For the past 20 years, Marina has explored personal development, spiritual and yogic practices aiming at understanding the nature of existence and gaining insights on unfolding the human potential.
Apart from her background as design director and brand management consultant with more than 15 years of international and cross-cultural experience, Marina is a registered health practitioner (member of the German BfG/DGAM), an accredited meditation teacher and certified Master Hypnotist (Clinical Hypnosis).

These days she lives in GERMANY and INDIA, empowering individuals who are ready for higher awareness and the balancing of all levels of their being (mental, emotional, energetic, physical, spiritual). In light of her various roles in this life, Marina has a deep understanding of the challenges in the fast-paced mundane and corporate world as well as of the amalgamation of worldly and spiritual realms.
