Justine’s journey into yoga began over ten years ago, during her first year of college at UCSB. She completed her 200-hour training with Yoga Works, and after college began a career as an elementary school teacher, leading programs to bring Yoga and meditation to kids and teens.
After a back injury, Justine was drawn more and more toward making Yoga a larger part of her life. Through months of physical therapy and a personal study of body mechanics, she became very aware of the balancing and strengthening benefits of Pilates partnered with the freedom and spirituality of Yoga. Through her own healing, she has discovered great fulfillment and joy through helping others heal both spiritually and physically. Justine’s goal for her students is injury prevention, body awareness, and self-love.
