About Martha K. Malina
Marty began studying yoga in her late 40's. Marty has been a massage therapist for over 25 years and came to yoga looking for a way to care for her own body. In 2014 she completed the 200hr yoga teacher training at the Himalayan Institute in Honesdale, PA and began teaching at Yoga on Walnut.
Marty currently teaches a beginner level class on Thursday evenings and a Teen/Parent class on the last Saturday of each month. She is also available for individual sessions.
“My feeling is that yoga can be accessible for all ages and body types. I encourage each student to honor his or her physical capacity and help to modify or enhance poses as needed. But yoga is so much more than just physical! Each pose offers an opportunity for self-exploration and enhanced awareness. And although we practice together, every class is each student’s personal practice.”
Marty has been a Nationally Certified Massage Therapist since 1992 and holds a Pennsylvania Massage Therapy License (MSG#000410). She is a graduate of the Florida School of Massage and is a professional member of the American Massage Therapy Association.
Marty’s non-massage education includes a Master's Degree in Counseling and Human Systems from Florida State University and a Bachelor's Degree in Music Therapy from West Texas State University.
