Justina was first exposed to yoga in 2014 when her friend was practicing to teach yoga. Already stressed from work and looking to find a new workout, how could she say no? She fell in love, and signed up for a membership almost immediately.
Although frugal by nature, she never regretted paying for such a life changing experience. Through yoga, Justina was exposed to more than just a venue to handle stress. She became more open to new ideas and experiences, and became more comfortable with herself. She began sharing her passion of the benefits of yoga with her family and friends.
In 2017, Justina took the leap and became 200 hour certified in Power Yoga. She aims to share her practice and goal of treating the body with respect and promoting longevity. She also endeavors to encourage her students to personalize their yoga practice. Justina wishes to inspire her students to find intention within their practices. She hopes to see you soon, and is always willing to chat off the mat as well.
What inspired you to teach yoga?
Justina’s interest in the anatomy and movement of the body was what inspired her to teach yoga. She was curious about why so many different teachers and styles of yoga would teach poses differently, and wanted to offer students a better understanding in their classes.

“Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity [Kitai]. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.” Will Smith as Cypher Raige in After Earth
