Justine is our Yoga instructor and has been practising Yoga for over 20 years. She was introduced to yoga by a teaching colleague and can still remember that blissful feeling of the 'stretch and relax' that she experienced in her first class. Since then she has learnt from many inspiring teachers, including Christine Howitt and Padmadarshini from Manchester Buddhist Centre and Janine Hurley of Creative Calm in Prestwich.
She has experienced a variety of types of yoga ranging from high energy and intensity Astanga to quiet and grounding Yin. Her personal preference is a calm class which will enables her to enjoy a whole body stretch as well as gentle strengthening, with a focus on connecting to the breath. Justine says "this type of practice enables me to leave my thoughts and stresses behind and find some peace in this busy world. I then feel relaxed, refreshed and generally calmer."
This is exactly the experience she aims to offer her students. Her classes are accessible to all bodies and minds and are suitable for complete beginners to experienced yogis. Justine offers teaching which can be adapted to individual students and the message throughout is that yoga is not about how you look, it’s about how it makes you feel!
And in her own words, Justine describes the effect Yoga has had on her life - "Yoga has brought and continues to bring positive benefits to my life; my body, mind, spirit, emotional health and general well-being. It is an honour for me to share my knowledge and experience of Yoga with students and enable them to experience all Yoga has to offer."
