Welcome to the Peaceful Power Podcast I’m your host Andrea Claassen and today I have an interview with Marina De Lima on leaving the corporate world to become a traveling yoga instructor.
A little about Marina
Marina is a certified 200-hour registered yoga teacher. Marina received her certification in 2014 from Yoga in the World under the instruction of Anayra Calderon. After over 10 years of working in television production and entertainment, Marina came to yoga to find balance in her often hectic professional life. Marina fell in love with the way yoga challenged her physically through asana practice as well as mentally and spiritually through meditation practice. In March of 2015 Marina traveled to India to further her yoga education and study Ashtanga Vinyasa with Jamie Clarke and Dulce Aguilar of The Yoga People.
In November of 2016 Marina completed her Reiki Level 1 certification in hopes to enhance her work as a yoga teacher and to gain more understanding and knowledge of the healing powers of ancient practices.
Marina’s greatest passion in life is traveling and exploring foreign lands. Marina was bitten by the travel bug at a very young age, having traveled with her family from her native Brazil to New York City at only 2 years old. Marina believes that traveling, as much as yoga and meditation, are an essential part of her health and wellness. Traveling, retreating, adventure, as well as yoga, are all tools that Marina believes broadens your scope of the world and allows for you to get out of your own way. Exploring your bodies through asana practice, your minds through meditation, and different people and cultures through travel, cultivates compassion and kindness.
In 2015, Marina became the official Yoga Teacher for World Travelers Association (WTA) and has been teaching yoga on WTA experiences around the world. Marina’s vision is about crafting worldly, and fulfilling experiences for those who seek to learn about the world, and themselves through yoga, meditation, and adventure.
