yoga therapist/yoga teacher
Justine Ferguson is a yoga therapist and yoga teacher, as well as a licensed school teacher in the states of Massachusetts and California.
In 2004, Justine began her yoga journey and continued her study of the body-mind connection in California. She became a certified yoga teacher (RYT 200 hours) in 2007. She began integrating yoga and mindfulness into her elementary classrooms, middle school classrooms and P.E. classes; and offered instruction to her adult colleagues and school community.
Justine moved back to her native state of Massachusetts in late 2013 and received her facilitation certification from Learning from the Heart program (learning subject matter utilizing movement/yoga). She found Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy (PRYT) in 2016 and dove into her yoga therapy training. She completed over 600 hours of training and became a certified yoga therapist (600 hours) through PRYT in the winter of 2018. Since 2017, she has offered private individual Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy sessions and has facilitated trauma-informed group yoga classes, an 8-week stress management program, and silent meditative walks around Walden Pond.
Justine is excited to introduce yoga therapy to the Saldare community under her business name Trinity Yoga Therapy. She will facilitate a direct experience of present-centered awareness and assist each client in the practice of developing a deeper relationship to their body and listening to its messages.
What is yoga therapy?
The best way to describe yoga therapy - in particular, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy - is the following description from the school’s website:
“Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy is a holistic healing art. Using age-old yogic and modern therapeutic approaches to deepen awareness and presence, [it is] able to help others accept themselves more fully. Out of this acceptance they are more easily moved to embrace the opportunity for change, growth and enhanced well-being in body, mind, emotions and spirit.
A Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy one-on-one session […] consists of practitioner assisted yoga postures and a dialogue process that is client-centered, open-ended and non-directive. The client is facilitated through an experience of [themselves] in the present moment. And whatever happens in the present moment — physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually, finds richness in relationship to the bigger picture of how that client is being in the world in daily life — work, play, family and relationships.”
