Align ~ Oceanside

So, from time to time here on North County Food you will see features of companies that are not restaurants or food related. The companies and people in these articles, while not food based, are ones that fall inline with the objective and heart of the site.

Align is one such company and owners Julie Arriola and Billy Perkins are two such people. I have personal experience with this company and after getting to know them and utilizing their services (Thai Chi and in the future a work out routine with Billy that will meet my special health needs and limitations). I wanted to help them get the word out.

Here is some more info….



Julie Arriola
Credentials: Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP), C.H.E.K. Holistic Lifestyle Coach (HLC2), C.H.E.K. Practitioner (CP1), Tai Chi Instructor

Julie strives for a comprehensive approach in assisting individuals with finding their balance between mind, soul and body.

This passion evolved through her experience as a Kung Fu instructor, with an emphasis on the art of Tai Chi, which focused on the importance of examining the person as a whole, rather than centering on specific issues. 

Employing this holistic view through her massage and energetic healing practice, Julie seamlessly incorporates holistic lifestyle coaching, structural integration, energy work, somatic therapies and self-empowerment in her time spent with clients. Perhaps Julie’s strongest trait is her ability to allow her intuition to guide her as she calls on both her education and experience during her client consultations, therapeutic body work and energy healing sessions. 

Julie’s own life is a testament to the benefit of this holistic method. Through organic eating, a daily devotion to Tai Chi, conscious living and meditation, her well-being continues to smoothly flow, increasing her fervor for assisting individuals on their journey to a life of stability and harmony. 



Billy Perkins

Credentials: C.H.E.K. Holistic Lifestyle Coach (HLC2), C.H.E.K. Practitioner (CP1), Empowerment Coach

Billy Perkins is in the “Business of Is-ness.” By assisting his clients in acknowledging what is, he is able to guide them on how to effectively live in the present moment. Billy has learned from his personal experience, and 14 years of coaching, that living in the now frees one from recreating perpetual patterns that produce only one outcome; sameness. He knows that when one is able to learn how to optimally work with what is, then it is possible to let go of what was and create new possibilities.

Billy empowers, educates, and motivates his clients to live more consciously through the integration and application of simple holistic health practices. He understands that when we focus on mastering the universal fundamentals we free ourselves of the struggle that is typically associated with change.

Billy assists his clients in discovering the strongest version of themselves through understanding choice, mental stimulation, movement guidance, mastering the art of incremental change, and learning to listen to the body’s needs.

Again, I have been using their companies services and plan to continue. Ff you are interested in different approaches, other than buying another gym membership, to achieving your life fitness goals check them out at…
