About The Teacher

Marylene is a Yoga Alliance RYT-500 yoga teacher who specializes
in Yoga anatomy, therapeutic applications of yoga, Corporate Yoga
and Yoga for depression, stress, and anxiety.
Her passion for yoga took a new turn when she helped a friend
overcome depression through yoga. Curious about what other
benefits a holistic approach to yoga could bring, she devoted her
time and energy to study the 8 limbs of yoga. Splitting her life
between a successful international corporate career and teaching
yoga, she perfectly understood how everyday demands can get in
a way of a healthy body and healthy mind, and used this

experience to teach corporate yoga. In 2016, she decided to leave her corporate career to pursue a
PhD in Osteopathy to deepen her knowledge of the physical body. She also completed her
certifications as Reiki Master and Mindfulness coach.
Today, Marylene teaches private and group classes, and co-host Yoga Teacher Trainings in Bali,
Dubai, and Abu Dhabi. Using her own experience as a guide, she approaches yoga in a holistic way to
help clients and students find peace of mind and regain self-confidence. Passionate of anatomy and
yoga philosophy, she playfully combines elements of mindfulness, breath work, asanas, and physical
therapy to help her students achieve their specific goals.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane
