 Vitalize Your Life!

A Meditation Workshop for Women Living in the World

Saturday April 13 – Saturday May 4, 2019 

8:30 – 10:30 am

At The Red Bird Meditation Loft * 1001 Park Lane * Stevensville

You are a complex and deeply intuitive woman, wearing many different hats.  Caregiver, mother, entrepreneur, student, partner and friend. It’s easy to be pulled under by all of the demands on our time and energy, leaving us feeling drained and unmotivated.

After a long, cold and snowy winter, welcome in the vitality of Spring in your outer and INNER world. Gain access to the well of vitality as you unlock tensions and stuck energy. Sleep improves, your relationship with yourself blossoms, as your relationship with others becomes more fulfilling. 

We will salute our Senses in easy to enjoy meditations, followed by a deep understanding of our

wise motions of life called the Instincts. 

Welcome yourself  HOME

 Meditation Secrets for Women by Camille Maurine and Lorin Roche is a wonderful support for this practice.


 “I loved our group of women and finally understanding our instincts gave me insight I have been looking for. I loved every minute we spent together and gained so much strength. The best way to explain this is I learned to turn a war dance into a love dance!”   V.C.

Courage replaced fear! Martha fostered a warm, loving and safe place for me to explore meditation with profound insight.    G.W.

The “strengthening your inner roots” meditation course with Martha is a 6 weeks journey into your own instincts; to notice them, to encourage them and to live them.  I feel myself paying attention to the things that foster love in my gut as well as my heart. I keep noticing when moments in my life bring a deep seated tenderness to the surface. I will continue to practice daily what I have taken with me after the course ended and want to go further and deeper. CK

Meditation 101:

A 6 week exploration into the fascinating, fun, healing world of meditation. 

I’ve been a meditator for about 8 years, off and on. I liked it but I didn’t love it. I was meditating because I knew it was good for me. And then I discovered a style of meditation that fits me like my favorite sweater. The perfect weight, the perfect color, the perfect yarn. And after 2 years of meditating in this style I feel happy, joyful and have fallen in love with life!

You have already experienced moments of spontaneous meditation when you have witnessed a beautiful sunset, looked into the eyes of your grandchild or enjoyed a fantastic meal with friends. In this workshop we will remember what we love to do and then build skills to deepen your inner peace. You have access to this peace whenever you want for meditation happens one moment at a time.

Your health will improve, your sleep will be more restful, you will manage your stress in a healthy way.

Meditation 101 has been a complete surprise to me. I expected the same as usual – ‘still your mind, if you think of anything put it in a bubble and let it float away so that your mind is completely blank’. Then beating myself up because I’m not enlightened enough to do this! Not so with Martha’s meditation teachings. This is all about relaxing and thinking; releasing and healing; planning your day and reviewing later in the day. I have found voice for my inner self that fuels my outer self and vice versa. One informs the other. My inner self has given me ways to handle different situations that used to make me anxious, angry or frustrated. Giving myself only a few minutes a day to meditate has made me feel more empowered, yet softened. I recognize things that I love to do or experience and the sacredness of life. In short, I enjoy life and feel a renewed excitement for each day.         MF
“I am very glad that I took Martha’s Meditation 101 course.  Even though I’ve been practicing a form of yoga meditation for years, Martha’s methods and insights have helped me be more comfortable and happy with my practice.  It’s a grounded, user-friendly type of meditation, and I would enthusiastically recommend it for anyone, no matter their previous experiences with meditation.  Especially if they previously tried meditation and felt that they couldn’t do it, or that it just wasn’t for them.”  PSE

We will meditate together. I will guide you some of the time and some of the time you will meditate on your own. It will be easeful, relaxing, interesting and healing.

Monday Morning Meditation with Martha. What a delightful way to begin your week. I would love to share this instinctive style of meditation with you.

In the spring of 2019 I will be finishing my 200 hour Radiance Sutras Meditation Teacher Training. I am filled with a deep gratitude for the brilliance and knowledge that my teachers have shared with me. Dr. Lorin Roche and Camille Maurine are the authors of several books on meditation and breathing.
Meditation Made Easy by Dr. Lorin Roche will be a nice companion to Meditation 101.

In-Depth Study and Advanced Training with Martha Piersma

Fall 2019 in Missoula, MT


In depth study and advanced training with Martha Piersma RYT500, YACEP and Yin Specialist.

Yoga as we practice it in the West is a dynamic, active practice designed to work only half of our body, the muscular half, the “yang” tissues. Our bodies need stability and strength. But as we age our flexibility diminishes and our vitality diminishes if we are not actively stressing our yin tissues.

Yin Yoga is is a static way of being in yoga poses for longer periods in order to better nourish the deeper connective tissues and organs. It is a perfect opportunity to soften and cultivate your mental state as well, allowing the energy body to redistribute vitality throughout our system.
