Maria has dwelt in different lineages of yoga (Sivavananda, Ashtanga, Hatha, Bhakti, Prana Yoga, Vinyasa, Yin yoga, Therapeutics) throughout her journey. Her experiential approach brought her to the realization that Yoga is a gift and a chance for each individual to rediscover vitality and inner joy.

She is a highly qualified, experienced, and certified yoga teacher. This course will cover all aspects of traditional, holistic, authentic yoga. It will be taught according to the ancient scriptures and coupled with modern medical and scientific explanations.


Ariel embraces the power of yoga to heal and transform the body and to help heighten human consciousness and create a radiant life. Known for her cheerful, engaging and nurturing personality, she approaches her students with authenticity and humor. Her creativity and ability to pay attention to details make for excellent verbal cues and allows her to help students reach their full potential and work around constraints. Her intention is to inspire others to use yoga as a space to nurture mind, body and spirit.
Ariel’s sense of adventure and eagerness for growth has led her to many hours of training, immersions, and the completion of her 500hr Yoga Teacher Training at Radiantly Alive Yoga in Ubud, Bali. Over the course of her trainings, she had the privilege to learn from various teachers such as Daniel Aaron, Alana Kaivalya, Govinda Kai, Edward Clark, Damien De Bastier, Nicki Doane, Chris Kummer, and Heather Bonker.
To complement a more active yang yoga practice, Ariel completed another 200hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training with excellent guidance from Jo Phee and Joe Barnett.

Marina (Mansarovar)

Marina (200RYS) – or Mansarovar as her yoga friends call her – practices yoga and meditation in the spiritual tradition of bhakti for the last 10 years. She has lived and studied in several yoga ashrams in India and Europe, living accordingly today. Marina teaches Yoga Inbound classes, meditation workshops and runs yoga retreats.

She specialises in mantra yoga – the art of kirtan – which is said to be one of the most auspicious meditation processes of our times. She shares the mystery of the ancient Vedic scriptures and the philosophy of yoga with everyone who has sincerely stepped on the path towards perfection.
