  • With certainty (my) views on yoga have changed since finishing the training. Mainly how much I did not know….This was a wonderful experience and I am so glad that I gave this to myself.

  • In 2011, I completed my 200-hour RYT certification with Martha. The nine month process was a life changing experience. With Martha's gentle encouragement and personal commitment to non-judgment, I was able to grow and evolve in my own practice.
