Results @ Gini Martinez

Here are some of the results being experienced after doing the work:

“Two things I’ve noticed since Ass Class: 1) I hardly take any OTC pain reliever any more because I don’t need it, and 2) I’ve turned into a back sleeper. I sleep better and the “ongoing” problem with my right shoulder has disappeared. It was like a 2-for-1 deal!”

I started a new workout regimen with gusto, but soon noticed my knee had a bit less gusto than my mind. Because I wanted to keep working out consistently and intensely, I knew I needed to look after the way my body worked.

In just 4 sessions, I got visualizations for my knees, my pelvis, and this crazy cool muscle from my mid-back to my femur called the psoas. And now, the pain in my knee is gone! More specifically, my knee works with me, not against me now.

I can kettlebell swing with almost no tension. When I’m done swinging, I’ve not only gotten in a great workout, but I still feel relaxed and like my body worked as a unit to make it happen. I can walk for longer periods with ease. But best of all, I can envision how my bones, muscles and joints move together in a spiral, in a SYSTEM, and simply knowing this makes me feel empowered. My mind and body feel like they’re working as a team. I no longer see my body as ‘other’.”

~ Reese Spykerman

 

“I understand how my joints and bones and muscles work together. I know when my knee is sore or my ankles are crackly, my feet probably aren’t aligned. Doing some embodiment exercises or making a point to walk more mindfully fixes the issue so my ankles don’t pop and my knee stops hurting. I now power walk in a way that exercises my muscles without asking my bones and joints to do things they weren’t designed to do.”

I feel more at ease and patient with my body. I enjoy a new confidence.

In the ass class I learned a great deal that I wasn’t aware of regarding hips and pelvis, shoulders too. I was surprised and delighted because it took me to a new level of self-awareness with my exercise and overall daily movement. I’m now more apt to listen to what my body is telling me by how it feels, how it works. I now realize that it can physically change in an instant. I didn’t realize I had so much resistance about that until your class. Often I can correct my posture or something about how I’m walking and ease the problem in that moment.”

~ Margit Mehne

 

“I was able to increase my activity level without feeling like I needed to protect my injury because I was more conscious of where my limits were and where I had more room to actually move and recreate how I used my body. My new relationship with my hip also allowed me to move beyond warrior tendencies of “proving myself” as a runner and began to open up my possibilities to use my body in coordination, collaboration with the results I desire – strength, health, movement.

“Gini is a trailblazer. Her work is amazing, and so visual! She taught me an exercise to loosen my tight shoulders and release the tension in my neck. Her direction is often illustrated with colorful drawings and her words evoke visuals in a way that I immediately respond to. I had only completed half of the exercise, for one shoulder, and already the locked up tension slid away. By the end of the session my shoulders were looser, my breathing was deeper, I felt grounded, and a beautiful calmness washed over me head to toe. And, as an added bonus, because my shoulders released, my heart center opened right up. This learning has greatly improved my daily sitting practice. It has also been a welcome addition to my daily morning yoga practice. Whatever you have going on physically, she has the super special Mojo to help you see and learn so you get—and make—the connection. Not only that but you can instantly integrate it into your awareness to make better choices and free yourself from the pain in your way. Gini *is* leading a Movement Revolution. Be a Revolutionary!”

“There’s something about Gini. Sass, leadership, approachability — she’s got it in spades, plus the biggest heart that can fit inside a person so petite. The name ‘Embodiment Advocate’ is so right for her. As busy people in this fast-moving age, we often forget that we are more than a brain and two thumbs on our iPhone. As a digital entrepreneur, I spend most of my day sitting down, curled over a laptop, flicking my eyes from screen to screen. Gini gets me back into my body. She helps me feel human again — original human, not human 5.0. And from there, I get to remember how to take care of myself, gain new data for decision-making, and all around have a better experience here on the planet. With two feet on the ground and everything else in alignment. I like it.”

~ Abby Kerr

 

Working with Gini has transformed how I show up in my body and as a result, how I show up in my life (personal and professional).  Something as “simple” as being more aware of how I sit and how my pelvis moves allows me to sit and stand in a more grounded way.  I feel more confident and I’m able to be present in a totally different way.  And I’m not a newbie to my body – I consider myself more connected to my body than the average person.  As a bodyworker, I spend hours working with other people’s body’s and I also receive a lot of work.  Even so, Gini’s insight and perspective have added a really important layer of awareness that was missing for me prior to this.  She’s clear, to the point and how she explains things helps me easily connect the dots and add important details to my body map.  She doesn’t over complicate things, but she gives me the key information that allows me to experience my body in a new way.  I can’t recommend this enough for helping you to be in your body and show up in your life in a strong, powerful and aligned way.”

“Before working with Gini I didn’t realize how much my words were actually working against my movement. After working with Gini I have a better awareness of my words as well as asking myself ‘How does that feel?’ ‘Do I like that or want to make a further change’. It allows me to not only converse with my own body much more effectively and efficiently, but my clients as well.  Gini truly walks the walk and we all can benefit from her teaching and positive embodiment of movement.”

~ Laurel Silverman

 

“I have taken countless workshops (of all sorts) where the instructor is on an ego-trip and isn’t approachable, open, or feeding me any new information.  Gini’s approach is relaxed and she puts you at ease while really delivering the information. I felt like our group class was a little party, for curious people who wanted to play and experience new things.

My favorite part of working with Gini was experiencing how my discs work and the movement of the vertebrae. I *knew* all of this before, but saw it in a whole new light.

As a result of working with Gini, I feel less tension and stress in my shoulders, which is always a challenge for me, especially since I teach several advanced group classes throughout the week.  I am also more aware of how I am using my own body as I teach, which I often ignore.

I feel I am better able to give my clients permission to stop TRYING SO HARD. Yes, they want to feel that the are being challenged, but I’m more aware of how they are being challenged, and if it is working towards their goal(s).”

~ Laura Dixon

 

“As a fellow somatic instructor, I find myself checking in with Gini when getting out of my comfort zone. She has always been available to help me think of new and exciting ways to achieve my goals as a teacher. Her clarity and ability to grasp the root of an issue makes her someone from whom I can always learn.  Gini’s approach to teaching is very gentle, creative and fun. Most importantly she brings a thoughtful sense of humor to all situations.

One of Gini’s greatest attributes is being able to take any situation and help make sense of it, not by telling me what to do, but by gently guiding and offering suggestions that have helped me come to my own conclusions, in my own way, in my own time.  How refreshing!”

~ Susan Deutsch

 

“Using the skills I learned from Gini’s workshop, I am able to draw more correct form and alignment out of my clients with a lot less struggle!”
