Yoga Instructor/Owner
1128 West Pierce, 77019
As a certified yoga instructor, with advanced training, my focus is on alignment-based Ha-tha Yoga. My classes include a mix of Recuperative Yoga, strength building, meditation and breathing techniques. These four tenets build strength in an appropriate and sustainable way for my clients.

Although I go to the gym regularly, I was still having balance issues that were getting worse, I was loosing my confidence, Marti’s classes have developed my core strength, improving my balance and leaving me feeling strong and confident.

A native Houstonian, I am proud of my work with some of my hometown’s most respected institutions. When I am not teaching in my private studio, I can be found at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital where I am the first yoga practitioner in their Integrative Medicine Program. I provide guided meditation, breath work, and yoga techniques modified so that anyone can benefit regardless of their health.

What is Therapeutic Yoga?

It’s a blend of yogic technologies focused on supporting people in healing: restorative postures, gentle yoga, breath work, hands-on healing, guided imagery. TY is geared toward fitting yoga to the person, not making the person fit the yoga. It looks at an individual’s special needs and creates a healing practice.

Traditionally, in India, all yoga is for healing. TY is an evolution of what I saw was needed, and what could easily be brought into hospitals. I have worked to create a way of teaching people who are very ill, combining simple propping, meditation and SOMETHING ELSE.

These gentle, practices are deeply relaxing. They turn off the stress—or fight/flight response and turn on the parasympathetic, or rest/digest response. When we get calm, the body starts to focus on mending. Then it’s about going inside, meeting whatever needs healing. We mentally scan the body and find the tension, meet it with the breath, soften and explore. TY is a time of bringing compassion and breath to those areas, along with guided meditation and soothing imagery. I have seen through my work how vital it is to the healing process to turn off the stress response.

My clients include, those going through cancer treatments, stroke recovery, heart transplants, and pain management issues to more skeletal issues like frozen shoulder, sacroiliac joint pain, sports injuries, sciatica and Spinal stenosis. With my special certifications in Pink Ribbon Yoga and Yoga and Oncology I am able to help those going through Chemotherapy and in the recovery phases, meeting the special needs of these patients. I encourage these clients to not be defined by their illness. Yoga is empowering and allows you to work at your optimum-whatever level that might be today. All sessions are followed by relaxation and meditation.

I see yoga as preventative and I always encourage people to not wait until they have an issue to fix. Instead, start now in a consistent yoga practice that will support better choices in everything from what you choose to eat to how you hold your body. Yoga reduces stress and brings balance to mind and body, promoting wellness and healing.

I also teach yoga in Kinkaid School (to the students), Lakeside Country Club, Apache Oil, St Luke’s, Briar Club, and the YMCA.
