“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.

"Beating your wings and feathers,you broke free from this cage. Rising up to the sky you attained the world of the soul." -Rumi

 

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.

SATURDAY SATSANG AND GONGFU TEA

The Kleshas- Understanding The Obstacles To Yoga

In this sacred gathering we will explore the 5 Kleshas (obstacles to yoga) and the impact they have on our practice. What are these mind barriers and how do we navigate moving through them? Where do we unconsciously allow our life decisions to be influenced by them? What practices can we invoke to help move beyond them, and how is the experience of them an integral part of our karma? 

 

During our discussion we will enjoy the experience of traditional Gongfu Tea Service poured by Madison Rubenstein. Madison is expertly trained in the art of tea service and her presence with the tea adds to the prayer of our dialogue.

The Gunas and...The Way Things Are

"Sattva, Rajas and Tamas, the tree qualities of nature

bind the immortal soul to the body during ones life on earth" - Bhagavad Gita 17:5

The Gunas are the fabric of what makes up our known world. Everything in nature is subject to the flow of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. Understanding the Gunas helps us understand nature, emotions, thoughts and the cycle of birth and death. In this lecture/discussion we will explore the qualities of each of these 3 stages of experience. Looking deeply into how they arise in yoga practice, internally in the self and in the external world. We will also apply the awareness  3 Gunas to grow our ability to gather the energy of these forces and cultivate deepening in meditation practice.
