Back in July of 2015 as the idea of bringing quick, effective, meditation breaks to people in a mobile unit was conceived, we knew exactly who we wanted the voice of MeditationWorks to be. At the end of our first meeting, Justin Barnes became our voice and program director.
Justin is no ordinary teacher. He’s been teaching yoga and mindfulness for over fifteen years, with a large and steady amount of devotees showing up daily to hang on his every word. Each yoga class he teaches has mindfulness woven into its framework, as well as time for quiet contemplation. His classes are true works of art, and mindfulness is his medium.
Justin is in the In Hear studio sound booth often, recording sessions for MeditationWorks meditators.. It’s a collaborative effort, with the entire MW team going over every word and nuance until it’s just right! The core sessions grow with the program, providing the initial structure, followed by ever-increasing time for the practitioner to take meditation into their own hands. But his soothing voice is always there for guidance.
Justin really shines when it comes to our weekly takeaway messages. He is given a word or a short phrase and turns it into a thoughtful, inspiring message that everyone who meditates in our mobile unit really looks forward to. Wait until you hear them!
Justin is a regular guy like most of our participants. He’s an employee and a business owner, so he knows ALL about work stress! He’s married to the beautiful Janelle, and together they have a one year-old son Gavin. He likes to hike, loves his music, and the beer aisle at Kroger is his happy place!
Gather up a few co-workers and take a listen to his calming voice in our distraction-free dedicated space. We guarantee you’ll have a better day, and after 8 weeks with our program, you’ll have a happier, healthier life!
