CHRIS MARTINEZ

Fitness instructor

After practicing yoga for three (3) years, my favorite yoga instructor advised me to get into yoga teaching. That was all the encouragement I needed as I quickly earned my 200hr, certification in February 2017.


For the past four (4) years, I’ve been teaching students from yoga studios, community centers, apartment complexes, and retirement communities.  In 2019, I earned my 500hr yoga teaching certification, and during the pandemic, I earned my “Gravity Yoga” certification in deep stretching and finishing up my NASM, Personal Trainer Certification. Along with my college degree from the University of California - San Diego,  in Cognitive Science, I incorporate a yoga practice that develops both mental, and physical health

From a culinary school in New York to hotel foodservice and corporate dining, from events serving thousands to private dinners for a few, I have put passion and experience into every dish I serve. The most important people I have ever served are. . . you and the next guests whom I have the honor of preparing a memorable experience for.
