August Teacher Spotlight

Marty

Marty brings over 30 years experience working with individuals and groups in a wide variety of training environments. His talent is his ability to communicate precisely so that students understand and are able to implement. Applied to Yoga, this enables one to practice correctly, learning and improving in a structured environment.

“I’ve always been involved in the empowerment of people. It was usually in the domain of having them discover possibilities for themselves that they weren’t able to see before. After beginning to practice Yoga with some regularity, I realized that I was able to quiet my mind and focus on what was going on right now, without the distractions that seemed to often accompany whatever it was that I was doing. My commitment is to provide people with the possibility of what Yoga can be for them.”

Marty completed his initial 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher Certification from Peachtree Yoga Center, as well as another 200-hour RYT Certification from Prajna Yoga in Santa Fe, NM. He is a 200-hour ERYT and is currently studying with Tias Little for his 500-hour certification. He has an MA and BA in Psychology from California State University and UCLA. He has studied Mindful-Based Stress Reduction at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and offers such programs to organizations. He has also been trained in Mindful Yoga Therapy for veterans with post-traumatic stress, and currently teaches at the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program. Marty also offers “Yoga Coaching for Life” as a one-on-one program at Vista Yoga.
