Why do people do liver cleanses in the spring? In Taoist philosophy, springtime is the season the liver is the most dominant. The liver is considered the wood element. Imagine fresh green buds bursting into leaves or tree roots breaking into the cold winter earth. As amazing as spring
by Marta Hernandez What can this simple everyday act teach us? Besides being a release of stress in the body and the most natural thing we do, yawning can teach us how to breathe and embody movement more fully. As an instructor and movement educator I’ve noticed many things abou
You truly helped me bring it in to the little things. Connecting to the strength to keeping movement small, really connecting to each part we were working on and connecting the parts in a very real palpable way. You reminded me of the importance of bringing it "in", slowing down, to a feeling level that was very real and gave a lot of strength back. Thank you so much for your very intentional and compassionate self. Thank you for the depth and breadth of your knowledge and making it very real and tangible and whole.
I love your energy, spirit, skill, experience and most of all - your sense of humour.
You are a bright ball of knowledge and I learned a great deal. :)
Thank you for sharing your time and energy.

Thank you Marta for sharing your knowledge with us. Not just within your Pilates background but with your knowledge of movement as well. I learned so much more than I had anticipated, loved your energy and your feedback. I will miss the stories and laughter and positive energy from our class. I leave inspired, energized and ready to teach some Pilates!!

I feel that the dancing Pilates is a healing methodology that is holistic and based in grounded movement principles. It is regenerative and enlightening and connects rhythms in the body to natural movement patterns. It creates a sense of trust in the wisdom of the body to discover itself in movement and develops an inner state of flow and entrainment to the pulse of one's being. Such a gift.
I just wanted to say what a fabulous experience it was to go to your Initiation 101 Pilates teacher training. I knew you were an amazing teacher but to go through this course with you was such a unique experience. I feel so many things but grateful comes to mind first and foremost. I cannot wait for the rest of the courses.

Marta is an exceptional instructor who is extremely skilled at performing Pilates, and enthusiastic to share her knowledge and help others acheive a higher level of functioning. The courses were very well organized, with small class sizes to afford appropriate feedback on technique. Each fundamental and exercise was presented with demonstrations and discussion about purpose, and where appropriate modifications and progressions were suggested.
I'm sure my hiring was facilitated by the coordinator recognizing Physicalmind and it also validated my decision to have chosen this school for training.
I just wanted to remind you that on top of training teachers, you are also building a community of likeminded people. I can't be grateful enough for that!
