Justine Weitzman

RYT-200
Justine experienced her first taste of yoga over a decade ago, and after 5 years of falling in and out of a practice, she stepped whole-heartedly onto the path of yoga when she began to shift her perspective from a purely physical practice, to something that could be woven throughout all aspects of life. Her curiosity about the inner workings and determination to dissect the practice of yoga brought her to her first 200-hr training in 2015 through School Yoga Institute. Through consistent and devoted teaching since, exploratory personal practice, various healing modalities through White Raven Center, and an insatiable hunger to discover more about the human experience, she has found a teaching style that combines building a relationship with the body, mind, and spirit, and challenging ourselves to settle into the comforts and discomforts of the constant ebb and flow of life. She continues to educate herself on the synchronicity between the present moment and the natural cycles of life. Since stepping into Deha Yoga, she has expanded her offerings through various trainings, including Yoga Nidra, Chakra training with Anodea Judith, as well as Megan Piersma’s Yin Yoga & Restorative Yoga Teacher Training. Megan has been deeply influential to the teacher Justine is today, and the opportunities and growth the studio and community has offered to her journey is irreplaceable. Her heart is truly present in all she teaches, as her inspiration comes from a desire to deeply connect and awaken to the truth of ourselves: that we are pure LIGHT!

Megan Piersma

ERYT500, YACEP & Founder of Deha Yoga
Megan found yoga in college in 2003 and has been consistently practicing ever since. Her practice on the mat has been incredibly fulfilling in that it requires a constantly shifting perspective of the physical body. But it was her practice OFF the mat that guided her to open Deha Yoga in February of 2016. Megan received her 200-hour training in 2011 and completed her 300-hour training with Semperviva Yoga College in Vancouver, BC in early 2017. She gives gratitude to the many teachers that have helped inform her style: Bernie Clark's Yin Yoga, Judith Hanson Lasater's Restorative Yoga, Gurmukh and Gloria Latham's Kundalini Yoga, Adyashanti's True Meditation, Clara Roberts-Oss and Janet Stone's Vinyasa Yoga, Shelley Christopherson and Dr. Katy Komenda's Sanskrit for Yogis, Tiad and Surya Little's Prajna Yoga Style and so SO many more. Megan pulls on many styles, sources and lineages in her classes and requires much of her students – that they support their bodies, train their minds and connect to their own personal source of power. You will sing, dance, shake, cry, move, learn, settle, surrender, breathe, laugh and allow. Megan encourages you to be unconditionally curious in all that you do.

Becky Michalski

For Becky, like most of us, yoga began as a physical practice almost a decade ago. She loved the challenge of asana and delighted in a fast-paced, fun, flowing vinyasa class. Over the years, her yoga practice evolved from primarily a physical one to one that is more nurturing, contemplative, and restorative. As a critical care nurse, Becky experiences first-hand the effects of injury, stress, and illness – which are profoundly traumatizing for the person, their families, and also their caretakers. Physically and emotionally, she began to feel overwhelmed in her nursing career. By slowing down and deepening her yoga practice, she discovered its powerful ability to heal and rejuvenate. It became an important part of a daily self-care ritual that allows her to be more present and compassionate with herself and when caring for others. This realization led to a desire to share yoga with others. Becky took a 200-hour interdisciplinary yoga teacher training in Nosara, Costa Rica, followed by a mentorship with Kim Greeff in Anchorage, and Relax and Renew Restorative Yoga training with Judith Lasater. With this guidance, Becky has discovered a passion for teaching yoga that is accessible to all. In her classes, she hopes to share the healing benefits of yoga and to help you live better in body, mind, and spirit.
