About Marina @ Sweaty Cat Yoga

My name is Marina, I'm 34 years old and a London based Hatha / Vinyasa Yoga teacher. I teach alignment-based Hatha / Vinyasa Yoga. This is an energizing practice, linking breath and movement to a smooth and dynamic sequence with clear instructions for safe practice and lots of modifications. I'm happy to tailor your private class to your level of experience and needs and will help you reach your full potential. I truly believe that you don't have to be super flexible in order to enjoy the benefits of a Yoga class. So don't worry too much if you can't touch your toes ;) I have started to practice yoga about 9 years ago, looking for a way to keep me balanced and happy after a fast-paced and stressful day at work. Yoga soon became my passion and daily routine, allowing myself to slow down and reconnect with myself. Experiencing the great benefits of Yoga I felt the need to share the beauty of Yoga practice and decided to get certified as a teacher. I have finished a 200h Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training accredited by Yoga Alliance at Ananda Yoga and Wellness Resort in Thailand and an additional 60h Hatha Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 in Berlin, Germany. NEWS: Due to the current global situation I've decided to add Online Classes (privates and groups) to my services. The class will be live streamed via the platform Zoom. Here's how it works: 1) I need your email address and will send you a link to join. 2) Please install Zoom on the device you want to use. 3) On the day, click on the link and you're ready to go :) For more detailed information feel free to check my website. Should you have any questions please let me know, I'm happy to help! Try it and join me for a good stretch! You've got nothing to lose ;) Best wishes, Marina

Juste P.'s review on May 05, 2020

To me Marina is 'the soothing sweaty cat' yoga teacher. Her kind words and compassion that accompany the flow of asanas make me feel very safe and kind with myself. I usually tend to overdo and with Marina I can really sink in the stretches with ease. Her unique guidance is also helping to go inwards, to experience the space within my body which I find very inspiring. I usually feel a gentle flow all over me and I find myself more vibrant after these classes. If you are seeking for inner peace and fitness - Marina is your teacher!

Marina has been amazing to work with over the last few months! Always bringing a positive and calming energy to our sessions to help us de-stress after a busy week, as well as turning up 15 minutes before the session. The classes are suitable for beginners and advance as she tailors the moves to everyone individually. During the past few weeks Marina has provided us with pre-recorded lessons to share with to team to do at home. If you’re looking for a yoga instructor Marina is perfect, we would all highly recommend!

Marinas yoga classes are truly great! She makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable and guides through different postures with great confidence. The classes I took part were a great mix of vinyasa flows and relaxed parts, all tuned to quiet background music in a very successful way. With useful comments, individual guidance and great joy Marina is a true yoga teacher!

Marina is undoubtedly the greatest Yoga teacher in London. She tailors the class to suit all of her students making us feel very comfortable going at our own pace. Marina has a wonderful way about he that relaxes the whole class. I can speak on behalf of most of them as we talk about how wonderful she is after most classes. I found Marina’s approach very healing and calming. I never really understood the want or need to attend Yoga classes, however after meeting Marina and joining her class I absolutely understand why. She also plays the perfect music to help you relax unlike a lot of other yoga teachers that play unsettling genres of music. With Marina you can absolutely be sure to leave the class feeling calm relaxed and refreshed. Whether it be the start of the day or at the end of your day. If I had the time to attend Marinas classes twice a day, I most certainly would. Whether you want to tone up, increase your flexibility, or just improve your sense of all-round well-being Marina’s yoga classes are a must! Thank you Marina for all your beautiful classes! You are just what I have been looking for. Mia xoxo

Josh B.'s review on Sep 11, 2019

Marina is a superstar, and has helped me fall in love with yoga. In the past I've been to classes and used YouTube yoga videos, and always ended up frustrated and a bit bored. I really wanted to give yoga another go to explore the benefits of a deeper mind-body connection. Marina has been a brilliant teacher for me - I find her supportive, kind, and patient, as well as calm and very present. We often work on modifications of poses so they're easier for me to relax into. As a result I've incorporated yoga into my daily routine and I'm feeling more connected and grounded in my body, as well as experiencing greater relaxation and ease of movement. I'm really grateful to Marina for helping me finally find a form of yoga that resonates with me, and I would highly highly recommend her as a teacher.

Hanna A.'s review on Jul 25, 2019

I was never really interested in yoga, but since I am attending lessons hold by Marina, I love it! I am going to her lesson once a week since a year now and I never had one where I couldn't find my way into it. She finds the right balance in between stretching, strengthening and relaxation. I can highly recommend her lessons!

Barbara C.'s review on Jul 02, 2019

Yoga with Marina was amazing! Her lessons were challenging, but also relaxing and she gave examples where everybody could choose his/her own pace and style. She looked after the whole yoga group very careful, while explaining the exercises. As a single participant, you've had the feeling that she adopted single movements, when you felt uncomfortable with some of them. I've had a great time in her lessons and felt very good afterwards, especially because you could see yourself improving over a longer time. I would recommend Marina to everybody, who wishes to find an own rhythm and style. She motivated me to do yoga at home as well :):)

Lisa D.'s review on Feb 11, 2019

A few months ago I was looking for yoga to compliment my pilates workouts and found "magical Marina". I call her that because however tired or stressed I feel or however pounding my headaches may be by the time of our yoga class, Marina releases all that tension and pain within 15 mins of our small group class. Marina is a natural at making people feeling relaxed (her voice is unbelievably soothing), at ease with their bodies and spirituality and ready to face whatever obstacles the rest of your day may bring. I love the way Marina offers options and modifications for all levels so you can turn up to her class as a novice or as an experienced fitness professional (like myself) and in both cases, leave feeling invigorated, positive, calm, perfectly stretched and utterly peaceful. Marina's skilled teaching style is rare because she is able to spot common faults happening in the room and verbally correct these without singling out attendees for their faults. She is extremely encouraging, adapts the class perfectly to her audience and gauges what they want and need on a given week. I have worked with numerous Yoga teachers and Marina is by far the best teacher of them all.

Revathy N.'s review on Feb 07, 2019

A small group of people in the firm I work for decided to take up yoga almost like a New Years resolution. And absolutely thrilled to say that it has been a success. All thanks to Marina, our wonderful and charming instructor. Two months into our Monday sessions and we no longer feel the "Monday blues" because all of us look forward to coming for yoga. She explains with complete clarity what we are supposed to take note of while doing the yoga poses, which we have all found very helpful. She is also inspiring us to push our limits a bit each week, so the classes are always interesting and fresh. And I should also compliment her on her voice, which is as soothing as the music she plays in the background during the sessions. All thanks to her we get a very relaxing start to our week! :-)

Liz C.'s review on Jan 06, 2019

Marina is a wonderful yoga teacher. All week I look forward to my lesson even though I'm quite stiff and unfit, so am not really that good at yoga - yet! She smiles a lot and is really encouraging. I also love that all the poses have options so the people at the class who are incredibly flexible can be challenged whilst I am also challenged at my own level. I'm so glad to have found such a great yoga teacher and would really recommend her to you.

Questions & answers

What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I'd love to get to know you! In order to provide you the best service and tailor the class to your wishes I'd love to have a quick chat (online/ phone/ in person) about your expectations and motivation to start this journey with me.
What are some good examples of past customers?
I've been working with busy top managers, with stressed and exhausted employees, with traveling musicians, with students, with creatives of all kinds, with struggling and tired individuals, with people who simply want to move, breathe and feel connected to their bodies. My approach is: the "goal" of yoga is not a crazy pose itself. Our aim is to find space - to create space - with every stretch we make and every breath we take. We're trying to create space in the physical body, in the mind and maybe even in the heart, one step/breath at a time and at some point we'll be surprised about where this has lead us.
