Therapeutic Assessment

In a private session, Justine will work with you one-on-one and assess your physical and structural issues. She will assist you in modifying and adapting common yoga postures to support, strengthen and help heal your unique & beautiful body.

Private In-person Session

Prior to your face-to-face meeting, Justine will review the answers to your Therapeutic Yoga Questionnaire. She will perform a physical assessment of your structural issues and provide specific modifications and adjustments to yoga poses to keep you safe from injury. She will provide a “Home Practice” created specifically for your issues based on her assessment of your injury/condition.

Remote and/or Skype Session

With today's technology, the ability for Justine to remotely work with individuals is made possible via Skype, home videos, questionnaires and phone calls. She continues to expand this side of her Yoga Therapy practice based on her unique abilities to listen, diagnose and adapt yoga to the needs of each person she works with.

"Justine Shelton has been my indispensable yoga instructor for the past five years. I have a severe degenerative lower back condition, and her professional care and knowledge have kept the pain at a minimum, my mobility and range of motion at the maximum, and fortified my general well-being. She is extremely knowledgeable about the human anatomy, and always works with an acute awareness to protect the student's physical weaknesses and vulnerabilities. Her most exquisite skill is to analyze a localized condition and approach it creatively on the spot. Justine has saved my life and kept me from an otherwise inevitable and debilitating surgery. What more can I say? She's the best."
