Marina became captivated by yoga through self-practice guided by David Swenson’s Ashtanga Yoga: The Practice Manual in 2001. Soon thereafter she studied Bikram yoga with Marlon McGann and more recently Iyengar yoga with Terence Ollivierra & John Schumacher, and Ashtanga yoga with Rexx Samuell & David Ingalls. Having the desire to deepen her practice and understand more about this thing called ‘yoga’, she completed a 200-hour teacher training at the Buddha B Yoga Center in Washington, DC and is thankful to have had such wonderful instruction by Rexx Samuell, Valerie Grange, and Hari-kirtana das. She is grateful to her other inspiring teachers: Kristen Krash, Antonella Accinelli, and Lori Ritland. Marina hopes to share with others the joy & insight that yoga has brought to her life.
