The harder you work,
the luckier you get.
Along with his large dedication to acting Justin started practicing yoga. Originally he admits he stepped into the studio to join the “fad” for the physical benefits. Quickly after that he got hooked to the yoga practice as a great opposition to the performing world. Finding the ability to strip away the ego and thoughts of body image or rejection, if even only for the 75-90 minutes in the hot room. After building a healthy personal practice Justin decided to train with the Moksha/Modo Yoga co-founders Ted Grand and Jess Robertson as well as other senior teachers in Bahia, Brazil. He now teaches in Toronto and across the country, wherever theatre brings him.
Now, Justin spends his time between Toronto and New York as he works to expand his career and explore exciting and new heights.
