Mark developed an appreciation for body movement at an early age from various athletic endeavors. After completing degrees in Psychology and Anthropology at The University of Texas at San Antonio in 2007, Mark reconnected with his love of fitness in the gym and soon moved into personal training. Finding a passion in helping people improve their lives through health and fitness, Mark went on to establish a successful training business in San Antonio, Texas. Mark began to explore other forms of body movement within the fitness world. Recognizing the value of the principles offered by Pilates, he went on to become a licensed provider of Fletcher Pilates. Delving deeper into the mind-body connection, Mark began exploring yoga and the balance it brought into his life. He went on to complete 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Yoga in Austin and Level 1&2 AcroYoga Teacher Training with AcroYoga Montreal. With many clients asking for advice in nutrition, lifestyle coaching and general health & wellness, Mark recognized the need for a more holistic approach to health and fitness within the personal training industry. Mark met his partner Hayley Tennyson in early 2013 and they began collaborating to offer a full wellness service to their clients. Together they created the concept and company of Organic Movement (OM). OM encourages a holistic approach to health, wellness and conscious organic lifestyles through yoga, movement, living foods, mindfulness, meditation and Permaculture.
