Martin Sittek is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with a Registered Yoga School (RYS).
Martin started his yoga experience in 2008 once he realized that it brings him peace, relaxation and healthy balance to his otherwise sedentary and stressful corporate lifestyle of then.
Starting first with traditional Hatha yoga classes, he later transitioned to more dynamic styles of Vinyasa yoga.
He slowly discovered a need for deeper understanding of other aspects of Yoga and that led him to quitting his job and traveling to India in pursuit of an overall practice of all aspects of yoga.
He never looked back.
After first completing his 200 TTC with Sampoorna Yoga School in India, that gave him a solid foundation to his self-practice, he continued his learning throughout his travels by attending another 200-hour Yoga training at Mahadevi Ashram in Guatemala.
The art of adjustment he learned with Kamal Singh of Tattvaa Yoga Shala in India.
In 2018 he completed 40hours Teacher Training Course with David Swenson in Italy. David is one of only handful of Westerners to have learned the full Ashtanga system as originally tought by K. Pattabhi Jois.
He attended workshops with David Robson at Purple Valley in Goa, India.
Some months of the year he teaches Primary Series and Alignment and Adjustment classes in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga teacher training programs of Sampoorna Yoga School in India.
He continues his studies with certified teacher Regina Elhers in India.
Needless to say, Martin mostly learned from his daily practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga which he has been maintaining for past years. The practice is his best teacher.
Martin has a great sense of humor that he incorporates in his classes.
He is also a photographer.
He facilitates, encourages and inspires his students with his devotion and knowledge of the practice. It is up to the students to use those tools in their practice.
