I wish I could give ten stars to this shining soul. I’m sure in this area there is more than one qualified Yoga Coach, but I’m unsure you’ll find one with as much to offer as Justin. A beautiful person inside and out, Justin is clearly an expert in the fields of Yoga and Reiki. Beyond that, Justin exudes an energy you simply want to drink up. I began searching for a Yoga coach after my relocation to Los Angeles coincided with several other major life stressors. I wanted—NEEDED--to incorporate peace into my home. In addition, my busy schedule had me inactive for several months. It was time to get moving. Yoga was the answer. Scratch that. JUSTIN WAS THE ANSWER. While I’ve taken a handful of classes I would qualify myself as a beginner. And while Justin’s scope of knowledge and expertise is clearly expansive, he enjoys working with those just starting out. This is evident as you will immediately feel comfortable in his presence, regardless of skill level. At the beginning of each session he guides me through meditative breathing which clears my mind and prepares me to fully embrace the session ahead. During the session Justin demonstrates each move, both doing them beside me and breaking to assist in my form. As a Reiki expert Justin’s touch is not only comforting, but comfortable. There is touching involved, especially considering I’m a beginner and he’s a stickler for form (which I appreciate). His touch is purposeful. As he corrects my form he describes what he’s looking for. And if he needs to do it again, and again, you NEVER get the sense that he feels he is repeating himself. He is a natural teach and well versed in positive reinforcement. His touch is also therapeutic. As a Reiki master there are occasions where he may point out areas verbally, or physically, and explain why that might be a source of tension. He took great time during our first session getting to know me, not just in terms of my physical capabilities, but my psychological make-up as well. So as we work and we open various energetic channels pertinent to me, he points them out. This not only allows me to work on my yoga practice and meditative breathing independently of our sessions, IT ENCOURAGES ME. I also swear during our last session, as he was guiding me and made mention of relevant chakras, that there was warmth radiating from his hands. Zero direct contact. I will definitely request one of our sessions be dedicated to Reiki as a result of that experience. Justin concludes each session with more meditative breathing. I have found this so helpful in reducing the stress that surrounds me. So far I’m four sessions in with Justin and plan on continuing our work together. I have found our session’s fun, challenging, and flowing with great energy. Justin pushes me just past my comfort zone which I find perfect. Before he’s even kissed my dog and is out the door, I’m looking forward to our next session. They are often the highlight of my day. There have been a few times where after a session, I’d go about my daily life, and I’d be triggered by something overwhelming. I am finding it much easier now to re-center. Take stock of what’s happened. Breath. Open up my body using moves he’s taught me. Open up my heart. Stretch the tension out. Ultimately, I feel better physically and I’m managing stressors more effectively. With Justin I got exactly what I wanted out of my investment in such a professional. And then some. Simply put, Justin is a beacon of light who brings a positive, uplifting energy to anyone he comes in contact with. I cannot say enough good things. Note that his pricing is competitive and he offers package discounts. I firmly believe if you’re looking for a Yoga Coach you can END YOUR SEARCH HERE. Particularly if you’re a beginner, a woman living on her own, or a woman who doesn’t have the confidence of a Supermodel. Justin not only brings the expertise but he is someone you’ll feel very at ease with and appreciate having in your home. Thank you Justin!Oct 3, 2018
Working with Justin was amazing! I am an avid yogi and hurt my back recently hiking. I needed someone who knew how to help me heal, and he did just that! I hired him for private yoga and our session was a combination of yin, restorative yoga and he even included some Reiki! He’s new to LA and boy you better get him while you can because his schedule will be packed I’m sure! Thanks Justin!Jun 27, 2018Verified
A fantastic experience for both body and soul. Justin is amazing and puts you right at ease with his wonderful energy, creative a safe place to allow whatever to come up. Everything was organized in a professional manner and they seemed prepared for all situations, even with a few surprises for us. Definitely looking forward to the next one!!Jun 17, 2018
Justin gave me private tuition in New York. As a relative newbie to yoga and by no stretch of the imagination, still in my 20’s, I found the prospect of walking into a class quite terrifying! I was pretty nervous the first time he rocked up at my apartment at 7am, but really had no need to be. Justin is kind, caring, full of fun and brings a sense of lightness to his work. He gave me the confidence to carry on and to develop a great love for yoga! I also love the fact that Justin’s approach is completely holistic ... it’s not all about getting into that pose, but it incorporates breathing techniques, reiki and tools for meditation! He totally rocks ... so much so, that I signed up for his recent retreat in Hawaii - Paradise Found. It was a truly wonderful time, with a great group of yogis - all brought together through Justin! In brief he’s a rockstar and a beautiful person all at the same time!Jun 17, 2018
Justin is an amazing teacher and guide. Yoga and Reiki are both very personal practices, so it wonderful to work with Justin because he is really able to sense what your needs are and tailor your session accordingly. It is a gift that few people have, so I have been lucky to work with him. His vast knowledge and ability to share also make sessions with him really special.Jun 18, 2018
