The practice of Yoga has been handed down from teacher to student for thousands of years. Sarah would like to thank the teachers who have walked the path ahead of her and have taken the time to instill teachings that make this practice accessible to all who are willing to begin simply by paying attention to the breath. Sarah first became fascinated by yoga as taught by her teacher Nydia Darby who seamlessly and compassionately blends the practice of yoga with the expertise in human movement held by physical therapists. This influence and compassionate approach is woven into the type of classes taught here at the studio.
Marti Ewing, Certified Yoga Therapist, ERYT- 500 hours teaching experience
Certified in Recuperative Hatha Yoga since 2009
Recuperative yoga recognizes that not every pose is for everybody and puts the spotlight on muscle functions and body mechanics. Simple exercises and yoga postures restore balance, strength and flexibility. This very specialized practice is good for those recuperating from an injury or illness or those managing a chronic problem. It also benefits athletes recuperating between games.
Marti initially sought out this practice to help her sister who is disabled. She soon realized classes for those with special needs were very limited. After studying yoga under Julie Byrd, she found that she was able to adapt the practice to meet her sister’s limitation and found that her sister slept better, was less depressed, and had better range of motion. This is when Marti became passionate about teaching people this practice to create more balance in mind and body to those that would not normally have access to this kind of modality. Her teaching incorporates strength building and stress reduction techniques, along with restorative practices and a good dose of playfulness.
When Marti is not teaching group fitness she can be found coaching others in healthy lifestyle choices in her private practice and a variety of other clinical settings. She believes everyone can benefit from a customized practice that recognizes the needs of each body. Marti enjoys guiding others toward a lifelong practice of optimum body strength, injury prevention and stress reduction
