Having practiced Pilates and Yoga since her teens, as a side kick to her passion for contemporary dance, Marina decided to complete her yoga teacher training in 2012 after graduating in Engineering. Seeing bodies through the engineering lens turned her into a complete anatomy buff. Teaching and practicing Yoga made her realize how complementary Pilates is to her yoga and gym activities. She decided to add Pilates to her teaching skills in order to help her students find the strength and stability in their bodies while balancing it out with functional flexibility.
Marina’s teaching style is strict and challenging, yet emphasising mindfulness and focus to promote functional movement patterns. Studying for a PhD in Neuroimaging she is eager to rave about the many benefits of mindful exercise on cognitive and neurophysiological systems in the body. The power of human mind never ceases to fascinate her.
