About Recuperative Yoga with Marti


Recuperative yoga recognizes that not every pose is for everybody, and puts the spotlight on muscle functions and body mechanics. Simple exercises and yoga postures restore balance, strength, and flexibility. This very specialized practice is good for those recuperating from an injury or illness or athletes recuperating between games.  Recuperative yoga is good for anyone just needing a deeper understanding of a functional fitness yoga program, incorporating mind, body, and soul. 

The advantages of this practice can be seen in faster recovery times, longer strides, and better range of motion. If you have pain in your body Mart's blend of yoga, trauma therapy, and meditation can bring balance to your emotional and physical well-being.  Her practices are based on her training, experience, and scientific evidence.
