Name: Haley Martell
Favorite yoga pose: Wheel. It’s challenging and there are days that I can’t do it. But when I can, it’s the best feeling!
Yoga is... a total lifesaver. It reminds me to slow down and not let life stuff overwhelm me.
What do you love most about yoga? I love how there is a sense of community and togetherness, yet our practices are our own. There is no comparing yourself to others - we do what feels right for us.
What fuels you? My mom and 2 sisters! We are extremely close and they are there for me through all the ups and downs.
My NON-guilty pleasures are…antiquing, baking, going on long motorcycle rides, preferably to the ocean...
What’s your yoga story? How did you start practicing? I was in high school, the first time I took a class. I loved it but at the time wasn’t ready to develop a serious practice. Over the years following, it was never super regular, but I would take a class here or there and always had a soft spot in my heart for yoga. It wasn’t until I was visiting family in Austin,TX that I dropped into a class that ended up being life-changing. I returned home and knew I needed this regularly in my life. Then, I found Mighty.
What's the best advice you've ever received? That it’s okay to ask for help when you need it! This was a big deal for me to learn.
