MARTA BLOCKA, Co-founder, CEO

After a time in her corporate career (Apple, Patagonia, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein), Marta decided to switch gears and follow her passion for self-development and well-being. In 2020, she founded Mentalist.pl, an online education platform designed to give people the tools and knowledge they need to unlock their true potential. Her subsequent spiritual and self-development quest led her to immersion in yoga, Ayurveda, and natural healing therapies. She experienced the power of detox and holistic healing herself and decided to continue this journey with Marta and Heidi to serve the people seeking support.
