Justin grew up in a very tight-knit family and small community in Northern Florida. Raised with traditional values – love, respect and honesty – Justin’s passion has always been to be a positive influence and of service to others. After moving to Miami, he soon found his way into an industry perfectly matched for his Southern upbringing: hospitality.
Having grown up in a one-stoplight, farming town he was overwhelmed by the diversity that South Florida had to offer – not only in its people and their cultures, but also by the variety of directions that were available to explore. He discovered yoga through his enrollment in a popular South Beach gym and found himself immediately captivated by the powerful and transformative benefits of a consistent practice.
Justin applied for a Yoga Teacher Training scholarship through the Namastacy Corporation. He was chosen to receive the scholarship based on his potential to represent and teach the best of Yoga. He earned his 200 hour RYT training with the Aananda group at Red Pearl Yoga.
Justin feels a deep sense of reward and value by providing support and assistance, acting as a resource to others-whether in his career or in working with his Yoga colleagues and students.
“We live in a modern world where we are constantly faced with stresses that hinder our ability to lead a fulfilling life. I want to lead others to a place where these burdens can be released, where they can choose to let go of distractions and bring their awareness and acceptance back to the present moment.”
