Our Instructors

Marta Blaze: STOTT™ trained Certified Pilates Instructor – 7 month comprehensive course, including anatomy and injuries and special populations.

I did a Franklin Covey course in 2001 during which you are meant to write what your passions are. At the time I was a Biz Dev Mgr for a dotcom but my passion was definitely in the health industry. I knew I wanted to transform people’s lives, but I didn’t want to work with people who were sick.  My posture was far from great, so at the urging of a friend I took my first Pilates Class 2 months later, and by the end of that year I was fully certified.

I worked at Stott Pilates and from my home studio for the next year. At that point I gave birth to Maya Papaya.  I took the leap and left Stott to start my own full time studio.  I’ve loved every minute of it ever since!

I provide Beginner to Advanced  Pilates Programs on Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and Barrels, as well as stability ball, fitness circle, weighted balls, medicine balls, weights, Thera Bands and foam rollers.

I also provide Pilates exercises that address a broad range of physical challenges.

I am able to customize a client’s workout to address particular weaknesses, conditions, postural problems or injuries (shoulder problems, neck and shoulder tension, hip, knee and ankle issues, back care, fibromyalgia, arthritis, pre natal and post natal.)

I love what I do, I love that I am able to help people feel better, be stronger, and feel like they are getting so much more than just a workout.  I feel blessed to be where I am; loving life and having a blast!
