The Yoga Connection has 2 locations (Smithfield & 2nd location in Goldsboro). Smithfield, NC located in a new, state of the art facility on the 3rd floor overlooking the Neuse River. We have been of service to the community since 2005, bringing alternative and complimentary forms of health and wellness to the people of Johnston and surrounding counties. The second location is in Goldsboro,NC. Our primary style is function over form. We strongly believe that yoga, whether practiced as asana, or in its full spectrum of asana, pranayama and meditation, is to improve and/or maintain the physical and emotional well-being of each person.
Our classes are of varying levels, from absolute beginner to the advanced. We offer teacher trainings in: 200 hour yoga certification; 300-hour advanced training; Yoga for Senior; Restoration Yoga. Our many workshops include: anatomy, class design and implementation, the 8 limbs of yoga as described by Patanjali, chakras, and many other specialty practices.

She is also a Duke Integrative Medicine trained health coach, mindful awareness meditation instructor and has completed Carol Krucoff and Kimberly Carson's Yoga for Seniors in 2009. Martha brings these specialties together to offer skills for better health and well-being to all students.
