Student and Teacher Reviews

“Martin's Anatomy Training is fantastic! He is exceptionally skilled at deciding what is most important and as a result his teaching is focused, succinct, and clear. He has a wealth of knowledge and practical examples of how the body functions, as well as how to apply principles of yoga alignment to help clients move out of pain, improve posture, and learn techniques to stabilize their body in healthy patterns." – Betsey Downing, Ph.D., E-RYT500 – Certified Yoga Instructor
