Since Justine began her journey into teaching in 2015, every direction she turns she meets inspiration and motivation to remain on this path. She began her yoga journey 9 years ago, and after 5 years of falling in and out of her practice, she found consistency and devotion through her discovery of Self. It was the transition of shifting her experience of yoga from a purely physical practice that happened in a class, to something she carried with her in each moment. Breath, awareness, movement. Her curiosity about the workings of the mind, our relationship with ourselves and our bodies, and the transformative impact of yoga drove her to take the leap she had always feared to take, and in August of 2015 she left the country for the first time to complete a 200-hr training in Costa Rica. Through consistent teaching since, 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. Her time spent at Deha Yoga has been central to the teacher she is today, and the opportunities and growth it has offered to her journey is irreplaceable. Her heart is truly present in all she teaches.
Justine instructs the following:
A vinyasa flow practice where we explore all the usual postures (sun salutes, the warriors, backbends, hip openers) in a fluid and creative way. This is a practice where you can lose yourself in the simple rhythm of linking breath with movement. All levels, but expect to move your body! 80 degrees.
This is a practice that stays low to the floor, but works deep into the connective tissues, fascial networks and joint capsules of the body. Primary focus is placed on the pelvis. Postures are held for extended periods of time to allow for muscular release. Once muscles release, the deeper “yin” tissues of the body are able to receive the benefits of the posture. Because Yin Yoga targets ligaments, bones and joints, it is not recommended for those working with an active or recent injury. For many, this class provides a deep energetic release as well. 75 degrees.
This class is a stress BUSTER. Each posture is typically held for 4-10 minutes and is completely supported by props. No stretching, no muscular stress, just sweet, mellow release. Recommended at least once a week for maximum benefits that extend into all aspects of your life. Please note that the Sunday class is 90 minutes (6-7:30pm) and includes seated meditation. All levels, 75 degrees.
A vinyasa flow practice where we explore all the usual postures (sun salutes, the warriors, backbends, hip openers) in a fluid and creative way. This is a practice where you can lose yourself in the simple rhythm of linking breath with movement. Experience with "flow" yoga is recommended as more challenging postures are taught (arm balances & inversions). Modifications are always given! 80 degrees.
Full Moon Nidra Night
The full moon can be an energetically intense time of the month. Full Moon Nidra night will encompass a variety of practices to ground and balance the flood of emotion that we often feel overwhelmed by when not fully in tune with what we’re experiencing. Our practice will include mindful awareness, setting our sankalpa, or intention formed between heart and mind, an asana practice to encourage energetic movement, as well as the deeply nurturing practice of Yoga Nidra. Come prepared to move, groove, and celebrate deep transformation.
“A great Awakening has begun. People around the world are opening their eyes to their own spiritual natures. They are beginning to see who they truly are and what they have always been -beings with an eternal past and a glorious future.” ~Betty Eadie
