My name is Martina, and I'm from the Czech Republic. Professionally, I'm a Pilates, fitness, and dance instructor, as well as a mindfulness coach and travelista. My journey began with ballroom dance competitions, leading me to NYC for a dance career. Despite exciting experiences like performing with Marc Anthony in Today Show or Le Reve in Las Vegas, I discovered my true passion lay in teaching. I pursued certifications in Pilates, personal training, barre, lagree, and coaching - NLP, complementing my bachelor's in nutrition. Now, I focus on empowering women through movement and mindset coaching, combining travel with confidence-building programs to encourage solo exploration. Having lived and worked in various cities globally, I've seen how societal pressures affect women's body acceptance and self-love. I understand the struggle firsthand. My goal is to help women prioritize their physical and mental well-being, emphasizing self-love and acceptance. Through my work, I guide women to redefine confidence, incorporating movement, fitness, nutrition, and self-love to unlock their unique inner beauty.

my core values

INSPIRATION – sometimes we all need a little inspiration, or a little shove to know we are not alone in our journey. Connection and inspiration from those around us (humans, cultures, experiences) is often the push we need to overcome our own obstacles; OPENNESS – maintaining an atmosphere inclusive to all races, backgrounds, religions, levels and ages and being compassionate towards everyone’s individual journey; and most importantly FUN – keeping things real with copious light and laughter, and never taking life too seriously!
