Martha

We were very shocked and saddened to hear about the untimely death of Martha Heilland-Allen. She wasn't at Good Vibes for very long but she had positive feedback from our clients and was steadily growing her Saturday class here. She left because she needed some time out and although we were sad to see her go, we were very much looking forward to her coming back.

Martha really was a beautiful soul, our heart goes out to her family and friends.

Rest in peace Martha, namaste.
