Integrating the Practice: Alignment, Arm Balances, Inversions

Saturday, Oct 14
11am - 1pm


Smart integration of arms into shoulders sockets creates a container in your body, allowing for effective and safe weight-bearing for arm balances and inversions. Tapping into our intrinsic core and learning to use our tailbone is another key alignment for stability. Get on your hands and go upside down while following alignment cues that will awaken the confidence and freedom within you!



Teaching Authentically 

Saturday, Oct 14
3pm - 5pm
*200-hour teachers can clock these hours as Continuing Education credits with Yoga Alliance


Bringing our authentic selves to every class we teach is essential. Why? Because yoga is something we live, not do. By tapping into your authentic self, you will be able to become a more relatable and accountable yoga teacher and being. Learn Asami’s secrets of authenticity and how she walks-the-talk each and every day of her life. Get inspired and make shifts in your daily life and learn how you can serve the world through shining your authenticity. 



Leap of Faith

Sunday, Oct 15
11am - 1pm


Interesting shapes (asanas) that we practice in yoga often come with back stories, and hanumanasana is one of it. Hanuman, the son of wind and the beloved monkey deity, is a representation of devotion and faith. Discover love and courage inside of you through storytelling and asanas in this class, where Asami will guide you to project the qualities of Hanuman. Open to all levels.



Yoga for Emotional and Mental Health

Sunday, Oct 15

3pm - 5pm


We live in such a fast paced world that we often don’t even notice that we have stress in our body, mind and heart. Science has confirmed that our brain has the capacity to change. We can rewire our patterns by tapping into our parasympathetic nervous system through breathing exercises, meditative yin and restorative yoga practices. Explore our ability to work with the nervous system and adapt and structure new neural pathways. Simple techniques like pranayama, long hold postures and meditation are great tools to rest our body and mind, and are what will be explored in this session.





About Asami Martens



Yoga stumbled into Asami’s life when darkness had taken over her smile, and offered her refuge. After a regular period of practice, she quickly realized her love for Yoga. The practice helped Asami look deep inside of herself, face difficult challenges in her life, and made her realize the limitless potential within her body, mind and spirit. Needless to say, Asami attributes Yoga to shaping the person she is today, and has helped her accept her perfectly imperfect self through self-love.

Asami’s classes are creatively sequenced and use intelligent alignment cues. She incorporates Yoga philosophy and storytelling to make her classes more than just a physical practice. Her aim is to make students realize that they also have limitless potential within their life to grow and shine their inner beauty. Her classes are challenging and aim to bring inner smile and joy to each of her students with her passion and love towards Yoga. Asami seeks to inspire and connect with others about Yoga through her blog and social media, helping students relate to the ups and downs of her own practice.

Born and raised in Japan, Asami currently lives in Montreal, Canada. She has also lived and taught Yoga in Sydney, Australia and Singapore. Asami has been teaching Yoga since 2009, and holds two, 200 hour Teacher Training from Santosha Yoga (Australia) and SBC Yoga (Bali, Indonesia). She is also trained in Yin Yoga and Prenatal Yoga. She is currently studying with Amy Ippoliti to deepen her knowledge. Asami loves to travel around the world and experiences new cultures.
