Marin is a 200-hour yoga alliance certified teacher based in Calgary. She started teaching yoga three years ago as an addition to teaching spin and running a personal coaching and leadership development business called dope(a)me.
As someone who struggled with mental health issues for two decades, Marin believes in the power of movement and creates thoughtful experiences in each class to support mindset shifts and joy in sweat. Through years of study in psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy, along with any other book she could get her hands on, Marin has learned how mental health issues can be your ultimate demise or the foundation for exponential growth. She turned her struggles into an opportunity and now coaches others to retrain their brain into new healthy habits, and has written about her experience in her upcoming book Be The Change.
Marin teaches spin at YYC cycle and yoga at LIV (Flow, Core & Back, Yang/Yin) as well as Friendship Fitness (Playful Flow and Yoga Beat). Marin is also the yoga instructor and wellness facilitator for Evolve Retreat Co., which offers luxury wellness retreats.
At Inspired Yoga Institute, Marin is guest faculty in our 300-hour Teacher Training, offering a module on Creating Vision and Manifestation.
