The seeker is one who is hungry for the truth, who desires liberation, who is fearless to see themselves. I offer this school of yoga as a loving container for the Sadhaka- the spiritual seeker who is on the path of remembering. This school is intended to be a sanctuary for those who's hearts are pulled by spirit, who desire a deep connection to the sacred and are hungry to learn authentic yoga practices.
May the unfolding of our paths and collective remembering contribute to the happiness and liberation of all beings. - Justyn Little Bird Morning Owl
My mission as a teacher is to create a pathway for students to broaden their perspective, to see their own worth, remember the truth of who they are and love themselves in a bigger way. My intention as a teacher is to offer the teachings of yoga in a sacred way, upholding the reverence to the roots of the tradition.
I guide in a way that honors the feminie aspect of the practice. Weaving in wisdom from Shakti/Godess traditions gives the practioner an opportunity to connect their own inner power and inherent wisdom.
I invite students to challenge their perspective through questions. Questions invoke us to go deeper and illuminate where we have limiting beliefs. We start by examining our relationship to the self first, then cultivating love for what you see. Then growing, nurturing, and watching the impact of that love deepen and impact the way we love all other beings.
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. She continues her studies here in the cities and in India on-going.
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 who they are.
Workshops and Events
Creating Sacred Space and Cultivating A Home Practice
When we start to see the Divine in all things, all of our surroundings become sacred. During this 2hour workshop we will discuss practices to attune our vision to see the sacred in all things, tactics to create space in your home for practice and cultivating a relationship with the energy of the Divine that is always with you. Together we will inquire with questions:
What does it mean to hold space for your practice? What does it mean, as a teacher to hold space for students? How do we integrate our surroundings when it is outside of our preference?
We will also discuss our experiences with how space holding has shifted because of zoom
Sunday March 14th 12-2pm

Virtual Satsang- Iluminating The Yogini
Yogini - often understood in the west as a female practicing yoga. While this is true in direct translation, the term Yogini has deeper meaning then how we commonly understand it. Historically Yoginis show up in a wide range of energies. From the semi-divine to the dark and mysterious. In all expressions the manifestation of this powerful Shakti energy is largely mis-understood.
During this Satsang we will discuss what is a Yogini, where the feminine has been hidden in yoga and practices to find balance between the masculine and feminine energies in your Sadhana.
When: March 20th 1:30-3:30pm
Where: Zoom (see link below)

KRIYA YOGA AND THE GUNAS
Kriya yoga, is often referred to as “the three limbed path”. It consists of the sutras; Tapas, Svadyaya, and Ishvarapranidana. This concentrated path inside of the larger umbrella of the Yoga Sutras, is intended for the moderate practitioner as way to accelerate practice. In our session together, we will dive deeply into the explanation of each individual sutra and how they interplay together.
Tapas – Intensity with the intention of spiritual liberation.
Svadyaya - Self-study inspired by the scriptures.
Ishvarapranidana – Surrender to the Supreme.
The Gunas are the frame work for all of nature. Everything in existence is subject to the cycling of arising (rajas), sustaining (sattva), and dissolving (tamas). We can observe this cycling everywhere we look; from the seasons, to our thoughts, to an object, or to our own physical bodies. Additionally, each of the Gunas carries their own proprieties. We will examine the properties of each of the Gunas; where they exist in our life experience and how they interplay with Kryia yoga.
March 26th- 28th
This course is offered via zoon and is a total of 10hours towards your 300hr training or continuing ed.
Training schedule : Friday 6pm-8:15pm
