Kick off the new year by befriending one of the most important aspects of your health–your breath! Breath has a profound effect on our physiological and mental systems because it carries prana, or life force energy. The ways that we habitually breathe both reflect and enforce habits of musculature and mind. In this class we will consciously work with the breath in asana postures and through pranayama to link breath and movement in ways that calm the mind and enliven the body. Each class will include emphasis on breathing technique, a series of gentle asana practices, and closing pranayama and meditation offerings. Taught in the style of Sri Krisnamacharya and TKV Desikachar, this gentle class will be adapted for diverse abilities.


The instructor:Martha Ryan

Martha’s journey with yoga began eight years ago, when she moved to Delhi, India and began studying yoga in the tradition of Sri Krishnamacharya. She completed a 500-hour RYT yoga teacher training with Saraswathi Vasudevan at YogaVahini in Chennai, India, and she continues to be guided by unwavering mentorship and community support. Since 2013, she has also practiced various meditation techniques including Vipassana and Transcendental Meditation.

Martha’s goal in teaching asana (postures) and pranayama (breathwork) is to help students develop relationships between: you and your practice, your body, your breath, and your teacher. Her gentle classes center the union between breath, body, and mind by beginning and ending with pranayama. She has taught both individuals and groups in a wide spectrum of settings such as studios, assisted living centers, homes, and schools. She is never not amazed by the transformative power of yoga!
