Justine Shelton

Pahoa, Hawaii
United States

Co-Founder of the Yoga Vista Academy. Justine Shelton, C-IAYT is a Certified Viniyoga Therapist, graduate of the American Viniyoga Institute under the direction of Gary Kraftsow. She is the Co-Founder of the Yoga Vista Academy and author of their ‘Gentle Yoga for Low Back Care’ specialty certification program. Justine specializes in structural yoga therapy, specifically spinal disc injuries, back pain management, as well as joint therapy – including prehab and rehab for replacements. Her passion is working with people who have different forms of catastrophic illness, helping them to manage their condition, minimize and cope with pain and, most importantly, helping them to realize they are not their condition. She encourages her students to practice where their body is right now, allowing for the constant change and growth that comes with a dedicated practice. One of the reasons she loves Yoga is that there is always more to learn, always room to grow…this, in addition to her love of anatomy and physiology, keeps her curious mind in learning mode. Justine’s gift lies in conveying in layman’s terms the healing powers of Yoga. She lives in Opihikao, Hawaii with her husband and two rescue dogs.
