What have AWE participants experienced?
“I recently finished the 2018 AWE program with Create Karma. This program was truly
amazing. It was 8 weekends spread out over several months of community, yoga, and self
discovery. The guest speakers are incredible and with the guidance of Beth Martin I took my
mental, physical and psychological self to a new level. I recommend this program to anyone
looking to create more wellness within their lives.”
“I am relatively new to yoga and as a mentor, Beth inspired me in so many ways. She always took the time to check in and see how I was doing, and she always reminded me as a student that there is so much depth to yoga. I truly appreciate Beth sharing her passion for Ayurveda and always helping me find ways to deepen my yoga practice each and every day. She taught me simple ways to help better manage day to day stressors, relax, and most importantly she helped me develop a series of self-care practices I do each day. As my mentor she truly helped me learn to explore the gift of yoga and all its healing powers.”
