Marina is a life-long Bay Area resident, yogini mama and lover of all that is wild. Her classes, workshops and retreats invite students to explore the details of all experiences with the utmost passion and curiosity. For Marina, yoga asana is an embodied ritual which has the capacity to uncover our most vibrant, potent selves. Her slow moving vinyasa classes are alignment-rich, highly creative, and meant to honor and celebrate each students unique connection to yoga. Her teachings integrate elements of somatic movement, follow the rhythms of nature and include various meditation, mudra and pranayama techniques. Her major influences have been Rod Stryker, Bryan Kest and more currently Abby Tucker, with whom she's studied extensively. Before Marina became of student of yoga, she received her BA in Ethnic Studies from UC Berkeley, where her continued passion for social justice blossomed. Her day to day life is spent mostly at home rearranging furniture for fun, in the woods collecting leaves with her kiddo, mountain biking, and gardening. Join her in enlivening your senses through yoga, travel, connection, knowledge and play!
