WHO AM I
Hi. My name is Martin.
I am a former professional tennis coach turned yoga and meditation teacher, spiritual mentor, empowerment coach, business owner, a father and a proud Scouser.
My gift is bringing people together, creating safe spaces where people can be heard, seen and transform into their unique potential.
Since opening up my business, Planet Yoga, in 2013 I have been on an immeasurable journey of self-development and I am deeply inspired to share my gifts as a teacher.
I have an impressive understanding in conscious living and I have aligned my values as a conscious man to facilitate and hold space for learning, self-development, growth and transformation for all who are ready to step into their greatness.
My credentials as a yoga and meditation teacher are always developing. I have a 500 hour teacher training diploma in yoga and meditation and I am currently in the process of a 200 hour teacher training in Kundalini Yoga.
It thrills me to watch and witness the transformation of the students I have had the pleasure of working with over the last few years.
The way I present myself and my teaching is from the core of my own direct experience with life and spirituality. I now wish to serve others in this awakening of radiance, excellence and potential which are deeply aligned with my values and my purpose.
I am passionate about using the tools cultivated through meditation to awaken, inspire and uplift the gifts and potential that lie within us all. Individually and collectively reconnecting to ourself and to others by bridging the gap between naturalness, stillness and clarity. My job is to facilitate learning and to hold the space for the student to realise and understand what meditation actually is and how the skilled practice of sitting quiet, navigating the mind and training awareness can have immeasurable benefits to the choices we make and the way we navigate our life.
The hallmarks of this practice will decorate every aspect of your life:
physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
It is a wonderful and simple time-tested practice with profound benefits that include:
- Relaxation - Decreased stress - Increased mental focus -
- Clarity of mind - Create space - Balance - Acceptance - Inner stillness -
- Awaken your potential - Authentic transmission - Contentment -

"The Level One meditation course was informative, practical and motivational. The camaraderie generated by the group interaction was very uplifting; given the short time frame of the course. The teaching was of a high quality, the instruction was clear, effective and supportive. Martin's delivery promoted contribution from all, was respectful and acknowledged the dignity of everyone. The content's impact is still resonating strongly and has clearly empowered a new level of awareness. Thank you martin." - Joe Welsh
"The work I’ve done with Martin has taken me to another level, not just spiritually but in my work life too. Prior to working with Martin I was doing well from a business perspective but massively out of balance with the other elements in my life. Upon the completion of his level 1 & 2 meditation courses, I’ve been able to tap into my spiritual self which has immensely drove my business through the roof. I’m still exploring and seeking Martin’s work and excited for his future courses. I will be forever grateful to him for all his work!" - Tom Owens
