Political type balances with yoga studio

Valley-based campaign consultant Julie Buckner is opening InYoga Center, a studio with boutique, in the former Dutton's bookstore on Laurel Canyon Blvd. in Valley Village. There's an office for her political business out back, says Los Angeles magazine.

For decades, long before she gave birth to her two sons and even as she worked on a slew of fast-paced campaigns for candidates and ballot initiatives, Buckner was using yoga to stay fit and focused. But after she turned 40 and went through a divorce that same year, her life felt out of whack.

“A lot of working women,” she says, “struggle with this idea: I have this full-time job going to work, and I have this full-time job as a single mom—I feel like I can’t do either one right.” Then it hit her. What if she stopped treating her recreational yoga and her political career as disparate parts of her life? What if the two did not just complement each other but were mutually beneficial?
