My story

Pilates in my roots, yoga in my heart, travel in my soul. 

As a child, I always practiced sports (basket, tenis, swimming, ballet…). I loved movement and I found my passion in gymnastics with 10 and always loved dancing.

Lots of years later, life took me to certify as a Pilates MAT instructor in 2011 and decided to leave my event manager career, the office life, to travel the world and find my purpose in life. Lived in Thailand for a while, where I taught Pilates and learnt other disciplines among which Yoga and Thai massage.

Traveling and teaching around the world took me to Costa Rica, where I certified in 2014 as a Yoga Instructor (200hrs YTC) with Frog Lotus Yoga International. The nomad life took me to Lanzarote, a magical island where I became mum and you can find me most of the time now teaching Pilates & Yoga.

 

I am so happy and grateful to have made of one of my passions my job. Pilates is my roots, that keep strong and stable, grounded, aligned, centered. Yoga is my heart, my passion, my evolution, my soul, where my creativity explodes in creating flows that strength, relaxes or stretch my clients. Always different, yoga taught me to flow with life, to accept, disconnect, reconnect, align, disalign. Listen. Feel and Bliss. Yoga keep teaching me everyday. Yoga and travel are my soul, because the freedom and happiness of traveling is one of my passions.

The Style of my pilates & yoga classes in Lanzarote.

My Pilates sessions remain true to Joseph Pilates’ original system of body conditioning. These exercises will help you tone your whole body, strengthen your core, align, improve back problems, gain balance and flexibility, among others.

They can be adapted to your particular needs and are followed by restorative stretching. A powerful class that will make you feel grounded, stronger, flexible and in full control of your body.

My yoga classes are Vinyasa Flow, with Iyengar influence. Adapted to your level and needs, the classes have a strong focus on breath-movement coordination, linking body, mind and spirit in a well rounded practice that will make you feel great, calmer, lighter, bliss. A perfect balance of movement, awareness and connecting with yourself. 

Wanna try both? Try Fusion Flow!
The power of Pilates and the stillness of yoga. A complete and really good practice to achieve a strong, healthy body with a peaceful mind.

    Marta was an excellent addition to our team here at Palmar Tent Lodge. Her experience in pilates and yoga allowed her to offer our guests a variety of classes, which were well received every day. She was always very helpful and friendly, both in class and outside, and conducted her classes in a professional but laid-back way. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed having her around, as did we! I would highly recommend taking her class or bringing her on as a pilates/yoga teacher to anyone thinking about doing so.

    I spent 6 weeks on Koh Samui last summer and was lucky enough to Find Marta’s number on the internet. I had practiced Pilates before but with Marta’s amazing routine, I became fitter – and felt better – than ever. She came to our sala to teach me Pilates twice a week and I really miss her fantastic ability to both motivate me to continue that little extra further and her way of explaining the exercises to actually make them sink in. This way I was able to gradually do more advanced exercises than ever before and I felt that I made serious improvements. She has the best knowledge of Pilates I have come across! Lucky those who have the opportunity to exercise with her!!! 🙂

    I met Marta on Lanzorite for 2 sessions of pregnancy yoga. It was rejuvenating, relaxing and I’ll look forward to meeting up with her on my next trip.

    I spent a wonderful week in July in Lanzerote. I really enjoyed Marta’s excellent personel training. With Yoga and Pilates I found relaxtion and my body feels different as before. I recommend this experience and hope I can visit her classes soon. Marta’s classroom is easy to reach in Tahiche, I enjoyed the view on the vulcanoes from her terrace. Greatings from Germany.

    Hi Marta.

    Myself and my wife (with two young children) will be in Puerto De Carmen from 6th November for 10 days and would love to combine a mix of private and group Pilates and Yoga sessions for both of us. My wife has basic yoga and Pilates experience and I have been doing both for a bit longer. Both looking for either group or private session every two days or so to try and accelerate our yoga and Pilates practice.

    We would be grateful if able to let us know about possible class and availability for the days in November.

    Kind regards
    Dan
