Martin was born and grew up in Germany and came to the US in 1999. In 2010 he joined Lifetime Fitness to lose weight and get healthy. Knowing nothing about yoga, he stumbled into a yoga class one day in 2012. He hasn’t done anything else BUT Yoga since then.
Inspired by his teachers, Aleeah Sheehan, Gary Heyer and Jason Hulshof he joined the yoga teacher training program at Lifetime in 2015. Since September 2015 Martin is teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yin Yoga.
For Martin, Ashtanga and Yin are the perfect complement to each other. The invigorating, active yang practice of Ashtanga and the deeply grounding Practice of Yin Yoga both share the same gateway to explore your inner self by simply using and observing the breath.
Martin enjoys showing students opportunities to explore their inner beings on a deeper level. He believes that through honest self-observation self-transformation and self-healing can be achieved, leading to happier, more balanced lives.
