Justine Murphy, the founder and proprietor of Prasad, is a Yoga teacher, herbalist and professional photographer. She was born in Canada, but currently resides in Helsinki, Finland.

Justine has studied both Iyengar and Hatha yoga extensively, at the Iyengar Yoga Center in Victoria, Canada, and at Amrita in Portland, Oregon, where she completed her yoga teacher training with Sarah Joy Marsh. She has been teaching yoga for several years, or what she calls ”Slowga”, emphasizing a slowing down and moving toward a more primordial state of being, with the mantra ”slow it down”. She teaches classes but also gives private lessons, which take into account health considerations particular to the client, as well as diet and lifestyle patterns.

Her interest in and passion for the botanical realm stems from her time living and working on a farm, where she developed a practical and ever-deepening relationship with plants and herbs. Her knowledge of plants encompasses both the traditional European herbal, Native American plants, as well as the Ayurvedic tradition, which she has studied at Ayurveda Plus in Portland, Oregon.

Justine is also a professional photographer, specializing in commercial work, portraiture and fine art. Her company Photic Photographic can be accessed at: www.photicphotographic.com

PRASADin omistaja Justine Cederberg on joogaopettaja, ayurveda-konsultti ja yrttilääkinnän asiantuntija. Hän on syntynyt Kanadassa, mutta asuu nykyisin Helsingissä.

Justine kiinnostui kasvimaailmasta asuessaan maatilalla, jossa hän muodosti käytännöllisen ja yhä syvenevän suhteen kasvien ja yrttien kanssa. Hänen asiantuntemuksensa käsittää niin eurooppalaisen, Amerikan alkuperäiskansojen kuin ayurvedisen yrttilääkinnän perinteet.

Justine on opiskellut iyengarjoogaa, hathajoogaa, joogaterapiaa ja ayurvedaa Kanadassa ja Yhdysvalloissa. Omaa opetustaan hän kutsuu nimellä "slowga". Siinä korostuvat harjoittelun hitaus ja kulkeminen kohti omaa, alkuperäisempää olemistamme. Justine pitää sekä ryhmä- että yksityistunteja, joissa huomioidaan asiakkaan yksilöllinen terveydentila, sekä ravinto- ja elämäntapavalinnat. 

Ayurveda-konsultaatioitaan Justine kutsuu nimellä "Ayurvedaa pohjoiseen elämäntapaan". Hän pyrkii soveltamaan ayurvedan oppeja suomalaiseen kulttuuriin, ilmastoon ja länsimaisten täydentävien hoitomuotojen oppeihin.
