Justine believes meditation can bring an awareness of the stress and beauty in life and offer a space of peace, ease, and intimacy for personal and interpersonal relationships.
She believes Mind Oasis can create and support a community of practitioners in sharing wisdom, compassion, peace, and ease within the individual and collective consciousness. Justine brings an understanding of legal and business issues that impact spiritual community, and more than two decades of personal practice and teaching to the Mind Oasis community.
Justine’s work as a yoga and mindfulness teacher is grounded in a lifetime of intellectual inquiry, social justice activism, and community service. Her spiritual practices have supported her through the arduous process of becoming and being an adult. The thread of her spiritual practice runs concurrent to her practice of higher education and her personal work has been to understand how the two practices coalesce. Justine’s range of life experiences, from being a lawyer, working with undocumented children, producing news, living abroad, speaking Spanish, and working on legislative issues, to studying, practicing, and teaching embodied physical and spiritual practices yield her specific gifts as a teacher. A teacher of yoga and mindfulness since 2004 and a practicing lawyer with a Masters in Public Health, Justine is a creative, thoughtful, and ethical teacher. Justine is the Owner and Founder of Fanarof Law and Justine Yoga and the creator of Mindful Law Firm™, Mindfulness Based Mediation™, and Yogi Know Thyself™. With deep gratitude and joy she brings her range of practices and teachings to her community. Born in Johannesburg and raised in Texas, Justine speaks Spanish, loves road trips, camping and hiking, swimming (particularly in the ocean and at Barton Springs), and adventures with her rescue dog Lulu-Jai.
