PHILOSOPHY 

Designer & innovator, turned artist and teacher of the subtle, Mari co-creates transformative experiences across the world to contribute to shift paradigms. 
I'm passionate about the energetics of relating to our human body. My yoga, movement and meditation classes are a powerful blend of energy practices, psycho-dynamic presence exercises and creative games to tap into our interconnectedness. 
I experiment with sound creation and healing as well. 
My coaching and design practice is deeply influenced by integral philosophy and systemic thinking, as well as jungian psychology, shamanic lineages and energy healing modalities. 

Lineages include: Hatha, Ashtanga, Ayurveda, Jivamukti, Kundalini, Vinyasa Flow and Somatics
Created a hybrid curricula of ancient wisdom, western philosophy, anatomy, healing, holistic nutrition and body expression
