Justyn O'Neill (She/her): is a 500hr certified yoga instructor and educator. Her mission as a teacher is to create a pathway for students to broaden their perspective, to see their own worth, remeber the truth of who they are and love themselves in a bigger way. Her intention as a teacher is to offer the teachings of yoga in a sacred way, upholding the reverence to the roots of the tradition. Justyn guides in a way that honors the feminine aspect of the practice. Weaving in wisdom form Shakti/Goddess traditions gives the practitioner an opportunity to connect with their own inner power and inherent wisdom. She invites students to challenge their perspective through questions. Questions that invoke depth and illuminate where we have limiting beliefs. We start by examining our relationship to the self first, then cultivate love for what we see. Then growing, nurturing, and watching the impact of love will deepen and impact the way we love all other beings. You can find Justyn teaching workshops along with weekly classes here at Greenway.

Instructor Bio

Mic (She/her/They): Mic’s trek into practicing yoga began when she was a kid, but it wasn’t until she was 23 that it took hold of her. Through her own healing journey, she re-discovered yoga after it gave her the ability to breathe. Once she was secure in her recovery, she wanted to move her body in a relatively safe and mindful manner. She understood yoga could teach her to pay attention to her body’s needs, so she signed up for yoga teacher training and got her 200 - hour certification. Mic didn’t plan on teaching yoga, but it happened because she wants to share with others the thing that has brought their life balance. Mic comes from a background of competitive dance, where in her experience, she did not often feel celebrated. When teaching, she uses her past experiences as inspiration to challenge students to feel connection with their surroundings, to acknowledge and celebrate their own selves, and to remain curious about how one can honor their body’s wisdom. To Mic, yoga is clarity and yoga is celebrating existence. She would like you to know, her favorite animal is a bumblebee.
