Live. Love. Adventure.
Marina is a certified 500-hour registered yoga teacher. Marina received her certification from Yoga in the World under the instruction of Anayra Calderon. After over 10 years of working in television production and entertainment, Marina came to yoga to find balance in her often hectic professional life. She fell in love with the way yoga challenged her physically through asana practice as well as mentally and spiritually through meditation practice. In 2015 Marina traveled to India to further her yoga education and study Ashtanga Vinyasa with Jamie Clarke and Dulce Aguilar of The Yoga People.
In 2016 Marina completed her Reiki Level 1 certification in hopes to enhance her work as a yoga teacher and to gain more understanding and knowledge of the healing powers of ancient practices.
Marina's greatest passion in life is traveling and exploring foreign lands. Marina was bitten by the travel bug at a very young age, having traveled with her family from her native Brazil to New York City at only 2 years old. She believes that traveling, as much as yoga and meditation, are an essential part of her health and wellness. Traveling, retreating, adventure, as well as yoga, are all tools that Marina believes broadens your scope of the world and allows you to get out of your own way. Exploring your body through asana practice, your mind through meditation, and different people and cultures through travel, cultivates compassion and kindness.
In 2015, Marina became the official Yoga Teacher for World Travelers Association (WTA) and has been teaching yoga on WTA experiences around the world. Marina's vision is about crafting worldly, and fulfilling experiences for those who seek to learn about the world, and themselves through yoga, meditation, and adventure.
