Mari is a Yoga Alliance qualified yoga teacher, based in Berlin.
Having danced ballett for over 17 years, Mari has always been into sports since she was little. Yoga in the contrary was not really her thing for a long time.
Inspired and scared by the yoga hype in the western world, Mari asked herself what is behind it. The variety classes and teachers is as diverse as the people and their motivations to attend a class: strengthen the body, calming the mind, to do good for body and soul.
But often the opposite is the outcome. So Mari was inspired to not just teach another yoga class, but to help her students to reach their goals in a healthy way.
Dynamic exercises in flow that break the thinking in the box system and adapt to the practitioner. Special Stretching classes to relieve muscle tension and to elongate them in order to reduce the risk of injury. It goes hand in hand with an awareness for the body, a training of pranayama & meditation. And having fun.
Just fun brings you consistency, consistency brings you success.
By developing physical strength and a steady practice,
Yoga becomes a moving meditation to calm the body and mind.
Have fun with what you are doing
and go your own way.
and go your own way.
Mari started yoga because of the athletic aspect. Then she found out that there is a deeper value of the yoga practice than just a strong, flexible body. The mind also gets stronger and flexible, calms down and reacts more balanced to stress, daily life and challenges.
Through a combination of a dynamic flow, music, and mindful observation, you reconnect body and breathing, and through that body and mind. There is no kind of paradigma. For Mari, it is the combination of different yoga & sport styles, philosophy and the influences of our modern world that brings understanding and peace in our challenging daily life.
Mari truly believes that every person has to find and go its own way.
She encourages the practitioners to be open for new experiences & challenges of body and mind. By expressing energy, you release tension and you calm the mind at the same time.
