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. Only physically motivated in the beginning I discovered in yoga more than I ever imagined. 

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 latest 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, which now influence my teachings profoundly.

 

Sharing yoga to me means holding a space where my students can let go of the everyday worries and thoughts to simply BE. Arriving fully in the present moment where they can be present with their breath, their body and their mind. By building this conscious body-mind-awareness we dive into deeper layers of consciousness and expand beyond our 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 via "Ma la lene". See you on the mat!"
