Hello everybody, my name is Marion and I was born in 1967, by the beautiful Tegernsee in Bavaria. For my main job, I work in the customer service division of a big contact lens company, but on the side, I teach a weekly yoga-group and occasionally fill in as an instructor at a fitness studio.
How I found yoga
I first came into contact with yoga in 2008 when I was looking for ways to find balance and relief in my environment that had become increasingly stressful. Back then, I was having more and more trouble focusing and I also felt that I was losing energy and drive. Through yoga I learned to be gentler with myself and found better ways of dealing with stress. Progress came quickly, which motivated me to further engage with the subject of yoga, relaxation, and meditation. This led me to take an educational leave from work where I obtained the qualification of stress relief course leader (BYV). When I then signed up for a 2-year yoga teacher training program at Yoga Vidya e.V. I had no real intention of becoming an instructor, I simply wished to deepen my own practice. However, when I gave lessons as part of my training, I discovered my love of teaching and the fulfilment that came with seeing the contented faces of my students at the end of a lesson. In 2016 I additionally attained the qualification of Yin Yoga instructor.
I put fun at the forefront of my yoga teaching and aim to harmonize movement and breath. My motto is: “There is no yin without yang”. Following this maxim, my lessons can be challenging and filled with energy, healing and relaxing, or all of them at the same time. It’s important to me that participants have patience towards themselves and practice with positivity and happiness.
