I found Marti Ewing through the Yoga Alliance teacher finder. I’ve been an RYT-200 since 2013, and needed my continuing ed credits. I was struggling with my health and my teaching, and did not want to face any classes, at all. I only expected to get the requirements over with, and I did not expect to find a new teacher that encouraged me to be better to my body. After a few classes, I was stronger and my upper body pain has gone away completely.
Fluent in Yoga therapy, Marti teaches you how to take care of your body on and off the mat. She shares her anatomy knowledge, and expertly advises safe ways to deepen your practice and teaching.
Marti has a feel for the class’s abilities and maintains a pace for beginners to certified teachers to ensure that all are maximizing their potential. You will learn gentle to challenging techniques in variations suitable for different types of bodies.
I can not say enough great things about Marti’s classes and her teaching methodologies. It has been my path to better overall heath.
