She is a Certified Essential Somatics® Movement Teacher, and a certified teacher of Hatha Yoga (YTT200) and Yoga for Scoliosis. In addition to her extensive training and study, Martha’s expertise comes from her own journey of balancing a love for dance with the realities of living with a surgically ‘corrected’ spine due to scoliosis.

She is the founder and director of Twisted Outreach Project for Back Care and Scoliosis (TOPS), a Canadian-based non-profit that provides a range of holistic and creative approaches to working with back care and scoliosis.
