Organic Movement (OM) was created in 2013 through the meeting of Hayley Tennyson and Mark Bennett. OM encourages a holistic approach to health, wellness and conscious organic lifestyles through yoga, movement, living foods, mindfulness, meditation and Permaculture. As a living foods chef, yoga teacher and founder of the yoga and Permaculture retreat, The Yoga Forest, Hayley's passion lies in sustainable green living and yogic lifestyle practices. With a successful training business established in San Antonio, Texas, Mark's unique style of training and bodywork incorporates conscious awareness to core and spinal stabilization gaining strength and flexibility through balanced movement.

With many clients asking for advice in nutrition, lifestyle coaching and general health & wellness, Mark recognized the need for a more holistic approach outside of the general fitness scope. Together, they realized they could combine their skill-set to offer a full wellness service to their clients. Soon, the concept of Organic Movement was created. Combining certifications in fitness, Pilates, yoga, AcroYoga, massage, Permaculture and well-rounded experience in living foods, nutrition, bodywork and yogic lifestyle coaching, OM is your solution to finding better health in your life.

Hayley has a deep passion for conscious green living and yogic lifestyle practices. Fueled by a desire to create a more sustainable worldview, Hayley studied Permaculture with the founders Bill Mollison and Geoff Lawton. Fascinated by the similar concepts fundamental to yoga philosophy and Permaculture practices, she established the yoga and Permaculture retreat, The Yoga Forest, by Lake Atitlán, Guatemala. The Yoga Forest is a retreat centre and learning institute helping to improve the lives of others through a commitment to personal, spiritual and community development. In 2011, Hayley completed 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with her mentor Yogrishi Vishvketu in Rishkesh, India. Exploring playful connections with others in yoga practice, she completed Level 1&2 AcroYoga Teacher Training with AcroYoga Montreal in 2013. Hayley possesses a wealth of culinary knowledge from working as a private chef for seven years for people all over the world. Passionate about creating a holistic approach to nutrition, Hayley began yogic lifestyle and nutrition coaching helping people to make informed nutritional decisions incorporating the use of Superfoods and living foods as part of a balanced lifestyle and diet. Hayley met her partner Mark Bennett in early 2013 and they began collaborating to offer a full wellness service to their clients.

OM encourages a holistic approach to health, wellness and conscious organic lifestyles through yoga, movement, living foods, mindfulness, meditation and Permaculture.

Mark Bennett

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).
