Martel Catalano is a 500-hour yoga teacher and life coach focusing on stress management. She also is visually impaired, living with a rare degenerative eye disease. In 2015 she began a journey of self-study to understand the origins of her chronic anxiety and depression and found that the introspection she witnessed through her yoga practice helped her to accept and deal with her condition. She recognized her calling to help others do the same and uses her skills to help clients find self-love and empowerment. She is the co-creator of Beyond My Battle™, an online community bringing people with all different incurable illnesses and disabilities together.
