Quote: “Not getting it is getting it.”
As soon as Justin realized that you can actually make a career out of teaching yoga, he knew without a
doubt it was exactly what he wanted to be doing. Being a bass player for 27 years, Justin loves the simplicity and the foundations cultivated in a therapeutic hot yoga class. His background in music instruction and animal rescue work showed him just how rewarding facilitating the learning and rehabilitation process can be, and he finds that same process in the hot yoga rooms when he teaches.
“To see real positive change and to be a catalyst of it,” fuels his motivation for teaching. Justin’s biggest inspiration and role models in the yoga room are our own Leo Eisenstein, Joel Pier and too many more to mention. His teaching style, some might call, “South Philly” with a side of compassion and humor as he encourages his students to see that they’re tigers (not kittens!).
