Martha Shea

Martha has been practicing and teaching yoga since 2000 and received her first 300 hour yoga certification with The American Yoga Academy that same year. In 2001 Martha received her yoga certification from The Yoga and Healing Center in New Jersey with Wendy Grosse, who specializesin Soul Sweat Yoga. In 2003, Martha was certified in Prenatal Yoga with Janice Clarfield at Kripalu Yoga, and in 2008, her Yoga Ed Certification in Ontario.
 
Martha has been inspired by David Life and Sharon Gannon and has attended several intensive training and summer camps with them. This year, Martha completed her Baron Baptiste Level 2, and is currently working on her certification with him.
 
Martha’s mat is a vehicle for creativity and freedom in her life. She counts her blessings on her mat. It is a place of pure space where she connects to her center, her strength and her authenticity. Yoga has brought Martha through some very challenging times in her life. She believes in many ways that it has saved her. It reminds her constantly that she is always stronger than she thinks she is, and it reminds her to be present in her moment, her life, one breath at a time.
 
Martha’s favourite poses are arm balances. Arm balances combine freedom and strength. You need to draw on your core, your truth before you can find the courage to fly. They remind you that anything is possible – all you have to do is break the branch, trust and fly into endless possibilities !!!
A practice of strength and stretch. Begin this class with a dynamic yoga practice with weights. Building strength with a series that stays similar from week to week, to allow you to remember the postures and exercises with the weights. The last 15 minutes of the class, slow it right down with yin yoga. Longer held deep stretches to wash away tension and stress.
