Marta was first introduced to yoga by her Mother as a young teen. Their time together was very sacred. As her relationship with God became more personal, her practice became more intentional in its focus on Jesus Christ. The Lord placed on her heart the desire to teach Christian Yoga. In 2010, she founded Dunamis Yoga after completing Yahweh Yoga training in Arizona and receiving her 200 hour certification as a Christ-Centered Yoga Teacher. To further her studies, deepen her practice and expand her knowledge of yoga philosophy, alignment and sequencing she received her 500-hour certification from Moksha Yoga Center in Chicago. While at Moksha she studied with such Yoga Masters as Aadil Palkhivala, Gabriel Halpern, Gary Kraftsow, Leeann Carey, Travis Eliot, and more. Presently, she is working toward her Yoga For All certification offered by Dianne Bondy and Amber Karnes. She is registered as an E-RYT500, YACEP Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.
Having experienced the power and healing virtues of living on live food, her passion includes introducing people to a plant-based lifestyle and coaching them through healthier choices. She has been known to positively affect the eating habits of even the most skeptical cynic. One sampling of her famous green drink, raw almond pate or delicious raw vegan salad and you’re hooked. In 2012, Marta received certification as a Health Minister from Hallelujah Acres, a Christian organization dedicated to helping others discover they can live healthy, vibrant lives free from sickness and disease by simply changing their diet. In 2013, she received certification from Alissa Cohen Living on Live Food as a Raw Food Chef Level I.
Lastly, Marta has a beautiful line of handcrafted jewelry called Pintata Dovima, combining her love of style and creativity with the work of her hands.
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. ~ 3 John 1:2
DUNAMIS: A Greek word used in the New Testament that means "power" or "force." Dunamis refers to that which manifests God's Power, His majesty, mighty works, ability and strength.
YOGA: A Sanskrit word derived from the root word "yuj" which means to yoke, join, unite, harmonize and bring together.
Dunamis Yoga is a spiritual discipline that draws us into the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, while strengthening our physical body and dwelling on God's Word. It is a practice of bodily alignment, deliberate breathing and total dependence on God. It is not a religion but a tool for spiritual growth, such as fasting, meditation and prayer.
Anchored in the Holy Scriptures, the goal of the practice is to bring glory to God. We recognize our connection to God's transforming power and join our body, soul and spirit together as instruments for worship of Jesus Christ.
With Christ at the center of our practice, our heart's intention is authentic praise for and adoration of Him. It is God who gives us life, health and strength. Every pose, prayer and breath is done in honor of the LORD.
.....Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your strength, and all your mind. ~ Luke 10:27
......we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power be of God and not of us. ~ 2 Cor. 4:7
