Gary Martinez attended his first yoga class around 2012 and thanks to that wonderful teacher, and every teacher since, haṭha yoga asana has been an integral, growing aspect of hhis life. He was so inspired by his teachers that he felt compelled to follow in their footsteps and did so, completing a 200 hour yoga teacher training in 2014. He sees himself as a facilitator for raising self-awareness through the medium of natural world—including the natural world within. It is his intention to be a catalyst for others’ self-discovery and growth, by fostering a safe, playful environment for people to practice yoga asana while feeling comfortable and encouraged to modify their practice according to their own unique needs.
“I believe that every interaction we have with other living beings is important–that each of us holds tremendous power to affect those around us, and that that power should be respected and used wisely.”
