Offering the best of Yoga & Mobility Training
Movement mapping has made such a difference to my life, I'm not in pain and haven't had any flair ups since starting this journey with you - it's amazing!
Thank you so much 😃
“It has been a privilege to attend Justin’s Movement Mapping Teacher Training course in London. I am so grateful for Justin and the knowledge that he shares in the course. It is so apparent that his Movement Mapping system is so well thought and it’s the outcome of his lifelong research and passion. Intelligently put together, it combines elements of Yoga and other movement disciplines, human anatomy and locomotion, psychology and evolutionary biology and views the student as a whole. There is so much content packed in the course, science based yet simple and efficient. In the training there was fluidity in the conversations about the connections of mind and body and the relevance of the practice outside the studio. Justin’s ethos and philosophy underpins every aspect of his teaching and the Movement Mapping system. The training worked a treat for my own body and was very effective, but also gave me a lot of tools that are directly applicable in my teaching. I am excited to delve deeper into Movement Mapping and start sharing it with my students. I think that every movement practitioner should have this knowledge as a foundation of their practice."

Justin is an incredible and inspirational individual. I spent three days with him learning the moving mapping techniques as well as the science and theory behind it. It’s clear he is incredibly passionate about movement mobility and people’s well-being.
The weekend made me realise so many things about human mobility diet otherwise taken for granted. It’s no exaggeration to say I’m thinking completely differently about my movement practice having spent time with Justin.
I highly recommend anyone remotely interested or connected to any form of movement practice to experience the movement mapping system Justin has developed. You will not regret it.
Thank you very much for a great workshop.
Love your passion, skill and humour!
I would like to be an instructor and am really looking forward to start training in order to being able to teach.
The feedback would be that it was too short!
Great group of people.
Safe journey and hoping to meet again!
Hey Justin - Glad you made it home safely.
Thanks for a brilliant weekend - so much interesting material to get my head around and what a great group of guys to learn with. You clearly have dedicated a lot of time putting it all together and it all makes complete sense to me - it's amazing how much we can trap ourselves into moving in a certain way - even when it feels so unnatural. Thank you for thinking outside of the sagittal plane (your movement humour rubbing off on me) and sharing your stuff!
You can put Kirsty Smith on the certificate.
My boys are both asleep (a rare treat) - so I'm currently planning my class tonight - incorporating the upper limb everyday essentials, for an upper body strength focused class. Will let you know how things go as I will be practicing for sure.
Thanks again - will also keep you posted if I can make March - lots of stuff going on in my world at the minute, but will do my best to come along as the level 1 was fantastic!
I felt a huge knot at the bottom of my neck and between my shoulders was untied and let me loosen my arms and neck.: it almost felt weirdly unnormal, like not me..! Thank you so very much. Looking forward to our next session.

He’s been a full time teacher of Yoga, Meditation and Interdisciplinary Movement for 10 years and for the past 5 years has owned and operated Rise Yoga & Movement Arts Center in Saratoga Springs.

Rise Yoga aims to honor traditional yoga practice while fluidly integrating interdisciplinary movement and modern research on the brain, body and nervous system. A formative experience in his teaching approach came at the Burning Man Festival in 2014 where he and his wife found themselves practicing in a giant open space with world class dancers, martial Artists, acrobats and other advanced practitioners. The practices went on for hours and the atmosphere was relaxed but focused. What stood out most was the feeling of shared respect and studentship that created an unrivaled sense of community. Justin aims to create this atmosphere for learning, respecting and contributing to each other’s individual growth.
Justin began his yoga practice learning the Ashtanga Vinyasa method, Vinyasa Flow and studying with his spiritual yoga teacher Raghunath. Over the past few years his physical practice has grown to include progressive gymnastics, capoeira, animal locomotion and FRC Mobility Protocols. He has studied with Ido Portal and Tom Myers (Anatomy Trains author) and this year was certified as an FRC (Functional Range Conditioning) mobility specialist and FR (Functional Release) Spine specialist. His passion is in mentoring other teachers pointing them in the direction of their personal expertise and leading with their highest values.
He currently lives in Guernsey, a small Channel Island between France and England with his wife Camacha, Daughter Veda and new born son Remy. They operate local a yoga studio and movement space Rise Yoga Guernsey: riseyoga.gg
