*** "The Somatic Movement classes have had a tremendous impact on my posture and overall well being. Each session opens up new possibilities, a different part of my body and nervous system comes 'online'. This happens every single time, no doubt due to Marta's deep understanding of the human body and her care, compassion and humanity that radiate from her every expression. The benefits for me have been two-fold - the immediate experience of 'ooh, this is how I can feel, this is how I can move my body, this is how my body actually wants or needs to move'. In my head, I always follow this with 'why has nobody told me that I can move or feel this way?'...
The other life-changing impact of the sessions is in translating them to everyday life, to the way I move and perceive myself and ultimately the world around me. I do feel that without Marta's guidance, this journey would have been a much rockier one."
*** "I have been suffering from lower back pain and sciatica for a long time. I can't say that my pain is totally gone but after doing these classes regularly I definitely feel much less pain and much more flexibility and I can do things that I have not been able to do for a long time. And they are also very relaxing!"
*** "I have immensely enjoyed doing Marta’s online classes for the last 2 years or so since she started. Her genuine interest and passion for what she teaches shines through during every session and is infectious, creating a genuine enthusiasm in myself to understand what she is conveying and to explore via the movements she guides the class through. I am somebody who has done extensive physical training throughout my life and this has resulted in definite patterns of movement and ways of using my body, along with restrictions, tightness and injuries that commonly manifest as a result of the lifestyle I have led. Participating in Marta’s classes has enabled me to identify many areas of restriction and tension and release them. I’ve also found that becoming aware of these things has allowed me to work on changing them by paying attention in every day life. I feel I have become more effective and efficient in the various activities I do, which has increased my enjoyment when doing them."
*** "The Somatic Movement classes are innovative, informative and they always feed my curiosity. I enjoy these weekly explorations as they help me to connect with the patterns, restrictions, eaze and pleasure in my body. Every class is different but the outcome is usually the same which for me is a sense of calm, greater connection between different parts, new discoveries and insights about how I move, less restrictions and tension in some parts of my body and an overall feeling of being in one piece"
