Martel is a young adult who was diagnosed with a degenerative retinal disease in her late childhood. Soon after learning about her future of gradual vision loss with no known cure, she began to witness acute anxiety and depression. Martel eventually found solace through yoga and has completed 200-hour and 300-hour teacher trainings, as well as training in restorative yoga. Martel’s mother and her work have had a profound influence on her in the last year, as she explores the cross-section of the human mind and Buddhist philosophy and brings this to her class.
