Martina Biljan H.Ba, RYT, RHN Registered Yoga Teacher and Holistic Nutritionist

Overwhelmed. Lonely. Stuck. Rock bottom.
 
Maybe you feel like you’re floating around day-to-day thinking WTF am I actually doing here? Or maybe you feel like you’ve tried everything, exhausted all your options and yet nothing has changed.
 
Your mind. Your body and especially your heart feels….EMPTY.
 
What if you were able to walk past the frozen food or snack aisle in the grocery store with confidence. Knowing what your body really needs.
 
What if you could start your workout or walk on to the yoga mat, feeling empowered instead of insecure.
 
What if you felt so in tune with your body and your needs that you could be a true advocate for your health, whether it’s the doctor or choosing the right foods.
 
What if you knew you could handle whatever shit storm comes your way next, with ease, freedom and a sense of knowing.
 
Wherever you’re at in this moment it’s time to get you back to that place, because you deserve it.
 
Hi, I’m Martina. Whether it’s through movement, food, work, or family life, I want you to feel comfortable experiencing life in your own body.
 
In case it wasn’t obvious enough, I’m the founder of Martina Biljan Wellness and Lifestyle Mentoring. I’m a Yoga Teacher (500-RYT), Registered Holistic Nutritionist (RHN), Meditation Coach and Corporate Wellness Consultant and I’m here to guide you. I help people like you, get back in their bodies to improve their daily experience. I also help companies and their employees foster a corporate culture of managed stress and increased productivity through my Wellness Mentorship programs.
 
Now a Teacher…but Always a Student
 
I have gone from zero to hero – with food, exercise, spirituality, love, appearance, work, and I’m sure there are more I am forgetting. I used to be an all-or-nothing, type-A, extremist. I would practice ALL the yoga, eat only organic food, dress like a hippy, meditate, and then judge myself for not doing enough of it all. Then, when I had had enough of that, I swung completely the other direction on the pendulum and crashed. I crashed HARD. Maybe you can relate to what happened next... I would drink all the wine, eat pizza until I hated myself, binge watch shitty TV, drive past the gym, and avoid contact with any human that was bettering themselves. And, you guessed it, judge the shit out of myself for not being perfect. I was doing things for the sake of doing things, because I thought I was supposed to.
 
Sometimes we’re eating burritos & sometimes we’re eating bananas
 
It wasn’t until I surrounded myself with a loving community that I realized, I didn’t have to be perfect. Yoga teachers can have a glass of wine. Nutritionists can sometimes eat ice-cream. Meditaters can watch Netflix. I didn’t have to be the perfect version of any of the avatars I was trying so hard to be, and I could actually enjoy myself.
 
That’s why I use yoga, nutrition, meditation, and mentorship, to help people create a lifestyle that makes me feel balanced, empowered, connected and free.
 
Bottom Line: It’s about creating a lifestyle that’s sustainable.
 
One where you feel calm, rested, grounded, supported by your physical body, confident, and happy.
 
One where you indulge without shame. Where you embrace the place you’re currently in.
 
One where you can find your way and be in balance through all of life’s detours, potholes, blown tires and being stuck on the side of the highway situations.
 
One where you embrace your body. Your vehicle throughout life. You can always do some minor improvements, the but the core frame stays the same.
 
You aren’t on a lease and you can’t trade it in for a new one. It’s the vehicle that takes you on that journey from birth to death, and I want that ride you take to be kick-ass!
 
Put it this way: You’re the driver, I’m Google maps. Follow my direction to find balance in your body again. Are you ready to take that ride with me? Let’s get started with a free 15-minute chat so you can begin navigating your balanced and sustainable life.

Philosophy

Through my own journey of yoga and nutrition I have developed a strong appreciation for the connection between mind, body and beyond. Above all, I value balance. This is where I am today - trying to balance it all out the best that I can. This is what I hope to help my clients achieve, wherever I can help them do so. Let’s look at the whole picture, give permission to take care of ourselves, and find a bit of balance everyday.

"Life is a balance of holding on and letting go" - Rumi

1. Awareness

"Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have." - Danielle LaPorte

2. Acceptance

"Imperfections are not inadequacies; they are reminders that we're all in this together." - Brené Brown

3. Action

"If we are creating ourselves all the time, then it is never too late to begin creating the bodies we want instead of the ones we mistakenly assume we are stuck with." - Deepak Chopra
