self-worth was destroyed and I felt like I had no control over my life. I was depressed or anxious almost all of the time. Being able to escape that relationship set my life on a course of self-discovery and healing. I felt damaged and knew I needed to take back control of my life. In April of 2018, I was diagnosed with PTSD; while this was hard to deal with, I finally felt like I had received the correct diagnosis. After learning more and more about it, I know that it is what I am struggling with. There are plenty of other setbacks that I have dealt with over the years; if you would like to find out more, check out my blog!

In November of 2017, I moved to Arvada, so I started to establish my business in the Denver area. Living in Capitol Hill now allows me to be able to connect with even more people than before. I finally feel like things are starting to settle down and the roots of my business are being planted.

High Vibes Healing – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
My company is called High Vibes Healing. My mission is to help women and men find their inner power in order to take back control of their lives and find true happiness. Through Yoga, Yoga Therapy and Therapeutic Life Mentoring, I help my clients find the strength to heal from their past and make positive, meaningful change to their lives. So often people go through life waking up and dreading the day ahead of them. Can you imagine hating every single day of your life? My goal is to help my clients find balance in every aspect of their lives and empower them to be the best versions of themselves. Specifically, I specialize in Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Using assisted yoga postures and dialogue techniques in one-on-one sessions, I help clients to bring awareness to what is happening in their bodies in the present moment. Helping clients to find acceptance of their true selves allows them to open their lives to growth and change, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. The process is non-directive and centered on the client. Through working with physical tension, PRYT therapists explore what is happening in our bodies and how it relates back to our everyday lives. Releasing this tension can often cause clients to discover a deeper inner truth to help move forward and lead a more meaningful, purposeful life.

I take pride in my business because I create a safe space for my clients to explore their mind-body connection and create real, meaningful change in their lives. I hope to break the cycle of unhappiness in our society one person at a time! My business is different than other modalities of therapy because it offers clients a chance to explore their minds THROUGH their bodies instead of treating them as two separate entities. Every session looks different and is based on what each client needs in that present moment. Some sessions can be active and energizing, while others can be more restorative based, or even a combination of both! It is common for emotions to come up through these sessions, but not expected of you; everything is allowed to show up exactly as it is. You do not need to fear being judged over what you are feeling. If people are looking for an alternative to the typical solutions for mental health or chronic pain, I would highly recommend trying out Yoga Therapy or Therapeutic Life Mentoring.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
My happiness defines my success. If I am not happy, what is the point to anything I am doing? Of course, there are other markers of success that are more practical, but I am not too extravagant. As long as I have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, and food on my table, I will consider myself successful. There are long term goals that I have in mind, sure, but if I wait until I achieve those goals to consider myself successful, I believe I will live a life chasing the next big “thing”, and ultimately feel unhappy or unsatisfied in the present moment. My goal is to be proud of my journey, no matter what step I am on. Nothing in life is constant, except change. I want to be able to find happiness through it all so that I do not look back at my life and realized I was miserable the entire time. I will be truly successful if I can live my life with passion and continue to spread love and light to those around me!
