Martha’s teaching style is characterised by warmth, sensitivity and inclusivity. Expect an accessible but energetic flowing class focused on the ashtanga sequence.
Martha teaches in west London and also for Ourmala, teaching Ashtanga-based yoga to refugees and asylum seekers of all ages and abilities. Working with this community has deepened her understanding and desire to share this practice and make it accessible to everyone. Martha tries to tailor the practice to each individual within their capabilities to allow them to find the ease and joy of yoga. She emphasises the importance and unity of the breath with movement to encourage a feeling of calm whilst enhancing one’s sense of grounding, strength and discipline.
Martha firmly believes that her practice is her best teacher as well as the interaction with her students. She has practiced since 2000 with Hamish Hendry in London and recently completed the teacher intensive with Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor. She has also completed the Advanced Yin training with Norman Blair and Yoga for PTSD with Heather Mason.
