C-IAYT, E-RYT 500, RCYT
Yoga Therapist & Health Coach
As a result of her own health challenges, Marta became passionate about natural healing and complementary modalities, which prompted her to study at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and become a Holistic Health Coach. After graduating from the program, she helped her clients with nutritional and lifestyle changes.
Becoming a yoga teacher was the next step. Marta took her 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training from The International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre. She has also studied with Tara Rachel Jones, one of the pioneers of Children's Yoga, and received a 95-hour certificate to teach children, youth, and families.
Marta also completed a four-year course of yoga therapy studies at Breathing Deeply an IAYT-accredited school, where she learned how to apply yogic tools—postures, breath work, meditation, and lifestyle -- to be able to address an individual's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs.
As a certified yoga therapist (C-IAYT). Marta specializes in addressing stress, anxiety, chronic and autoimmune conditions.
She also took Mira Binzen's training and became an "Anxious To Awesome™" program facilitator, where she can combine her love for teaching children and families with a passion for therapeutic application of yoga.
Marta Shedletsky grew up in Poland, and in 1999 she moved to the United States. She has two adult children and lives in Yorktown Heights, NY, surrounded by nature with her daughter, husband, dog, and cat.
Marta strongly believes in yoga's healing and self-regulatory power and is passionate about introducing yoga to children, beginner adults, and those with limited resources. She teaches yoga and mindfulness in local schools and community centers. She teaches family and youth programs at The Sivananda Yoga Retreat in Nassau, The Bahamas, and The Sivananda Yoga Ranch in Woodbourne, NY.
