Join Marina for this exclusive 5-night retreat staying at her exquisite historic villa on the outskirts of Rome. Combine deeply restorative yoga sessions with an optional informative and intimate guided visit to the Eternal City.

Yoga

Marina will teach two classes of yoga daily.

Following meditation, a gentle early morning yoga session will be held before breakfast.

Before the evening meal, there will be a late afternoon session preceded by a Satsang session (a guided dialogue about the most important things in life as reflected through yoga philosophy).

Cultural Tour

Marina will take a break from yoga, to offer an optional guided visit to Rome wearing her other hat of art historian/curator. A native Roman, Marina is also an art curator, and is author and editor of the tenth volume of La Cultura Italiana, among many other publications on art and culture. She graduated in Art History and Classics, so you couldn’t hope for a better-informed and more knowledgeable guide to Rome.

 

About Marina

Trained initially in contemporary dance, and working professionally as a teacher and art curator, Marina began to combine her dance with yoga practice. Iyengar yoga was her first love, together with Hatha Yoga. She practiced for several years at the Iyengar Institute in Maida Vale. She later trained as a yoga teacher at Yoga Campus, London. She teaches Hatha Yoga with a base of Iyengar and elements of other styles. A strong influence on her teaching has been Aki Omori, a yoga teacher and somatic movement therapist and educator, who studied for many years with Clive Sheridan, Donna Farhi and Erich Schiffmann. From Aki, Marina learned to take a deep approach to yoga in its physical expression, paying attention to posture, habitual movement and skeletal structure. Susanne Lahusen from Yoga Campus has also had a profound influence on Marina’s teaching, developing her interest in anatomy, physiology and sequencing. In Marina’s academic work she has also investigated the neurosciences and molecular biology, all of which has contributed to a further interest in the deeper structure of the body and mind.

 

Marina pays particular attention to her students’ needs and specificities, offering yoga at different levels, according to ability. She is very happy to work with beginners and advanced practitioners in the same group, calibrating the practice to ensure that poses are absorbed with greater intensity.
