Arlene Ganir-Martinez is a certified Kripalu Yoga Teacher and a member of the Kripalu Yoga Teachers Association. She enjoys teaching yoga to diverse populations and invites her students to use their breath as a way of healing and meditation. Arlene's yoga journey began in 2005, curious about what yoga was and hoping to get healthier. Her practice blossomed because of nurturing and supportive yoga teachers at Yoga4Ewa in Hawaii and Savannah Yoga Center in Georgia. Yoga became a sacred space for Arlene to heal and nourish herself from her career as a social worker. The more dedicated she was to her yoga practice, the more present she could be for the youth and families she worked with. In November 2010, Arlene attended yoga teacher training at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Lenox, Massachusetts, and studied under Devarshi Steven Hartman and Megha Nancy Buttenheim. At Kripalu, she learned how to provide a yoga class experience that can be transformational by integrating body, mind and spirit. Arlene hopes that you will join her on the journey of yoga, so that you can discover what yoga means to you.
