Hi there, I'm Marina!

I firmly believe that parents are stronger than they realize, and that through the practice of yoga and neurocentric drills, we can strengthen our bodies and minds even further. I teach yoga in English, Russian, and German to support as many parents as possible.

Lifelong-Learning is Everything

I am incredibly eager to learn and constantly seek to broaden my horizons, as I find great joy in discovering new things. This continuous learning is fundamental to my personal growth. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have had remarkable teachers throughout my yoga journey, who generously shared their vast knowledge with me. Now, I have the privilege of passing on this knowledge to my students, hoping to make their lives even just a bit better. I remain committed to learning, recognizing that the journey of yoga, much like life itself, is boundless and immeasurable.

My Yoga Path

Online Yoga As A Lifestyle

My journey from complete unfamiliarity with yoga to becoming a dedicated yoga teacher was remarkably swift. Unlike fitness, aerobics, running, and other sports activities, I discovered something profound in yoga that resonated deeply with me. Yoga not only enhanced the strength and flexibility of my body and mind but also allowed me to find both physical and inner balance.

Several years ago, as a young mother grappling with severe lower back pain from carrying my baby all day, I turned to yoga on the advice of a friend. My initial goal was twofold: to alleviate my back pain and to regain my pre-pregnancy shape. However, like many parents of toddlers, I found it nearly impossible to carve out time for studio yoga sessions. Instead, I turned to the readily available resources on YouTube—those videos became my lifeline.

Not only did I heal my back and tone my muscles within just a couple of months into practice, but I also began to feel much more awake and happy, despite the tremendous lack of sleep and daily stress. Obviously, I fell in love with yoga, as well as being able to practice at home without having to spend time traveling to a studio!

However, after a while, I found that I lacked a system in my classes. This tends to be a major problem with free resources, often leading to a training plateau. Since I wasn’t aware of other yoga options online at the time, I decided to enroll in an intensive yoga teacher course to deepen and systematize my knowledge. The first course was followed by the second, then the third, then the fourth… You can see the full list above if you want. This is how yoga turned from a hobby into a way of life.

After the pandemic with the rapid growth of various internet platforms and video conferencing services, it became obvious that I wanted to teach yoga online. My dream is to make yoga available to anyone who, like me, once couldn’t or didn’t want to practice in a studio.
