Martha’s very first birthing experience was her sister’s and it was in that moment she decided that she would become a midwife. Unfortunately school and life got in the way and her love of dance and performing took her in a very different direction. She had been dancing professionally since her childhood with Nuebert Ballet at Carnegie Hall as well as The Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance and with Frank Hatchett & Gregory Hines at Broadway Dance Center in NYC. She went on to study Theatre, Dance and Movement at NYU Tisch School of the Arts receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1996. She then taught modern contemporary dance & movement and began teaching Yoga in 2003. Over the years she sought out and studied with the best teachers on the East & West coast...such as Sharon Gannon, David Life, Dharma Mittra, Ana Forrest, Alan Finger, Nora Day, Gio Moskios (Power Yoga) to name a few...when she finally took her first 200 hour training with Yogaworks in Southern California. After teaching in California for a few years and working for Yogaworks she decided to move back East. She then went on to take her Jivamukti training in 2010 at The Omega Institute and eventually began teaching at the Jivamukti Union Square studio later that year. She also went on to supervise The JivamukTea Café on the premises, where she became deeply involved in animal rights and Veganism. She also previously taught at Triad Yoga & Pilates in Irvine, CA...Freeman Yoga in Fullerton, CA...Devotion Yoga in Hoboken, NJ & with Beloved World Yoga in Jersey City, NJ. Encouraged by her students she opened her own Movement & Yoga space in Weehawken in 2014 called The Soul Garage where she was able to incorporate Yoga, Movement, and teaching the community about the benefits of a Vegan lifestyle. She has now continued her path in the healing arts with her journey as a Birth Doula and Breastfeeding consultant having received her training with well known Prenatal Yoga instructor, Birth Doula & Lactation Consultant Kimberly Weiss-Lewitt from Birth Arts International. And teaching again now at Bamboo Moves Yoga in Englewood, NJ.
