Hi, I’m Marina. After first stepping onto a yoga mat as a teenager, I knew that I had ‘come home’. Yoga brings me peace; it brings me self-love and self-awareness. I now have almost twenty years’ experience of teaching Yoga to all ages and levels. In 2000, I was inspired by my Yoga teacher to train as one myself. I left my job as a French Secondary school teacher in London and spent a year travelling round the world solo from 2000 to 2001, during which I completed my teacher training at the Sivananda Ashram in Kerala in India. I am always learning and have had the privilege of being trained to teach children including those with special needs, yoga for pregnancy, mother and baby yoga, meditation with Swami Saradananda, partner yoga with Sevanti and Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Shiva Rea and Claire Missingham. I teach Sivananda-inspired Hatha yoga which is a classical style of yoga. I also teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Chair Yoga and Meditation. I love exploring and deepening connections with my true self and others.
I have been told by my students that I am calm, sensitive, intuitive, supportive and encouraging. I am highly focused and passionate about my practice and genuinely care about everybody.
I thoroughly enjoy Marina’s classes – Monday is more relaxing, a great start to the week; and Friday is harder work, ready for the weekend!

Marina is a wonderful yoga teacher with a lovely air of calmness& kindness. She is warm and welcoming and her knowledge, expertise & professionalism makes you feel you’re in the right hands.
She has a beautiful studio and runs some amazing workshops on a regular basis.

I look forward to my yoga class every week and feel I benefit so much from it. It helps to relieve the tension in both my neck and shoulders and helps me relax in both body and mind. I also have the best night’s sleep after the class. I can’t recommend this class enough.

I have been to other yoga classes in the past but this one is something special. Marina is a great teacher. When she assists me I feel that she has ‘the magic touch’! My husband says I am different on the days I go to yoga-calmer and less stressed. Oh, I must not forget to mention the space where the yoga class takes place – it is beautiful and this helps to make the class feel special.
