Marina was born in Berlin on 17 August 1959. She became interested in healing at a very young age. This passion led her to a lifelong studiy of many healing modalities, including homeopathy, psychology, diving medicine, emergency response, reflexology, shamanism and Reiki. Marina is a Reiki Grand Master and has been practicing and teaching this Japanese technique for over 30 years.
Marina moved to Krabi, Thailand in 2000, working first as a diving instructor, then opening her own diving center, and later working as a paramedic. During this period, she heard a deeper inner calling and turned her focus to yoga, which she had been practicing for many years. In 2008 she travelled to India where she completed her hatha yoga 200-hour teaching training course. Upon her return, she opened Marina Yoga and has been teaching yoga and meditation ever since. In 20XX she travelled to Bali for a 300-hour YTT, qualifying her Yoga Alliance’s: E-RYT500.
Liat began her yoga journey in 2008. With no prior background in physical activity she was surprised to discover how right Yoga felt.
Through its challenges, Liat recognized in Yoga the great connection between body and mind, which slowly took over a large part of her life.
Since 2010 She has taught Vinyasa flow yoga in Tel Aviv, Israel in various groups and venues. She also enjoys exploring Yoga’s multiple approaches, including as Iyenger, Hatha, and Yin, as well as Ayurveda, Meditation and Buddhism.
For the past few years, she has turned her attention to studying Philosophy and Yoga Anatomy. Liat is also a Level 2 Reiki practitioner, and has taught in TTC’s all over the world.
Yoga for her goes beyond connecting with herself on the mat to an inspiring philosophy and way of life.
