Holly Martzial is a Vinyasa Yoga instructor in Portland, Maine. She was first drawn to yoga upon discovering how the practice simultaneously energized her body and calmed her mind. As life got busier, Holly found herself craving more time on her mat. After about five years of steady practice Holly yearned for a deeper understanding of what was happening in her mind and body when she practiced yoga.
Holly took the first step toward immersing herself in the study of yoga in 2011 when she completed her Assistant Training at Prana Power Yoga in Cambridge, MA. and began regularly assisting classes beneath renowned teacher, Sue Jones. She loved enhancing the experience for the students through hands on assisting, and it was through this that Holly realized she wanted to become a teacher. Holly has since completed her 200 hour teacher training under the guidance of Jacqui Bonwell, as well as a Restorative Yoga Teacher Training at the Breathing Room with Margo Rosingana.
Holly’s comprehensive classes build from the ground up, emphasizing safe alignment while maintaining a fun and playful environment. She guides her students through a funky flow to energize and challenge the physical body and cools down with restorative techniques to calm the mind, all synced to an awesome soundtrack! Holly’s motto in life and in her teaching is: “Do YOU!” When you come to her class you will be encouraged to listen to your own body and allow your experience to be as individual as you are.
