About Mark Bennett
My Name is Mark Bennett, I developed an appreciation for body movement at an early age while participating in various athletic endeavors. After completing 2 degrees at The University of Texas at San Antonio, I reconnected with my 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, I went on to establish a successful training business in San Antonio, Texas. I began to explore other forms of body movement within the fitness world. Recognizing the value of the principles offered by Pilates, I went on to become a licensed provider of Fletcher Pilates. Delving deeper into the mind-body connection, I began exploring yoga and the balance it brought into my life. I went on to complete 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Yoga in Austin and Level 1 and 2 AcroYoga Teacher Training with AcroYoga Montreal.With many clients asking for advice in nutrition, lifestyle coaching and general health and wellness, I recognized the need for a more holistic approach to health and fitness within the personal training industry. I began to offer a full wellness service to my clients through the concept and company of Organic Movement (OM). My unique style of training and bodywork incorporates conscious awareness to core and spinal stabilization while gaining strength and flexibility through balanced movement. Complete with massage therapy, tailored yoga teaching, Pilates, personal training and more, I provide services to a wide customer base to ensure their health and wellness. I am now approaching a point in my career and life where I have the freedom to offer my services and knowledge to clients of a broad demographic. I strive to always learn and be a student of life, so that I can be a better teacher and trainer to those around me. OM is a positive solution to finding better health in your life!
