Marty Time

My practice began when I finally became willing to quit fighting life.

Way to long stuck inside the prison of my mind, I was looking outside for a quick fix, if I was smart enough I would figure it all out. Victory, just around the corner, was mine, or maybe it was the next corner....

The definition of insanity is madness. Keep chasing definitions and you will come up with words like foolish and absurd. And yeah that is my mind when caught up in my ego. Chasing. Anything and everything. Ludicrous.

Yoga hasn't magically changed me into perfect person, or given me the perfect life either. I am not enlightened, as those who know me well will attest. Yoga does give me the opportunity to practice reverence in the present moment. And in that moment, the opportunity to consciously make choices. Yoga does create health both physically and mentally.

The Shelter provides a safe place to practice checking inside in a world that is constantly pushing and pulling us outside. Yoga challenges us to use our body, to explore our mind's reactions to the sensations created. With a warm room, some great people and sweet tunes, it's a great workout. Life, and our edge are constantly changing. Yoga just is. Everyday we roll out our mat, We get to take action while we practice acceptance and kindness towards ourselves. Then maybe, on a good day, we can share that out in the world.

Whether I am in front of the room or have my mat rolled out next to you I look forward to sharing the practice with you.

Namaste


Marty Time instructs the following:
  • Fusion

  • Shelter Still (yin) PREVIEW CLASS
  • Our yin style class is a simple series of restorative poses held extended periods of time. Attention to the breath gently stretches the body, and longer holds naturally allow a opening of the body deep into the connective tissues. Taking time to reflect and be in our body, we discover a depth and a greater range of motion, while appreciation leads towards a profound acceptance that comes through this practice of surrender and letting go. A long and luxurious Savasana will help to seal in the benefits of this healing and re-energizing class.

  • Shelter Steady

  • Vinyasa

  • Slow Flow

  • Yin
