Way beyond 5 Stars! Justin is truly an amazing and intuitive soul who is a gentle and encouraging teacher, yet pushes yogis to their next level. On a physical level, his classes provide adaptations for varying levels of difficulty, and they are well-balanced and prepared; often combining asanas with mudra and pranayama practices. He is SO encouraging and positive throughout class and is not shy to make adjustments that bring students more correctly or deeper into poses. But the yoga experience with Justin goes way beyond physical/athletic goals of strength and flexibility. Justin’s spiritual side draws great intention into his yoga teaching — so you leave feeling “worked out” on both the outside and the inside. Mind clearer, heart open, and with a sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. Justin is super accessible throughout class and goes on the journey with you. A studio favorite to anyone that has practiced with him, including me :)
On a Reiki level, I’ve recently had one experience with Justin (which was INCREDIBLE) and it certainly will not be the last session. I had known Justin as an instructor and friend already, so there was a lot of trust there going into it. But that isn’t a requirement — it was just my personal experience. Prior to the session, he was completely professional and thorough in explaining was Reiki is, what he would be doing during the session, and established a space where I was encouraged to be open and honest in order to let the energy flow. The session was very moving and very powerful — I could feel its effect for days after. And similar to his yoga classes, Justin goes on the Reiki journey with you — so you feel supported and loved throughout. A truly beautiful experience.
Justin is an incredible human being, teacher, and reiki master. If you have the opportunity to practice with or work with him — TAKE IT! xo
