About The Teacher
Marina was born in Berlin on 17 August 1959. She became interested in healing at a very young age. This passion led her to lifelong studies in many healing modalities, including homeopathy and psychology, diving medicine, emergency response, reflexology, shamanism and reiki. Marina is a Reiki Grand Master who has been practicing and teaching this Japanese technique for over 30 years.
Marina moved to Krabi, Thailand in 2000, working first as a diving instructor, then opening her own diving center, and later working as a paramedic. During this period, she heard a deeper inner calling and turned her focus on yoga, which she had been practicing for many years. In 2008 she travelled to India where she completed her hatha yoga 200-hour teaching training course. Upon her return, she opened Marina Yoga and has been teaching yoga and meditation ever since. She completed her 300-hour YTT in Bali, giving her Yoga Alliance’s highest qualification: E-RYT500.
