Marlene practices and teaches kundalini and medical Yoga, which is done in slow rate and in a meditative way. This practice includes breathing exercises, easier yoga positions, sat kriyas, mudras (hand positions), mantras (or affirmations in english as well) and meditation to release stress, center and calm the subconscious mind. Kundalini works particularly with the chakras or energy wheels in our bodies. When our chakras are blocked we tend to feel more stressed or as if some areas of our life are stagnated. Unblocking our chakras with the right asanas (yogapositions) and pranayama ( breathwork) helps the life force energy (prana) to flow naturally in our spine and whole body, boosting with energy and balancing us. Medical yoga is done in very slow rate and it is adjusted to individual needs and mild discomforts in the body.

Yoga is for everyone! It is the art of finding presence, joy and meaning in simple things. It’s a journey inwards, a genuine meeting with ourselves, where we explore our potentiality, accept and love ourselves as we are. “
