Marlene

Co-Founder & Yoga Teacher

"I dove into yoga in my teens in order to keep up my flexibility after practicing gymnastics for many years. 

In March 2017 I made a dream come true by traveling to India and completing my first yoga teacher training. It was a journey that transformed my life profoundly.When I came back to Berlin it felt natural to share the practice and wisdom I collected in India with others and I started to teach on donation around the city. With Leonie joining me, we founded Yoga on the Move in Summer 2017 with the vision to share yoga in a joyful and open way, making it accessible to people of all backgrounds and abilities. With my travel to the Indian Himalaya in May 2019 I deepened my knowledge of Yoga as a holistic approach to heal with the tools of Ayurveda and TCM. In September 2020 I completed my training with Dylan Werner which expanded my knowledge of myofascial anatomy and how it can be used as a holistic tool to create overall health & balance. 

 

Sharing yoga to me means holding a space where my students can fully let go to simply BE. Arriving fully in the present moment with the breath, the body and the mind. By building this conscious body-mind-awareness we dive into deeper layers of consciousness and expand beyond habitual patterns of beliefs and thoughts.

In my Vinyasa Yoga classes I link breath and movement in a creative, uplifting flow infused with my knowledge of anatomy, Ayurveda and TCM. Further I host yoga retreats, workshops, and yoga events around Europe. And yes, music plays a huge role in my classes. Check out my Spotify playlists if you like. See you on the mat!"
