“Find the love you seek, by first finding the love within yourself. Learn to rest in that place within you that is your true home.”
- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
My mission as a teacher is to create a path way for students to broaden their prospective, too see their own worth, and love themselves in a bigger way. I aim to help people see that they are not their bodies, but that their bodies are powerful vessels to make incredible change on the planet.
I guide in a way that gives the practitioner an option to see themselves from a different perspective. Starting by cultivating love within the self first. Growing, nurturing, and then watching the impact of that love and deep appreciation of self impact the way we love all other people. What you will experience in class is a strong element of meditation, visualization, and inspirational themes; paired with a physically challenging vinyasa flow. Through these elements we create big heart openings and many opportunities to see the self in a new way.

Justyn O'Neill is a 500hr certified yoga instructor and educator. She received her yoga certification in 2010 at the Frog Lotus school of yoga in Koh Samui, Thailand and completed her 500hr studies in 2017 with Radiant Life Yoga.
The path of yoga and meditation were pivotal in her recovery from an eating disorder and severe ulcertive colitis. She now actively shares those trans-formative qualities of the practice with students every week. Her classes often focus on healing the relationship we have with body, moving beyond limited perspective and ultimately coming to a place of acceptance and deep love for what is.
It is her intention that students leave class feeling empowered and appreciative of their bodies. The flow in class is challenging and unique to assist students in discovering both their inner and outer strength. Her classes create a safe container to effectively incorporate meditation and self study, as tools to guide students to eventually come to a place where they can deeply love the body and recognize that they are so much more.
Private sessions can be tailored to fit individual needs, whether they be physical, spiritual or emotional.
Workshops and Events
This has been coming very strong for me right now. As I have taken a big step back from external output to be present with what is unfolding from with in me, this is what I have been experiencing:
-reading sacred texts
- deepening my ritual rhythms
- Studying with multiple medicine circles
- Examining my relationship to teaching yoga
- Asking myself how I can be closer to the embodiment of my highest truth
- Learning how to be a parent
- Learning how to be a wife
- Learning how to be a daughter
- Struggling to be a friend
- Learning how to see myself without the reflections of others
- Listening to the new Nahko album on repeat
- Seeing my old ways of movement are not the only ways of movement
- Watching how EVERYTHING adapts and evolves, even my attachments
(The above is not a map for anything YOU should be doing. It’s a mirror of experience and you are already doing yours.)
Offering myself compassion and grace in all of the above unfolding as there is no map for doing this. There is also no standard I could live up to or compare myself with. I am fucking it all up AND doing it all with grace. I’m not seeking to do it better, my only desire is to be all the way in it.
Part of what has inspired me so deeply about Nahko‘s new album is his song “part of the problem”. The more I look to see where I contribute to each moments interaction, the deeper I offer myself and everything around me this continuous flow of forgiveness. I’m remembering Ram Das now... “Id rather be love, then be right.” To let go of the tension of trying to be “right” and find myself being love...I admit, I am part of the problem...forgive, forgive, forgive.
What have you been experiencing? Learning? Stepping away from? Leaning into? I’m hosting a virtual Satsang so that we can learn from each other’s unique experiences. We will be focusing on dristhi and cultivating awareness, while sharing our individual wisdom that has been rising.
